Some of those are surreal. Very cool and sad at the same time.
Yes, and I also get some Bioshock vibes from them. Detroit was a thriving city at the time of what i think was the best American architecture, and had some great buildings from the Art Deco period that also pervades the city of Rapture.

I'm not sure exactly, but the book was from 2010. I think there were redevelopment plans for some of the buildings, but I don't know what's gone on since.

Hiking in the Lüneburg Heath in Germany can be quite spectacular. I particularly liked the Totengrund area.







Most of the heath has slowly been receding over the years and is being naturally replaced by expanding forests.

I think this was near Schierke, a small settlement in the Harz mountains, where witches dwell. You can climb on top of the stone formation and look over the tree tops.

The North Sea, on Juist, an island where cars are banned.



The Baltic Sea, in Winter.

I particularly like the heathland and the rockface.

Shierke does look like those central european forest/rocks parks I love for tramping and my photos are from one of those. Still there has to be a lot of german gothic architecture - I'm waiting for those photoes to be shown here

Also Detroit pictures are spooky, like touches of evil or something.

There's a few of them, so I put in spoiler tags to avoid monstering the page.
Excellent selection of photos there but I just know I would trigger the trap in the first photo, curse, and then immediately trigger the second trap further up :-)

There's something about modern(ish) decaying places that I find both fascinating and disconcerting at the same time.

There may also be barnacles.

There's some really nice pics going up in this thread. Kudos to all! (too lazy to thumb up everyone individually).

Wonderful thread.

I'm making a CRPG so I've been collecting some inspirational images myself:

That last one looks like some sort of multi-limbed Ent creature. It has a great 'face'.

I would have had too much fun in lackblogger's picture posts today, the first area to simply run around in, the second is like a natural jungle gym.
