Abandoned Places: Churches

People come, settle, build and live their lives.

And sometimes…

People leave.

There are many reasons why…

They can’t take their churches with them.

The congregation moves on…

But the building – the structure…

That is left behind.

    Had to de-lurk and thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for posting these stunning photos of those gorgeous old churches. I’m a sucker for crumbling old buildings and arches. Also loving the geek humor, keep ’em comin’!
