Railway Sheds


I'm sure they have an official name, probably some phrase containing the word "service", but to me they're just "sheds" or "cubes". You see them randomly dropped along the sides of the line. I'm sure they have numerous purposes, but this one seems to have outlived its usefulness.

This bundle of rusting decay been "put out to pasture" in the parking lot of Oakville Station.

Destruction rather than decay
This is a steel-reinforced concrete car park in Liverpool, built post-war after bomb damage had removed the previous buildings on the site. I caught it as the demolition team were taking a break at the weekend. The things that look like spaghetti are the steel rods in the concrete.

KOYAANISQATSI
The American Empire is only temporary.

English Translation of "Koyaanisqatsi":
ko. yaa. nis. katsi [from the hopi language],
n. 1 crazy life. 2. life in turmoil.
3. life disintegrating. 4. life out of balance.
5. a state of life that calls for another way of living.


This brand new community is for art, ideas, and writing about the end of the American empire-- That is not to say you need to "want" it to end to join—but, rather you see that things are in some ways spinning out of control—

Northern Quarter, Manchester, UK, Aug 2004
Hi, been watching here for a while but first post of photos. :)



I love this one, it's a circle of photos of a rainbow with the arc joined up to make a ring. It is great to know there are other people out there that find beauty in the strangest places.

2 pics, cut for size...more on the gallery linked at the bottomCollapse )

hailing from Soviet times
in former Soviet countries there's a lot of things that function despite all symptoms of progressing decay. call it stubborness/reality resistance, heh

under the cut: the bread-baking factory, Rostov/Don, RF; thermal pipes around it

Lost Camera

I really hope this isn't some urban myth / hoax type thing, but someone posted this url in an IRC chat about a Lost Camera. They extracted some nice photos from it which strike me as very 'Urban Decay' type photos.

Thought I'd post it here so people can see the pictures and who knows, might be their camera..

I know I'd hate to lose mine.
