There’s something so interesting about how nature leaves it’s own unique visual impression on what we have built, and left behind. Time consumes our forgotten structures in incredible, beautifully intricate ways. In fact, one of the things I notice most when exploring abandoned places are these intricate textures created by nature. Each one unique, dependent partially on what it is we have left behind, where, and how we have left it. We have a huge impact on something that we don’t control. While some might look at this as just mold and destruction, I think there’s something more that can be said about it. Nature and time create their own art through a beautifully dark destruction, while introducing the bright of new life. It’s such a beautiful contrast.
I wanted to share part of a project I have been working on, capturing some of my favorite textures found as I explore places across the country. There’s not much more I have to say about it. I want to let the naturally created beauty speak for itself.
