I initially did urban exploring in Finland when I learned about this location where all these summer cottages had been abandoned following a fire many years ago. It was a bit tough to get there because I didn’t have a car, so I had to use a few different modes of public transit. I was not disappointed when I eventually did.
Consider yourself strolling through a forest with no indications of life in sight. It appears to be the ideal location for a corpse to be hidden. There was complete silence. Then you come across the first abandoned house. It’s straight out of a horror film.
There’s something thrilling about discovering these locations, and it’s a great photo opportunity. It’s distinct. It’s thrilling! My interest in urban exploring has only grown. So, in the hopes of inspiring you to take on the task of uncovering these forgotten antiquities, I’ve selected 30 photographs of abandoned locales. The locations are not identified. Using your investigative abilities to locate these spots on your own is half the fun. Enjoy!
Every year around Halloween, I go through my picture archives to see what frightening images I can upload to a themed blog to share with Huffington Post readers.
In 2014, I gave you 13 Photos of Creepy Abandoned Places, and in 2015, I continued the topic with 20 Photos of Creepy Old Abandoned Houses. So, since my pattern is to present a list style, how about we look at 31 even more incredible images from abandoned buildings on Halloween?
I’ve gone very deep into my archives to see what I can discover, and I’ve featured photographs from abandoned mad asylums, deserted hospitals, abandoned residences that appear to have been abandoned by the owners, and many more decrepit and frightening old structures.
Some refer to what I do as “urban exploration.” The study of sections of society that are generally hidden or off-limits, such as abandoned structures, sewers, roofs, or active facilities, is referred to as urban exploring.
