20 Truly Stunning Shots of Abandoned Places

There are places out there in the world which human beings abandoned long ago, leaving nature to reclaim them in their entirety. They often make for a sight that is both frightening and fascinating. They allow us to glimpse a landscape of the future — when humanity has left or ceased to be. The Instagram user itsabandoned offers many such images that help us to think about the future of our world.

We here at That One Guy With Glasses don’t want to ignore the seriousness of this problem, but above all, we want to share with you the sheer mysterious beauty of these places. Take a look — we think you’ll agree. Just stunning!
