    I also saw this program on .. uhmmm... probably the Discovery Channel. It was both very amazing, eery, and kind of sad...

    I do remember a brand new play ground which was due to open only a few days after the blast: that naturally never happened, and all the brand new toys were left to rotten slowly.

    This thread is now starting to become extremely interesting... I think I'll go and cast a vote on this thread now!

        ... so this if OFF TOPIC. In my opinion, abandoned looks like you can move in again after some renovation.

          Is this off Topic?? It looks like the roof has been abandoned, even by the walls and the foundation. How can it be more abandoned then that?

            I think it was actually a corrugated tunnel shape that has eventually collapsed- whether by the wind or more direct force I do not know.

                No secret amongst you all, this is one of my favourite threads of the forum. I do not wish to see this thread dying, so I breathe some life into it again by posting some new images of abandoned houses and buildings.

                All these next buildings are located along the main shipping line, just north of Rørvik in Norway, and was photographed on May 16th 2009.

                I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

                  Why do your abandoned buildings in Norway look so much more interesting than mine in the USA?

                    Maybe somebody's weekend and summer retreat?

                      At first glance, it doesn't look abandoned in the sense we have seen some of the other buildings here, but, this one has actually been left for a high number of years.

                      The owner hasn't returned and the house is left 'as is' for a long time.

                      Ten or twenty more years down the road, and the house would look even more deteriorated.

                      But as you say, it looks like a nice house and could be a nice restoration project for anyone wanting a summer sea view property.

                      The red 'tractor' is actually just the railings on the stairs, and the fields is probably tended to by a farmer from another farm who rents the land.

                          Actually, not much post processing was done on this one.. I had the low and very warm midnight sun in my back, therefore the somewhat warm and sharp colors.

                            Abandoned Hotel

                            Here is an "abandoned" hotel in Singapore. (Formerly ANA Hotel).





                            I have no idea why it hasn't been demolished and replaced with something new as this is in prime area. It has not operated for at least 5 years.
                            Property right is probably not abandoned, but may be disputed.

                                Actually, I really DO love living in older houses..my house now was built in 1910, but in New Jersey, we lived in a house built in 1792.

                                I really get uplifted when I see how clever people can be when they take an old abandoned building- especially beautiful old warehouse or office building with character- and convert it into homes.

                                And my heart aches for the beautiful buildings Ombugge shows us in Rangoon. My beloved Burma...they wouldn't let us explore much- and seeing those buildings on the Strand just makes my heart hurt.

                                I so agree with you Ralf- why do people go and build something new when there's something to renovate. Such a waste.

                                I've never much cared for straight walls and even floors......maybe because I am "out of plumb" myself??????? It would explain a lot..........
