Here's What I Found While Taking Photos of Abandoned Homes

I like to consider it "capturing the present state of the past" -- the rooms remain today (for the most part) as they were in the past, the day the last person walked out the door. Behind closet doors, inside dresser drawers, on top of dressers and especially in attics or basement, you can really find some odd and freaky things in an abandoned house. It may sound odd to a person who either has never heard of photographing abandoned houses, or to someone who has never actually been inside one but there is most definitely beauty in decay.

But aside from the sounds of the city -- being at the top of a major city at night just feels good.

Paint peels, floors sag, ceilings crumble and eventually the home crumbles onto itself. Here are 10 photos of time, standing still inside long abandoned places.
