The Odd Beauty of Abandoned Landmarks (PHOTOS)

There’s a special kind of beauty in a man-made object being reclaimed by nature after it has been abandoned.
As these buildings and underwater attractions break down and decompose, they’re left to sit in their purgatorial state, waiting for nature to destroy them. It’s not always a beautiful occurrence.
In the photos above, it is rather beautiful to see objects that have been neglected by man, and when photographers got inside the buildings to get a better look, the result was magical.
