One of the jobs I've got on at the moment is a bloke found dead in an old factory.
The factory's odd... I mean, it's not, it's like loads of places, but it's one of those abandoned places that just looks like, at the end of the working day, everyone just walked out, shut the doors, and never came back.
I like places like that. Have done since I was a kid. We used to climb in through windows, get into buildings. Nothing illegal, not really, but just...we just wanted to know what was in there. Find things, paperwork, old machines, pictures on walls, photos...clothes, boots... Almost looks like he could have been left there then. It wasn't a violent death. He's just sitting, leaning against the wall. Guess if you believe int hat sort of thing, it's where his soul abandoned his body.
Anyway, ages ago I found a website with a guy who goes about taking photos of places like that. So I thought I'd share one of my favourites.
The guy climbed up the rollercoaster, on a beautiful misty morning.
There are other shots, too, and it's...sad, I guess, because the paint was once so bright and colourful, like you'd expect an amusement park to be. But now it's all faded and rusty, but still there, just...left for nature to claim back. I imagine it's very quiet.
I'd like to go and sit up on this rollercoaster and just...be.
