In such a densely packed state it can be difficult to find abandoned buildings. Many abandoned properties are simply knocked down to make room for more malls or upscale apartment complexes. When you’re tight on space, every square foot matters. Even still, if you know where to look, there are a treasure trove of abandoned places just waiting to be explored. Many of these buildings are on public property; as for the ones that aren’t, we’ll just have to live vicariously through these photos.
In the end, nature always wins. That may be reassuring for some though it may be unsettling for others. Either way, the significance of nature reclaiming urban sprawl and industrial progress does not go overlooked. Whatever it means to you, it can not be denied that there is something meaningful going on. Trees and towers meld together to create unique landscapes that seem to work together despite being stark in contrast. What’s your view on abandoned buildings being left to nature? Do you have any favorite spots to scope out similar sights?
