  • Abandoned buildings

    by Lightpro | 24th of June, 2016

    I am fascinated with abandoned buildings. The idea of exploring the past through the walls of the forgotten building shells we have left behind has an allure to me. When I see a building that is overgrown with trees and is obviously not taken care of, I am drawn to document... More

    This is the first time my assignment image was approved on Dreamstime. It's of a city of Gifu, Japan - a prefectural capital, but not many visitors from abroad know about it, which I guess makes it underrated, since there's quite a few attractions worth a look, and one cultural... More
