Hello again,

Welcome to another week of decay and abandonment. These updates come to you every week. I showcase a collection of some of the best photographs submitted to our Flickr Group, called simple, Industrial Decay. These photographs reveal locations the general public does not see. Abandoned, forgotten, hidden and sometimes long demolished Industrial facilities and wastelands. Every photographer enters knowing very well the dangers involved. These sites are dangerous.

This blog serves as a source of inspiration to photographers, urban explorers, game designers, architects and probably many other types of individuals. Here are other ways to connect with the IDN.

The Industrial Decay Network - Our Network site is now open to the Public!
Flickr Group - 7000 Members / 72,000+ Photos so far
