Detroit Lost Dreams

Today I wanted to talk about something else...but I came across some pictures with abandoned places and I just couldn't resist showing them to you.

I admit. I have an obsession with places like this.
Abandon places.
Urban abandon places!

And when talking about this subject, there's no better example then Detroit. Well...I want to visit Detroit. To see all the beauty, to listen to the silence of places once filled with noise and activity. Places that even long after being populated, still tell a beautiful story.
As the industrial revolution came to a close and race riots crippled a once bustling city, many buildings throughout Detroit fell into disrepair and eventual abandonment.
Pretty sad. And believe me when I tell you, I just can't imagine why would anyone abandon such beautiful places. Well...I'm not stupid, I understand why...but who knows, maybe in the years to come, that area of Detroit will be popular once again! I said it so many times...HOPE is the only thing that remains.
When lost...there's simply nothing left.

Now, please enjoy more images, by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre:Images: theCoolist

These look amazing. Reminds of this: which has the same eerie vibe.
