It almost looks like the towers are walking, George Lucas-style.

This thread is fantastic!

I'm sure everyone's seen the following before, and even though the story behind it is false, the site features some great pictures.

Chernobyl pictures

:D That's one of my favorite sites. I have a few more...
If you feel like digging through 5 pages worth of posts, then Sykospark's Rivethead forum has a thread on urban decay.

Here are a few ghost stations for the London Underground. The Aldwych Station Tour is my favorite bit.

the motorcycle one is a classic. it will probably be ever-popular. i saw that awhile back, and it seemed that she mentioned Kawasaki a lot, but maybe she was just proud of her bike.... ;-)

i should qualify a few statements. *usually* the meth labs don't burn down the houses, but there are a lot of meth labs here ("meth capital of the world"), and my neighbor's house burned last summer. and i'm not the *only* runner in town. i've seen runners on three occasions. they were probably relatives of residents.

Another email. Part II:

"I added more Desert Hot Springs photos:
http://www.geocities.com/cactus2clouds/photos/dhs/

The first image is extremely gross and disturbing. Do not click on 0A if these kinds of things upset you or if you are not feeling ready for this sort of thing at the moment. If you normally get upset easily, then don't click on it at all. It's very sad, and I cried when I saw it the first time and realized that the dog was not sleeping. It was probably heat exhaustion. After a few months I calmed down enough to take a picture.

The car-boat contraption in all of it's glory: 6A, 7A, 11A. Look very closely at 11A. Read the bumpersticker.

The muffler-vaccum-hose drinking fountain: 31A and 35A.

1532 has a very different feel. Scenic landscape. Postcard-like. Completely different take on the city. It's the image the city wants tourists to believe, but it is not the reality of what happens in D-Town."

I'd love to wander around in that asylum from the OP link, or the orphanage. Amazing photos.

It showed up for me after I viewed the image on the site. Not working now. Hotlinking is probably disabled, but it shows up if the image is already in your cache.

Weird, we have a non-decaying ghost town with it's own website.
I remember this being creepy when I was a kid, but the website makes it down right homey.

Shaniko Hotel and Cafe for sale

These have some nice black and white photos, but nothing really outstanding.

Here's a shot from a mausoleum we visited today. I'm guessing we weren't meant to be in this part.

Please note the headless statue. I'm pretty sure its the patron saint of broken toilets and 'places you really aren't supposed to be in even if the door was unlocked and open.'

The annoying thing that there wasn't apparently a bathroom in the place, at least the parts open to the public and/or not behind locked doors.
