Introspection in Images: Fascinated by Decay 001

Standard

I have always been fascinated by the decaying remains of human structures.

That sounds weirder when I say it out loud, but I always knew I was weird.

I love to take pictures of stone buildings being overgrown with ivy, old gravestones, wooden houses being reclaimed by nature. Old monuments. Mossy stones set up by ancient people. It all fascinates me.

My first digital camera probably took more pictures of things like that, than it did people. I have hundreds of photos from trips around town and around the world of the things humans have built that are now wasting away.

Today, I’ll share a few of them with you.  And I expect in later posts I’ll share some more.

I hope you can see the beauty in them that I do.
