Abandoned Places: Photos by Smithsonian.com
Photos of places once occupied now sitting in decay which includes industrial facilities, amusement parks, military sites, and small villages and cities.In a world that is full of overcrowding and overpopulation, it’s hard to believe that there are places that, once populated, now sit unoccupied. Whether it be abandonment due to war, economic collapse or disaster, these locations offer a look into a place where time stopped. Once thriving locations are now modern day ruins, sitting in decay.
