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.

Nice pix!


Hey these really are good pictures. I want to take photographs of churchyards, mausoleums and the like, but have been so disappointed with my camera phone that I have decided to buy a "proper" digital SLR.

I know I am spoilt for choice, but the one that seems best at the moment id the Lumix G3:
http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_...MIX+G+Micro+System+Cameras/4855154/index.html Once I've got it in my hot little hands, I'll be off to my local cemetery (Nunhead, South London) and start snapping. I'll put the results on here.

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. :cool:

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 believe Spike Milligan had - I told you I was ill - on his gravestone

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

Seeing ruins is where I'm at, kind of a concrete Planet of the Apes, only hydro and shipping canals.
All the abandoned locks and reservoirs of the first Welland Canal, down the escarpment at St. Catharines,
the remains of the second and third Welland canals, with feeder canals, all peninsula wide.
The concrete ruins of Erie Beach, and now Crystal Beach, old amusement parks, are Lake Erie shore-like.
Yeah, this guy needs to come to the Niagara Peninsula.

It was carved in stone, a stone that's been taken from public viewing.
"after paying for a pole and a copper wire, hydro power will be as free as the water over the falls".
Nobody's laughing about that one.

If I didn't see the wide structural gaps in the stonework of the right wall,
I wouldn't think it's abandoned. That's my kind of fixer-upper.
That is a nice photo.

Do you remember the song "Gary Indiana".
