These 25 #Places Are #Fascinating #Nightmares

Each day we are distracted by our own lives, too busy to notice what is going on around us. However, most people aren’t disturbed by the chaos. Instead, we only feel fear when there is utter, terrible silence. Stillness is unnerving, not chaos. That’s probably why abandoned buildings, former hotspots of humanity, are so intriguing. It’s addictive to think about the lives that passed through these doors, only to eventually move on and forget.

Life will pass all of us by in just a blink, but the legacies we build on this earth will stay behind us as a monument to our lives. That’s what each of these images are, a testament to what life used to be like for others. It’s something we can only dream about. Share these beautiful, but strange, pictures with others.
