A rush of excitement flows through, every time I visit these lonesome alien world call abandoned places. As you explore, you tend to ask yourself the question. Who lived here? Where did they go? Left untouched for so many years. Peeling walls, molds and dark corners creates beautiful scenes to capture.
It’s truly amazing that, there are so many abandon places, like hospitals, schools, train stations and many others here in New York that you can easily explore. I often ask myself why have the owners abandoned this place? Why didn’t they demolish it? Or maybe they left it untouched and so people like myself and other photographers and urban explorers can explore and capture whatever memories that was left behind.
