Abandoned Places.

by Jamie Sanford on November 26, 2010

I love to photograph things that are old, decrepit, abandoned – whatever you want to call it.  One of my favorite photographic excursions was to a random abandoned motel on the side of a road in Florida that we stopped at in 2008.  Here are two shots from that trip to the Underwood Motel – click through to reach the entire set.

Underwood Motel 4, close up.
Underwood Motel 7.

Where I am going with this is that there are massive groups of photographers who love this stuff as well – and some with much more talent than myself.

The most recent addition to the collection of documentation of these abandoned places is a spectacular video documenting the abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans, LA.  It closed due to Hurricane Katrina, and never reopened.  It will be demolished in January.  The video is a bit long but is beautifully shot.

There are a lot of websites covering abandoned places:
