growing in the church

Monday, August 25, 2014

We found another abandoned church to explore. This one might not have been as typical of a church as the last one, but with a giant cross like that on the stage it's undeniable what it was used as last. The church was one of the handful of buildings from that day that none of us had explored yet. Somehow it managed to slip under everyone's radar for a while. Looking at it on satellite we could tell the roof was caved in in one of the corners but I certainly didn't expect to see so much growth inside. One of my favorite things to find in abandoned building are plants growing. It's incredible to see nature taking back over, especially to this extent.
There really wasn't much in there to explore, essentially it was just one giant room. Here's one with the boys to help show the size of this place. Giant empty building or not, this was still a super great find.

  3. Great find! I love abandoned spaces, and there is something about an old abandoned church that's just so cool. I adore that perhaps you wouldn't be able to tell what this area was once used for, except for the blinding white cross seared into the brick. Amazing photos

    1. I know! If it didn't have the cross the only indication of what it was would be the church sign on the outside. I was soooo excited to see the cross!

  4. The colour is wonderful though. You always make me wish I spent more time exploring abandoned places.

  5. Looks amazing!! Even though nature is taking over, wish it was made easier and the toilet's as such get removed or something. Wonderful photography! I'm sad there's nothing like this in my town - only due to being scared you're trespassing on territory!

  9. Seems fitting to me that even an abandoned church is fostering life.

    And I have a dilema too, see. Should I rave on the colors here, or the odd beauty in all the destruction, or the sweet solitude in the midst of somewhere?

    You decide.

  10. That's kind of eerie! I really do like the overgrowth of plants and the funky mirror picture though!
