15 Images of God’s Abandoned Houses

Spread the love

Over the past three years, photographers have traveled over Europe taking pictures of abandoned homes of god. However, because I travel to Italy frequently and there appears to be a church in every village, most of the images were taken there. It fascinates me to observe how each nation has its own unique method for building these halls of worship. It was more difficult to visit one place than the other. Some of these structures were like strolling through a park because everything was open and nobody was maintaining it. Some were more difficult. The simplest involved a chance encounter with a gorgeous woman who just so happened to have the key to the main entrance of the abandoned chapel I wanted to see. The one that required me to scale a tall brick wall, squeeze through a small opening, and push through the bushes without trying to draw attention to myself was the most difficult.

I tried to convey the beauty of deserted chapels and churches in this picture. These kinds of locations may be quite old and rich in history. It’s interesting to observe the many architectural styles, and I think each location has a unique tale to tell. It’s wonderful to be able to provide a glimpse inside a place like this. Because of the privacy of what happens “behind” the altar, chapels and churches are some of my favorite abandoned places to explore. I get to explore every space and discover the most incredible stuff. Among them are things like clothing, antiquated books, and tools for performing services. Some of the locations I’ve captured on camera are kept up nicely by volunteers who have a great deal of respect and pride in the structure. They gladly took me on a tour. Usually, I only experience this when photographing shuttered churches or chapels.

In several of these locations, I was certain of what I would witness. It does occasionally surprise me, though. Some rooms appear considerably bigger or smaller when I personally visit them because a snapshot can be quite deceptive. It is apparent that the light also has a significant influence on that. The level of detail in architecture or other objects that I find regularly astounds me. I picture humans scribbling decorations on walls or carving out intricate designs in stone or wood. While investigating the history, I’m astounded by the ceiling paintings that I can see. In a video from one of the churches mentioned in this post, Adolf Hitler can be seen striding by the building’s front entrance and standing on the stairs leading up to the doors. Some of these locations have a tremendous historical influence.
