Urban exploration

I came across a collection of photographs of abandoned buildings, mostly in Detroit. (The Roosevelt Warehouse and Michigan Central Train Station sets are especially good.) Many of the photographs are simple snapshots of the exploration process or of notable graffiti, but several are quite striking on their own:

Trees taking root in the fourth floor

Columns and tags on the ledge of the fifteenth floor

A hole in the roof lets in sun and snow

Photos left behind in a now-demolished hotel

Goodness, this is a delicious discovery! I've had this thought before - photographing abandoned places - and so I'm delighted to see these. Many are quite good.
