    An old abandoned house at Tronjordet on island Kvaløya that has stood empty for many years.

      That is one beautiful shot...

      For some really odd reason, I find abandoned buildings so extremely fascinating and interesting... I can not explain why, but they are truly full of details.

      Therefore, please do not forget this (or any of the other abandoned-thread for ships and for cars we have elsewhere on the forum) thread.

      I just saw a program on History Channel HD which showed us how life on earth would be x- and xx- and onwards, years after a sudden disappearance of humans from the earth. Absolutely fascinating! Love to see and study more.

      I'm currently trying to figure out some building in my area which I could go an photograph, but they are hard to come by and come close to.

        I couldn’t possibly forget this thread, not only for the compelling fascination the subject matter has for me too, but because it has become one of the quintessential CVF “things” – that evocative phrase Abandoned houses and properties (yes, I know dilapidated is also now included!) has a kind of compelling resonance.

        So it’s surprising that it’s been a while since I posted here…but I am about to make up for that – with not just a single property, but an abandoned village!

        Rather than seeming to take over with too many photos of one place, I’ll merely post a panorama photo as a “teaser” here.



        I’ll return to add a link to the Arctic thread when I have begun to post more images of Dundas in Greenland – also known as Thule.

        Added Edit: The photos of Thule which include the abandoned village of Dundas are now posted and start here.

          A whole village abandoned... what a treat!

          Though, it doesn't appear abandoned...

          I have to admit that it is really hard to find abandoned buildings around my area. I know of only three near me right now. But sometimes, I find it difficult to get close to them, not knowing if someone still owns them and if I'm trespassing.

                    This would be a building I would love to explore and photograph: Lier Mental Hospital:

                    Incredibly spooky, so only a day time visit for me, and with someone who I know will NOT try to scare me....

                      Here are some more examples of abandoned buildings:

                      Interesting theme indeed... I wish we could get more members interested in this, because I would love to see so much more.

                        Tell me, am I the only one here fascinated by old abandoned and dilipated buildings?

                        Here is a farm I came across on a recent walk from Bekken parking to Estenstadhytta in Trondheim:

                          No, you’re not, pakarang. It is my absolute favourite CVF thread of the non-ship ones.
                          I’m always on the look-out for things for this thread, really I am.
                          I suppose I don’t so easily get out and about locally without own transport, but I do have a couple of buildings in mind that I intend to return to and take photos of soon... Meanwhile, I’ve an abandoned church in Greenland, images that I was rather pleased with, to show you shortly….

                            I just had a look at the mental hospital link...WILD!

                            I don't know if you and I together would be brave enough....we might need several folks to go with us...really spooky.

                              I’d decided I might be brave enough E …but then it said at the end something about being illegal to enter –it would be just my bad luck to be seen by some passing policeman and arrested for trespassing….perhaps banned from visiting Norway ever again…now that is a really scary thought!

                              But the odd thing is I could have sworn that I had said all this at the time you posted the link, pakarang, but clearly I haven’t posted anything….now that does feel spooky.

                                That mental hospital would be awesome to visit... but I'm not sure I would have dared venture inside with Lady E... I have a feeling she might have tried to scare the water out of me, by hiding and jumping out in front of me screaming BOOOOO....

                                Trespassing is one of the scary scenarios for me as well, but I doubt it would be a serious offense. Naturally, it would be better in advance to clarify the entry with someone in charge or the property owner, asking them for permission and stating why we would want to enter. But sometimes, there are no owners, and there are none to ask.
