The World’s 10 Most Amazing Abandoned

One of the things that fascinate me the most is what happens to a once-thriving location when it is abandoned and nature is allowed to take its course

The more I looked into these magical and enigmatic abandoned monstrosities, the more I felt at ease and connected to nature; this is a beautiful illustration of the earth’s recycling ability.

Hundreds of abandoned cities and structures are said to exist across the world, all of which are extremely calm and blend in with nature.

I’ve spent the last three days photographing the world’s top 40 most unusual abandoned locations.

#1 House of Sand, Kolmanskop, Namibia

Kolmanskop is a ghost town in the Namib region of southern Namibia, 10 kilometers inland from Lüderitz, according to Wikipedia. It was named after Johnny Coleman, a transport driver who during a sandstorm abandoned his ox cart on a small hill outside the settlement. I’m sure Johnny struggled with cleaning his home.
