The garden includes the ruins of the ancient settlement Nymph, whose name seems to come from a classical era water lily, a temple dedicated to nymphs, located on an island in the small lake.
50 Of The Most Breathtaking Forgotten Places, Shared In The ‘Abandoned Beauties’ Facebook Group
There are not too many opportunities to feel like an adventurer in modern times. However, exploring abandoned places and finding unexpected treasures can give you that deep excitement. You may not bring anything physical to show for your endeavors, but the photos you take and the first-hand experiences make for even better souvenirs.
La “Abandoned Beauties” A Facebook page is dedicated to urban exploration (aka Urbex or UE) and shows beautiful images of abandoned places and objects. Both past and present. We have a nice selection of photos of them to share with you today, Pandas, so go ahead and scroll down into the mysterious, unexplored wilderness of Urbex. Vote for your favorite photos and, if you’ve ever researched that yourself, tell us all about it in the comments.
Very strong warning, dear Pandas: your safety is paramount. If you are planning to explore some abandoned places, you need to take the necessary precautions and be extremely careful. I know you are all very capable, but you cannot venture without the proper preparations if you want to stay safe. More on this below.
I held out my hand to photographer Dominic Sberna for some tips on how to keep our camera safe while exploring new areas, how to get the right light for photos in dark settings and understanding how essential camera angles are.
Dominic said Bored panda that camera angles are important when it comes to showing the size of a large building. “A lower angle will enhance the view, just as a high point of view would. The point of view really matters as well. Depending on what you’re aiming for in your shot, you’ll want to have a nice showcase of the scene in front of you when exploring some abandoned property,” he explained. the photographer. You will find the full interview below.
“A wide-angle lens is always a great option for any confined space, but again this depends on the look you’re aiming for and absolutely depends on the scene in front of you. If you’re in a massive industrial warehouse, you could lose some impact. to your image if you have a wide-angle lens, ” photographer Dominic said Bored Panda
“At the end of the day, just like any genre of photography and anything in life, practice is perfect. But don’t beat yourself up if your pictures aren’t ‘perfect.’ You should always try to take them for yourself. If others like them, that’s an added bonus and you’ll stay true to your creative self knowing you’ve done things for yourself, ”the photographer suggested we focus on what makes us happy instead. of trying to please absolutely everyone else.
“The best way to keep your camera safe is to always keep it attached to you. That could mean different things to different people. Generally having your camera strap around your neck is a good thing. But, if you feel more comfortable holding it, so be it. if something unexpected happens, you can move as needed, ”said Dominic.
When it comes to lighting, the built-in flash of your camera may not be enough. He said he would “always recommend” for a tripod and long exposure when shooting in dark environments.
“If you want a shot in the dark or a more illuminated subject, I would recommend using external lightning or using external light at all,” Dominic suggested. “Depending on how you go, it will depend on your favorite light source.”
He noticed that the lightning on a camera has a fairly harsh and direct light. “You will cause a lot of severe shadows and as a general rule, I would recommend staying away from the camera flash unless you definitely have to use it,” the photographer told Bored Panda.
The project “Abandoned Beauties” has enough membership on Facebook. Large 435.8k people follow the page. It’s easy to see why.
The photos are amazing and evoke a sense of mystery, adventure and the discovery of lost secrets. The photos are also covered in a heavy dose of fear, which makes us uncomfortable enough to keep an eye on.
The founder of the “Abandoned Beauties” project realizes that they credit all photographers for their work. If you notice a beautiful photo without credits, it means that the image is either part of the creative commons license or the page could not find the original photographer.
If you have questions about all of this and want to follow the photographers, but apparently can’t find the original source, try asking the page moderator or the community itself. You never know, you might find someone who knows!
One thing to remember is that, overwhelmingly, the authors of the photos do not add details about the exact locations. This is done very deliberately, to protect the places and objects from vandalism.
Keeping the places secret is a very practical approach. While a handful of city explorers visiting an abandoned ship (which is dangerous in itself) may not do much damage (especially if they don’t remove anything like souvenirs), the same can’t be said about dozens, hundreds, or maybe even. thousands of visitors.
They are located on the former Ballysaggartmore Demesne about 2.5 miles from the town of Lismore in County Waterford, Ireland. The structures were built for an Anglo-Irish landlord, Arthur Keily-Ussher no later than 1834.
Imagine if a huge flood of urban explorers ended up going to a single place. Some of them could be veterans who know how to treat the place carefully, however, others could be amateurs who damage the place willingly or accidentally.
More foot traffic means more wear and tear and that means the risk of injury increases. Someone might have weakened the floorboards in an abandoned shack or someone else may have vandalized the railing, causing a nasty fall.
There are few reminders of the power of nature as beautiful and harsh as the scenes at the abandoned village of Houtouwan, on the Shengsi archipelago right next to the Chinese mainland.
This small fishing village was only uninhabited in the early 1990s, but since then almost every building has been surrounded by some of the densest greenery you’ll ever see.
Part of being an urban explorer means keeping a lot of information secret, just sharing it with a small handful of reliable ones. community members. Posting photos is fine; shouting about where you took them is not.
The quarry closed in 1969 due to an industry downturn and after 170 years of work the site re-emerged in rubble peaks sliding into the main pit operation.
Preparation is everything when it comes to Urbex. That means getting yourself a good pair of gloves, a pair of thick shoes, and wearing a quality dust mask. When you go out, you should wear heavy clothes and maybe even some kind of helmet protect your body of any rubbish or in the case of a fall.
Before you go out do some research about the area and the specific location. Contact any local Urbex communities or any friends you know to explore after school or work. Whenever possible, consider starting your adventure with a partner or two by your side. That way, if one of you gets hurt, the other can help! And that means you’re all safely back home, ready to share your amazing photos with everyone on the internet.
Originally, the airport on that site was built in the early 20th century for the Japanese Imperial Army and was named Keton. It consisted of a 1200 m long concrete runway, gravel taxiways and about 20 equipped aircraft parking lots.
After the Soviet Union regained control of Sakhalin in 1945, Smirnykh Airport (both the village and airport were renamed in 1946 after the battalion commander who died in the battles for the liberation of the island in that area) became home to the 528th. Fighter Aviation Regiment, which performed the tasks of air defense of Sakhalin Island and its maritime zone.
In 1966, the airport was rebuilt. A new runway with a length of 2,000 m was built, which was later extended to 2,500 m, as well as reinforced concrete shelters for aircraft with a vent to taxiways.
In 1994 the combat aircraft regiment was disbanded. The aircraft was moved to Komsomolsk-on-Amur, where a stock base was equipped, but later all of them were removed. But two MiG-23s, one fighter jet and one fighter trainer, were left in hangars at the Smirnykh, where they remain to this day …

40 Architecture Examples That Look So Bad, People Just Had To Shame Them
Some buildings will absolutely captivate you with their amazing projects, ingenious architectural decisions and the power of their aesthetics. This article, however, is not about such buildings. No! See, not all buildings are the same, and the “bad guys” should be publicly embarrassed so that others don’t copy their projects. So we will focus exclusively on simple terrifying architectural decisions.
Remember to vote for your favorite photos you love to hate and be sure to follow the arrogant Facebook group if you like their stuff. They are a growing community with awesome content.
Bored Panda talked about what separates good and bad design, the need to democratize access to strange projects on private property, and also about the roles that architecture plays with an expert on Sweden’s field that has a background in urban planning. You will find our full interview with her below.

3. I Do Not Give A Damn How Well It’s Cantilevered Or How Strong The Struts Are. I Do Not Have The Kind Of Luck It Would Take To Set Foot In This House
The Swedish planning expert with Bored Panda explained to Bored Panda that while public spaces must meet safety and accessibility standards, aesthetic standards can be much more fluid for buildings. The expert spoke to Bored Panda on the condition that she remain anonymous. (Remember, just because you’re an expert at something and want to help doesn’t mean you always like fame … as opposed to a weird architecture that just asks you to look at it!)
“Most often the elements of the built environment must be in harmony with each other and with the environment. However, sometimes something more daring and ready can form an attractive contrast, “she said. However, the urban planning expert shared with Bored Panda that, in her personal opinion, our built environments should engage us, as well as stimulate our minds and senses. In fact, she believes that the ability of architecture to make us think is one of its most powerful aspects.

6. That Gives Me Anxiety
“There are circumstances when architecture has to create a sense of calm and security, yet there are cases where it’s not bad if the architecture provokes us and makes us think, ‘Why don’t I like the look of this building?’ ”
The city planner said we need to give people the freedom to express themselves the way they want when it comes to designing their private property. As long as they have the resources, almost anything is allowed, in her opinion.

9. I Might Like This If Those Were Slides
“Strange architecture comes from our innate desire to prove our uniqueness. However, not everyone who has the resources has a medium taste for aesthetics. However, if it’s for the people who live or use their private space, I mean why not? “she told Bored Panda that as long as you don’t actively harm anyone, no matter how bad your projects are, you have to be as unique as you want to be. Even if it lacks objective aesthetic standards.

However, the expert acknowledged that others in the industry may not see things the way she sees. Others, she said, believe private property should harmonize with the surroundings.
“But I don’t think we should cross that thin line where architecture becomes reserved only for the rich and for those with‘ good taste ’(whoever decides that). I’m only talking about private property here. When it comes to public space, there has to be a consensus between public and professional on the design, ”she said, as the rules for the private and public spheres are very different.

The town planning expert also had some design tips. “First, although I often advocate for unconventional-looking buildings, I do not purposely encourage provocative architecture. The building must be designed with the intention of housing and protecting society. It should create a sense of security but not be boring, ”she told Bored Panda that we need to balance between uniqueness and service, expression and community.

In addition, the expert from Sweden pointed out that accessibility, inclusiveness and empowerment should also be key features of any architectural project. “I also prefer somewhat complex but systematic projects. Minimalist and box floor plans are good in some cases when easy access is needed (e.g. hospitals) however they can be completely untrue while more complex floor plan plans are more stimulating (e.g., good for schools, in my opinion). ”

“Don’t take it personally; we’re just trying to create an atmosphere where we can all have fun and be kind.
