As a continuation to the previous post, "Under Construction", here are some more abandoned places. These images are taken from Coolist, off a post named Abandoned Places: 10 Creepy, Beautiful Modern Ruins. Like in the case of industrial areas and construction sites, I guess one of the things that fascinate me the most about deserted landscapes, is probably the creative carte blanche they provide, as far as photography is concerned.

They can be captured in many different ways and techniques, but what I usually do is fantasize about fashion shoots and the incorporation of seemingly unbecoming and/or "contrasty" subject into these blank lanscapes.
