    WAOW.... it's not too long into the future before this one might actually crumble to the ground and all the stories contained within, will be history.

        Feel particularly drawn to the second image there. I think because the building is more or less holding together, but sagging and spatially distorted-looking and disorienting in a warped science-fiction sort of way.

      The Slaughter house in Aalesund has been abandoned for several years, but the buildings are still standing.
      Through this gate thousands of cows has past, to be offloaded at the ramps in the background:


      From these ramps tonnes of Oxtongue, Oxtail, Ox Filet and other Ox delicacies have been distributed:


      Whatever happened to the COWS???

        Cows replaced by chiecken perhaps.... even turkey's are out here in my end of the country, according to people in the business.

          This Saturday I walked into the forest a few kilometers from my home, a place I've heard alot about, where it is a handful of old abandoned houses.
          I only visited one this time and I didn't feel like entering alone

          Once it lit up the porch. The other thing there is a misplaced electric shoe dryer

            Also took a picture of the kitchen with my iPhone. Also added HDR and a certain softness to it

              Sterkoder,

              Dear Sir,

              I really love these two last posts... inspiring, interesting and clearly, they have a story to tell. Once upon a time, someone took great care of creating these places, but for some unknown reason, they have been abandoned, neglected and left to rot. There are surely many stories behind and we can only speculate. There is a (morbid) obsession for me to study abandoned places.

                Thank you.
                Yes, a kind of morbid obsession. But as I walk alone, I don't dare to step inside, even in daylight.
                The reason, or a large part of it is that we can never be sure about the floor or roof, and as I am rather heavy, I don't take the chance of being left alone falling down or something. So be aware folks, be at least two together when entering abandoned places.
                The local school use these houses (there are in fact three or four spread around in the same forest) to learn about photography and making films/videos, and the class of my daughter used this house to make a horror video some four years ago.
                A dream is to go to Harestølen sanatorium, before they rebuild it as a hotel (yes, there are plans), and now one must pay NOK (150,- I belive) to enter for taking pictures. I guess there's a guy and possibly a woman living up there, who also act as guides.
                You can learn more about this on YouYube or when you Google Harestølen sanatorium.

                Moody pictures indeed!

              I agree with you Sterkoder, safety must be a priority when entering abandoned places. You can never be sure about the construction of the place and whether it can still carry the weight of anyone.

              Harestølen and Chernobyl are two of my dream places to go - and as you say, Harestølen is in the process of being legally transformed into a hotel and/or spa. Plans are indeed moving forward.

                My daughter and I went out today with our cameras. I wanted to show her a place I've known of for quite some time and she wanted to take me along to an abandoned concrete building in the middle of the town. In fact, in the middle of Nordsundet inlet under the Nordsundet bridge.

                I love abandoned places and stuff, I love the natural light, and here are my images from todays walk.

                      Fascinating new additions, Sterkoder.

                      Just imagine the stories behind those walls... as they say, if these walls could talk....!

                        Update on the old slaughterhouse in Aalesund. It is being demolished and will be replaced with blocks of flats in due course.

                          Slow process, but progressing. Reverting.

                          Will be a nice place to live I would think. Spectacular view and close to town.

                            Some recent photos of the old Internat at Sarnes. I still find this place hugely spooky.
