World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places

Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.

i bought one of these sweatshirts (here’s a pic of me wearing it) and the store ending up sending me two so

i’m hosting a giveaway!!!

there will be two winners:

  • first place gets the sweatshirt!!
  • second place gets a pound of candy (off of ebay) of their choice!!

of course, there’s some rules too:

  1. no giveaway blogs or sideblogs (you can reblog this as much as you want, but on your main/primary blog only)
  2. you have to be following me!! this is a giveaway for my followers, sorry.
  3. please check the measurements of the sweatshirt and make sure it will fit you. you can see them here. i can’t stress this enough since i’m chubby and it’s tight on me.
  4. contiguous usa/canada only! shipping elsewhere costs more than the sweatshirt or candy itself.

other than that, have fun and good luck!! i’ll be ending the giveaway on halloween (friday, october 31st).
