Can U C the beauty in abandoned and run down places?

I've always like 'lonely looking industrial areas' and desert little towns you just happen upon on the thruway. Or grand houses that no one has lived in in 50+yrs, city streets and alleys that could be rarely used or very futuristic looking but deserted, if only for that moment.

If you like that stuff, you'd love the area where I grew up. It's a real dump.

Burnt out cars, abandoned buildings, junkies and drug dealers on every corner. Just Google "Ballymun, Dublin" and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I follow "Abandoned America" on Facebook, they really get into the nitty gritty sometimes through unofficial means. I enjoy viewing abandoned/forgotten communal spaces including churches, resorts, theme parks, and theatres. Makes me think of Badu's "A.D. 2000" cool
