slug bug ranch

slug bug ranch | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
I am currently sorting through a ton of pics following my journey along Route 66. Please bear with me if I don't comment on your streams as often as I normally would! This was one of my favourite places along the Mother Road. In an apparent tribute to the more famous Cadillac Ranch 18 miles further west, 5 VW's have been buried face down. It's not as well known as the latter so we had this all to ourselves to add more graffitti(visitors are encouraged to do so) and more importantly to take lots of photo's!

Marvel at these abandoned houses and cakes made of LEGO

Marvel at these abandoned houses and cakes made of LEGO | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it
 
These amazing abandoned houses are the work of artist Mike Doyle.

Each building can reach up to six feet in height, use up to 130,000 LEGO bricks and take approximately 600 hours to produce. And while you may think it—there are no foreign objects of either wood, glue, paint or otherwise in these constructions. Incredible.
 

 

 
If you think that’s impressive, have a look at Mr. Doyle’s latest work that is almost good enough to eat.

Rethink Toronto | Flickr | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

This Flickr group is the official photo pool for Rethink Toronto, a travel and city guide to Toronto, Canada. The site is dedicated to showing visitors and tourists a different side to the city--something that you wouldn't typically get from the standard tourist guides at bookstores and alike. The group welcomes images that show the city in all its facets, whether they are beautiful, odd, different or just plain right spectacular!

By submitting your photo to this pool, you agree to give permission for your photos to be used on our website. We showcase these photos on relevant portions of the website, and on our Photos page in a slideshow format. Of course, we will credit you and give a link to your Flickr page if we decide to use your photo. While we may have to re-crop images depending on our needs, but we will not edit your photos artistically in any other way.

Rethink Toronto is a non-commercial and not-for-profit website aimed at showing our lovely city primarily to visitors and tourists. If you have any questions or concerns, you may e-mail us at social@rethinkto.com.

Will Self: Give the freedom of the city to our urban explorers | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

At the centre of this legal circus are a group of so-called “place-hackers”, people who get their kicks from gaining access to derelict, secret or otherwise off-limits parts of the city. In recent years such “urban explorers” have become increasingly bold in challenging the official demarcation of public
