Photo's to Inspire - Old Buildings

A few weeks ago TheNikiProject left a comment that she is inspired by "old, rundown, forgotten, falling apart, decaying buildings. Houses, barns, industrial, castles, you name it. There's just something so romantic about it.. :)" So I searched Flickr and found this amazing collection.

  6. Yay!! Thanks for doing a post about my inspirations! You found some great pics! I'm with nomadcraftsetc about the hotel being the best. I also love IMG0029 and Rustic Buildings. Good stuff!

  7. I did my senior show in collegs as a group of paintings on neglected buildings in small town "downtowns". Kind of portraits in vivid colors. There is a lot of ideas on that subject matter. Also similar to what I do with old cars. Ideas of abandonment but holding there own... Fantastic collection of photos... ! Beautiful and Inspiring... THanks!
