Probably one of the strangest places I have been.

This bowling alley sits vacant, nearly in the middle of nowhere. Climbing through a small entrance in back, I entered into what looked to be a fully functional bowling alley, MAYBE still in use.

Nope.

I came to find that I was creating slight foot prints in dust, and cobwebs had wrapped around the base of some chairs. However, pins still remain partly set, as if everyone left during the middle of a session of games. A small layer of dust covered the floors, chairs and bar. A bowling ball even remained in the ball return round about.

The place had such an eerie feel. Some windows had been cracked, and ceiling tiles began to fall.

Ashtrays remain sat at the bar, while the counter collects dust.

No heat left the entire place frigid, cracking the wood.

Shoes sit, tucked into cubbies, untouched and unworn. Who knows how long they may have sat here?

It’s as if nobody has set foot, or bowling shoe in here for quite some time.

  1. I’ve always been so intrigued by old abandoned structures that remain exactly how they were as if the occupants vanished! I was so excited to see the article about your beautiful work on Huffington Post and to discover this type of exploration had an official name! Its so nice to know there are other young people out there who appreciate the stories and history behind these structures and see the beauty where most see trash.Thank you for photographing these time capsules before it was too late. Now you’ve inspired me to start my exploration!
