in the land of milk fog & rust.

whether closed to accidental deaths, nuclear meltdowns or poor sales, these photographs chronicle the abandoned amusement parks overseas left to decay in haunted splendor. the eeriness of these photographs appeals to my simultaneous attraction and fear of such landscapes; left in a frozen standstill as the natural settings swallow what was once populated by the laughs & screams of children & families. take a peek over at nileguide to read about each park and why it was closed & to see more creepy photos.

That first photo is so amazing! I find abandoned places like these sort of romantic, in an eerie way...

I wish we had places like these in my country...

Love these photos. If I was ever going to write a novel, it would feature an abandoned amusement park!

I've visited these photos again and again and just wanted to tell you how very much I have enjoyed them. I'm especially haunted by that last one, and am wondering at all the wonderful stories that could be set in these places!
