Abandoned in the midst of society, gorgeous decay...

I love abandoned buildings, and urban decay born of neglect and disuse. I found a few photo blogs that are worth checking out..

A blog about secret excursions into the Paris Metro system. Abandoned train stations, it's worth a moment of your romantic whimsy.

The second is a photo collection by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre, link and photo courtesy of the Guardian UK. It tells the story of abandoned Detroit. It's mind blowing that so many gorgeous and historic buildings, including libraries and schools, are just left to rot in the elements.
