BUILDINGS IN EUROPE
There is a surprisingly large number of abandoned buildings around the
world, some of which are left almost completely untouched. Just imagine -
luxurious mansions, ancient castles, churches, unfinished hotels, and opulent
theaters all left to the elements for years and years, slowly being taken over
by nature. Certainly, there is a special, eerie kind of allure in these
buildings, one that makes us realize just how fleeting and temporary life
These photos were taken by Belgian photographer Christophe Van De Walle and his wife, Isabelle, who travel through Europe and photograph rare, untouched abandoned buildings. It takes extensive research to find buildings like these, and the couple makes sure not to disclose the locations to protect their integrity.
Clancy's comment: Whenever I see any of these I try to imagine who lived there, and what happened within their walls.
