    Thank you, these are amazing. I am fascinated by both imperiled old books and abandoned spaces, but it never occurred to me to find them at Flickr!

    I love the urban exploration pics you’ve been finding.

    Elena’s site (mentioned above) has always been a favorite of mine. My favorite shot at her site is the picture she took of the statue of Prometheus outside the Chernobyl reactor building.


    Could you think of a better relic left to a better place? Ah, if only I had to guts to try out UE myself.
