Urban Decay by BrandonRechten Urban Decay by BrandonRechten
I used to love coming to this building and wandering around inside it. I remember when I first ventured there -- it was a cold winter day. The air was brisk and the only sounds to be heard were of my feet crunching broken glass, the rustling of the leaves, blowing around inside and the occasional fluttering of wings as pigeons entered and exited from above.

This building no longer exists. It was razed to the ground a few months ago, which saddened me, despite the fact that it had been abandoned for about 15 years and was generally an eye-sore to the rest of the town. Thankfully, I still have a decent number of photos of which to remember it by.

That's a great piece! We run a small press magazine called Morpheus Tales (www.morpheustales), and we're currently working on an Urban Horror Special issue. We'd love to use your artwork in the magazine. Unfortunately we can't pay but you would receive an electronic contributor's copy of the magazine.

Let us know if you're interested: morpheustales@blueyonder.co.uk

thanks,

Adam

Thanks! Yeah, I was more than a little disappointed when I drove by and saw it had been torn down. I'm glad I was able to get a good number of shots before it was though.

Oh yeah, I'm sure I would be just as disappointed. That really does stink, although I understand why it needs to happen a lot of the time. Safety and all that. Glad you got those good shots, too. :nod:
