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.
