Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie


Abandoned places can be both eerie and fascinating.

This week I suggest a great site for “Urban Exploration” photography lovers. Man-made structures abandoned, ruining, usually forbidden have always attracted the most brave photographers, artists and film-makers since it’s not common to see what they can offer. It may be an abandoned hospital, an unused jail, or an old factory, as in the picture above. Urban exploration means getting absorbed into the recent past of those structures, reviving what they represented through the myriad of details still present in site.

You can see in the picture an ex-aluminum factory located just at the gates of Venice, at Fusina – Marghera.

ISO 100, f/40, 5″.

  1. I am finding the European responses to the prompt take it from ‘eerie’ into ‘fremd,’ a step beyond, vielleicht.
    Vielen Dank.
