Obsolete Spaces

Large scale abandoned buildings manage to be creepy no matter what - whether they are amusement parks, old factories, or dilapidated apartment buildings. But when you photograph them with eerie washed out colors, and random pieces of equipment and furniture that hint at their earlier existence - well then it looks downright sinister. Like this image for example

Well, apparently the Russians dig that vibe, as there is a whole "Lost in Time"
photo gallery that explores photographs of these abandoned spaces. Some of them look like set pieces from Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys, while others just hint at the type of economic collapse that leaves huge buildings like these as relics of a past global prominence.

I highly recommend exploring the other albums yourself as there is a plethora of haunting images among the bunch.
