i've always been obsessed with abandoned ruins. things once lived in & now in a ghostly state of emptiness. things here have been in a similar state. everything has slowed down & i feel like i've been hibernating, analyzing the wreckage of the past. check out more work by richard nickel jr's photographs here.

Places like the ones you showed are really a double-edged sword... they're extremely charming and "magnetic" but a the same time they cause me panic attacks!
That's how I felt when I visited some abandoned coalmine, and concentrations camp.
The things that scares me most are abandoned asylums and hospitals, and the one that are more beautiful for me are abandoned amusement parks!
I once also visited an abandoned factory and it was awesome! I completely agree with your passion for those places!

You can almost see those smiley little ghost faces in the background shots! Truly creepy and loving it! The Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, TX should be photographed like this! It is truly haunted!! Google it and see why!
