Abandon writer’s block, all ye who enter here!
I recently joined Pinterest and picked my Fav Five categories.
How could I resist Abandoned Mansions? I love old things. The intrigue of deserted places overwhelms me. What happens to a human structure left to the elements? Who lived here once? What are the stories of the inhabitants, their history? And most of all, why were these places abandoned in the first place?
Here are some of my favs. I wandered through the maze of images for hours: a Chinese box of websites within websites of lost stories.
There are boards devoted to abandoned amusement parks. Even forsaken Disney parks!
Pianos only spirits enjoy today.
And of course the ruin-in-progress, the de-urbanizing legend that is Detroit. In the theme of Wasn’t the Future Wonderful, do check out the extraordinary documentary, Detropia.
