Artificial Owl is a captivating web site dedicated to "Abandoned Man-Made Creations." As I scrolled through the intriguing images, which are dated daily, I found myself absorbed in the stories behind the photos taken by urban explorers.

The site even has an interactive Google ‘Cities I’ve Visited’-type map of the world where you can zero in on a specific part of the planet and search for abandoned stuff. A great tool if you are planning a trip and want to see some interesting ‘un-touristy’ spots.

Artificial Owl shows us incredible images of derelict structures and includes a brief history of the site. This in turn plants the seed for you to look further into the saga if you want to see what happened at these locations. Stats for Abandoned Man-Made Creations Trending: Older & Average
