Forgotten Places -Randall Whitehead

Forgotten Places -Randall Whitehead | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

This collection of images is a result of my thinking about, and looking at, the kind of forgotten places we see for only a few seconds as we speed by them on our way to the rest of our busy lives. These forlorn and often grindingly ugly urban landscapes make me think of lost moments of childhood, failed hopes, and the brutal and relentlessly transitory nature of the American landscape in general. Maybe these places are warning signs of a world yet to come. In these photographs, time moves slowly, things are in a state of partially arrested decay, frozen in time.

This is a group dedicated to the interiors of abandoned but not forgotten places. The idea of this group is to show what 's behind the boarded up window and whats over the 10 foot high fence. It's to show people the world that lies un-seen behind closed doors.

Abandoned Airfields, Airports, and Airplanes | WebUrbanist | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
Nothing lasts forever. Abandoned relics of air transport are proof of that. Unused hulking planes and enormous runways are sometimes just left and forgotten.

Urban Explorers tend to be men...which is no bad thing for us girl explorers ;) but being such a rare breed, it's always nice to meet other girls interested in UE. This group is a place for UE girls to get together to talk about our explores and experiences and a place to share our images. Let's celebrate the fact that we are female Urban Explorers....and proud of it!
