Aside from myself.. do any the members have an actual urban decay themed photoset? If so please let me know. I'd love to view them.

Here's mine

I have several decay-themed sets in fact... geographically grouped.
In fact, it's a search on the theme that actually brought me to Flickr, and most of the pix I posted are about decay themes, with more to follow.

I've just posted a new set of images that I will continue to add to. A block near my house has been scheduled for redevelopment for a number of years and the properties have been left to rot. I took some photographs in November and have just been to take some more.

I've posted a few to the group pool. The full set is here: www.flickr.com/photos/auntiep/sets/105965/
Auntie P PRO 13 years ago
Looks like there's going to be something happening on the decaying block I've been photographing. We'll just have to wait and see how the planning application goes.

I've got one set specific to a block in Chattanooga, TN - across the street from the notorious "Choo-Choo." I centered the shots (more or less) on the long-abandoned St. George Hotel.

It's right here.

Joie de Vivre PRO 13 years ago
I just put up Urban Confetti. It's urban, it's decay, but it's not the usual rundown building type of decay.

I also have a Color of Decay set, which is a bit more classic urban decay.

Most of the pictures in my set Public City could be seen as being about decay. I choose to think that they are about the use people put the city to and the erosion that therefore occurs. Erosion vs. Decay, it's a fine distinction.

It is actually the one with less urban decay than many others
Runs With Scissors PRO 13 years ago
It's not exactly urban decay per se, but there are pix that fall into the urban decay theme. It's a group dedicated to a rapidly changing New York neighborhood that has just been rezoned.
Soon our old buildings, abandoned lots and views of the East river will be built on.

Check out Killing Williamsburg.

iambigred 13 years ago
iambigred, your set is nice but could you please not flood the pool with so many images at once. It's not fair to the other users when someone has 6 pages of images in a row like that. That's just entirely too much. This is a showcase for all members not just one. It's best to spread big contributions out over a period of days. Also.. please don't submit images that look like duplicates back to back.

My Urban set
It occurs to me that I never posted all of mine.

My main one is pure urban decay.

Then I have a mixture in my Corsicana, Sad Paint and textures sets.
Montreal is a city of great beauty and charm, however like all metropolises, the old gets decrepit and destroyed unless it gets special protection for historical value. Until such time it makes for great photographic subject matter. Here is my Urban Decay set.

I have a set exploring the ruins of an old seaside hotel in Japan... the exterior shots show it's not technically urban, but I think any of the other photos could count.

I've got a set that is almost complete, here. Miami, Arizona is a modern ghost town. When the mining operations closed down, there was little to sustain it. I've never seen a community so decimated by such an economic decline in this way. The set is meant to be seen as a slideshow. When I complete about 12 more images for upload, the final images in the series complete a visual tale.
