Old row boat in a dry and cracked river bed

Holy shit, I’ve been saying that randomly over the las month and now I know where that was from. I just thought it was a random poem from English class, but it was from holes. I haven’t seen the movie in like ten years.

American factories produced extraordinary quantities of equipment during WWII, so much that it dampened industries around the world for more than a decade. ‘Army Navy’ stores in America were still selling WWII surplus well into the ’70s, and that was primarily production over-run from

The McBarge (AKA The McDerelict) is a floating McDonald’s restaurant that was built for the 1986 World’s Fair in Vancouver. There have been proposals to turn it into a paddlewheeler or a homeless shelter, but for now it rusts away in Burrard Inlet

I was a McManager in the 90’s in Canada where most of my training took place in Vancouver, BC. The mucky mucks at HQ told us stories about that floating McD’s. If memory serves, the reason it never became operational again after Expo 86

Oh, a gossan… A gossan is the leached cap above a vein or sulfide orebody, and it is roughly the same effect as this. Acidic rain mixes with the sulfides in the ground and create a stronger acid, that then leaches away all of

Round barn outside of Cantril, Iowa. (OC)

Some background info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wickfield_Round_Barn http://villagesofvanburen.com/sites-of-interest.html?item=7 Perhaps no barn in Iowa has as colorful a history as Cantril’s famed round barn. At one time or another it was a sales pavilion, a packing plant, dormitory and, believe it or not, was raided as a “speakeasy”

The forgotten Torre Abraham Lincoln in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Circular 36-story tower remains empty and unfinished since construction was halted in 1974. Conceived as a modernist plan for the region, the tower was intended to be the first in a series of 76. Photo by Wouter Osterholt

Yeah, I guess so – but many people who do urban exploration probably have better ones. For about twenty years, I’ve lived in squats or in vehicles on squatted land. Generally, the more abandoned a place is, the longer you can stay there before

Old General Store.

this is really great, simply because I can imagine, at one point how this store was busy, bustling, and just filled to the seams with what life was like in its heyday. And it probably meant something to a good number of people. And

Spiral staircase. North Brother Island, NY.

Sure, the shape is helical, but the official term for these constructions is “spiral staircase” whereas the official term “helical staircase” refers to something else.

No, I don’t think so. It doesn’t have to be photoshopped (although it might be) but at a minimum a very long exposure was used, collecting the light put out from the boat and sky and water over a period of hours. Obviously your
