    That is a very nice link you found there! There is something fascinating about ruins. The special deserted, lonesome feeling about them. That feeling is perhaps even stronger with "modern" ruins, as they are in some ways more concerning to us.

    Yes. Nice New Section here. will give us musos a place to go look when we need a break from the "dots". I agree with
    Frederik,the modern ruins are very close to us and make us think of the good & bad that has happened since the "Pompei" and other Ancient ruins we always see. tak again. pamadu/Paul

    Amazing what you find when you start searching through old threads. If anyone has not seen these pictures I recomend that they view them. The B/W makes the imagaes even more evocative. Beautifully done.

    I know I am spoilt for choice, but the one that seems best at the moment id the Lumix G3:

    Look forward to seeing your pictures Chou. There are already lots of old ruins on this site, and I have just added to them.

    If you really want to depress us include a few head stones + a quick visit to the Morgue and of course the A&E.

    I enjoy touring cemeteries and reading the headstones. It can be quite interesting and often amusing. I remember seeing one a few years ago which said; "I Told You I Was Sick".

    I remember seeing on the Internet a picture of one that read (more or less): "All things considered, I'd rather be in Philadelphia".

    That is alleged to be the inscription on the stone for W. C. Fields.

    I would guess perhaps he was.
