Urban decay is all around us, I don't think there is a country in the world that doesn't have some kind of urban decay. It's a sad fact of life.
However, we can try to find the beauty within the destruction. Sometimes the old saying holds true: Beauty is more than skin deep.
In this round-up I have gathered some images of urban decay that incorporate still life. I have chosen these photographs to invoke memories... albeit not your own memories – if you really get your imagination going with these images, the whole experience can be quite sad and moving.
