Dark Passage

After seeing this post by Diana from Please Sir...I was reminded of a site that I came across a while back. I'm in total agreement with Diana about the haunting beauty of an abandoned building or place and that's why I love Dark Passage. A collection of photos taken by "urban archaeologists," this site provides a documentation of architectural decay. I'm captivated by the poignancy in these photos and I thought I'd share a collection of my favorites...

Some of these spaces inspire me, but others kind of creep me a bit. I'm kind of funny that way. I tend to get a little spooked in abandoned places. Nice collection however. I'm glad you posted these.

I totally agree :) The funny thing is...I love looking at these places but I probably wouldn't want to visit any of them (unless I was with a big group of people during the day time)! I like to look at spooky things and freak myself out a little...I'm crazy like that!
