Slightly new...

Firstly, I have to say I'm really glad I joined this community [and it's sister], as I take a great interest in thin's that are abandoned and returnin' to nature.

I don't have any photographs of my own to share [due to lack of workin' scanner]. Howeva, there are plenty on-line of one of my favorite pieces of decay that was savagely destroyed four years ago.

There was a roller coaster out on Coney Island that sat and rotted for ova thirty years. I was privliged enough to have seen and photgraphed this wonderful structure before it died. Sadly, there aren't enough people in this world that appreciate this sort of beauty, so I'm glad to have found these communities.
