Sadly, Utterly Abandoned Homes

I love them all and so many more. There will definitely have to be a second homes series. If anyone has any information on any of these, please share!

What an awesome building! This most likely used to be a hotel. The image was taken upstate New York, around Hunter Mountain. This photo has been posted on so many different sites, it was hard to tell who the original photographer was.

Sadly, Utterly Abandoned Ships & Boats

The first two images are wholly fascinating to me. A Civil War romance tale could be easily woven around this lost and abandoned ship.

Further down, the image of the ship in the middle of what appears to be a desert is bizarre, yet scary. How did the vast Aral Sea just dry up? I don’t know, but it’s happened repeatedly throughout the many millenniums of this planet’s existence.  You can see that many of the vessels in this Sadly, Utterly Abandoned set have become beached by receding waters. Who knows when the tides will turn and all bodies of water that have slowly been ebbing away will be fully restored? No one on Earth can predict the future.
