Abandoned Man-Made Creations: Artificial Owl



Today I found this website that documents fascinating abandoned creations of man. This is very intriguing to me because growing up I lived a few miles away from a cement plant. This cement plant was the one that produced the cement for the Brooklyn bridge. It was amazing as a child to explore this property there were a lot of cool find there. I once in a while try to find it on google maps but the satellite imagery is not very good there. Another trip I took with my wife also allowed us to stumble upon abandoned buildings. We went Shelling when we went to Naples, Florida and on this one island there were abandoned homes every where. It was like a graveyard of abandoned dreams. So when I found this site it brought all kinds of great memories back to me. The one that I thought was quite sad was the public book storage building in Detroit. Anyway, take a looksy.






More sites with abandoned property.
Artificial Owl - Great site and up to date
Abandoned Places - Very cool looking site but they made it not as cool to find the good content.
Grave Addiction - Simple site good content
Abandoned but not forgotten - Terrible design but good content
Haunted Abandoned Buildings - Simple site some content
Let me know if I forgot a good link for this one
