What do you think about when you see old and abandoned structures that are too close to falling apart?
I don’t know about you, but I think such places are fascinating. Old buildings usually look different from the newer ones standing today, especially if they were constructed in a certain style. It also makes me wonder about the stories surrounding these places, since knowing them makes the experience of stepping into them more interesting. While it’s true that sometimes it’s just a case of its former residents transferring to a newer building (or some other practical reason), there are also times that the reason’s a more sinister one. But whatever the case may be, it can’t hurt to know about them!
If the idea of exploring an abandoned building sounds appealing to you, or it doesn’t but you’re still wondering how one looks like, then have a look at some of these photos our users have taken using the Lomo LC-A and Lomo LC-A+ cameras! But not too close, though – you might see something lurking in the shadows!
