    yeah, I can't describe the feeling I get when I see things like that.

    Like the airport near me, an old rusted plane at the far corner of the airport, I really really wanted to go to it, but I don't know how I could.

    Old train stations, derelict underground tube stations in London and abandoned parks like the one above - magical.

    absolutely... 'magical.'

    if i were nearby id definitely make an effort to go to the park. itd be so cool to see the structures removed from the enveloping environment of an amusement park village and its visitors. as a kid, i always dreamed of the sensation of being alone in a place like an amusement park - and besides staying after closing, this seems like the only way. not to mention the amazing duality of the falling-down structures with their apparent once-loved functions.

    very cool man, very cool.
