Modern Ruins

Intriguing photo essays speak for themselves. Rather a lot of commentary by the photographer as well.

When first visiting ruins I realized that these abandon buildings had an interest and meaning that went beyond the original design intent, that in fact they had become something quite different; the original function had become lost with time and disuse and there had been a transformation over time from a utilitarian structure to one that was void of function.

The Arsenal is fascinating. I wonder what its original purpose was.

I love the super precarious turret on that remaining bit of wall.
