Dystopia. Post-apocalyptica. Themes from the-end-of-the-world have been a part of genre fiction for a long time. I’m sure it says something about us, our fascination with our own demise.
If you’ve been spending any time thinking about the inevitable zombie apocalypse – or maybe the inevitable saurian uprising, or perhaps that’s the inevitable robot rebellion, or the inevitable alien invasion, or what-have-you for inevitable eschatologies – maybe you’ll find some inspiration in this collection of images.
First, there’s these ten abandoned resorts. I certainly found them evocative and inspirational. It helps that the book I’m working on has shades of the post-apocalyptic in it.
Equally evocative is this collection of images of modern ruins. There’s some overlap with the previous list, but a lot of new and eerie sights as well.
