Wabi-sabi is a Japanese term. It implies a sense of beauty and reverence in items that are old, broken, uneven, and imperfect. The term also expresses a reverence to the cycle of life, and the fact that death and decay are an important part of life.

On July 18, 1969, as the world waited anxiously for Apollo 11 to land safely on the surface of the Moon, speechwriter William Safire imagined the worst case scenario as he expertly wrote this sombre memo to President Nixon’s Chief of Staff, H. R. Haldeman. Its contents: a contingency plan, in the form of a speech to be read by Nixon should astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin become stranded on the moon, never to return.

WW2 car graveyard in Belgium Once back in the U.S., soldiers who wanted their cars back were told they would have to take personal responsibility for the cost of shipping. Not a single car was retrieved. Over time, corrosion and decay have worn down the vehicles and what little remained was stolen by locals and car collectors, with dashboards and logos proving particularly popular for fixing similar old models
Many abandoned vehicles.

Old car graveyard. #photography #blackandwhite #oldcars
These abandoned cars (in Châtillon, Belgium) once belonged to American service men. After the war, they were responsible for shipping their vehicles back. Many of them could not afford to do this, so the cars were brought to a clearing in the forest, parked and left there. What an interesting place to visit...
Nature adds beauty and overcomes mess left behind . in Santo Espiritus island in the Pacific the USA army left their trucks in the ocean and the coral used it to build beauty. Abandoned cars in the Ardennes Forest belong to the American service men, after the war they were responsible for shipping their vehicles back of which they could not afford. Instead, the cars were brought up to a clearing in the forest, parked and left.

Ardennes Forest cars, Belgium - These abandoned cars once vbelonged to American service men. After the war, they were responsible for shipping their vehicles back. Many of them couldn't afford to so the cars were brought to a clearing in the forest, parked and left there. At first made me think "the walking dead".....

Abandoned Ferris Wheel - Taken by Kyle Telechan. It's from an abandoned amusement park called Lake Shawnee in West Virginia. Apparently there's some interesting (read: paranormal) history to the area, but the owner of the land sounds kinda mean/crazy. Read more here: http://www.pbase.com/kstuebin/hauntedamusementpark

Ukraine --- 10 Beautiful Places In The World That Actually Exist | #Information #Informative #Photography
“Tunnel of Love” or “The Love Tunnel” – Located in Kleven, Ukraine. This lovely train track is naturally shielded by green trees and creates a tunnel. The train on this track passes every day. The track is 3km lengthy.
This gorgeous long, leafy tunnel looks like a green dream or a scene from a film - but it can actually be found deep in the forests of Ukraine. Located near the town of Kleven, this luscious green tunnel provides passage for a private train that provides wood to a local factory. Measuring 1.8 miles long, the unusual rail route in Eastern Europe is also a popular spot for lovers' promises.
Ukraine tunnel of love. Train track in tree tunnel
The Tunnel of Love, Ukraine, is a private train passage, measuring 1.8 miles in length, and was made over many years as the passing train molded the trees’ lines. The train turned a luscious piece of woodland into a unique passageway as it traveled back and forth 3 times a day over several years.

This stunning tree tunnel is to be found in Ukraine. It is a three kilometer section of a private railway. The tunnel is called The Tunnel of Love by locals and is one of the most romantic places in the world. In spring the tunnel grows completely green, and couples come here to make a wish. It is said that if it’s true love their wish will come true. Feeling the urge? Hop on a plane to Rivne, and catch the train to Klevan. Photo by Oleg Gordienko.

Broken down office. 9/11?

What's a corner office worth? On a day like 9/11?
9/11 aftermath.... Jonathan Torgovnik returned the next morning to take this photo from the fifth-floor window of the neighboring 1 Liberty Plaza, which was also in danger of falling. He remembers: “I randomly opened the door to one of the offices, walked in, and got the picture. I remember it being so eerie, thinking of the people who might have been there when it happened, and then their not being there — and yet I felt their presence.”
Jonathan Torgovnik made this photograph on 9/12/01.

ikeafieldmouse: Alvaro Sanchez-Montanes - Indoor Desert (2010) At the end of WWII, diamond mines in Namib Desert ceased to be exploited, and Kolmanskuppe in S. Africa became a ghost town engulfed by desert sands
An image from a series of photos by Alvaro Sanchez-Montanes featuring sand covered interiors of abandoned houses in the Namib desert (Kolmanskop, Namibia). These have a wonderful sense of stillness and movement at the same time... Surreal and beautiful. This one feels like an interior beach.
