World’s Most Beautiful Abandoned Places
Italian product manager and web designer Francesco Mugnai recently added a collection of images to his blog touting some of the most beautiful images of abandoned spots and modern ruins that he’d ever seen. The images Mugnai has captured come from empty castles, shuttered power plants, and dilapidated churches around the world. From a sunken yacht in Antarctica to a forever-closed amusement park in Japan, these images all make up a sort of anti-phoenix; rather than rising as new from the ashes, these husks remain preserved in decomposition, forcing viewers to confront the strange beauty of ruination.
time periods in american history when the majority of white people were right about the racism people of color were facing and knew more about racism than the people of color that were actually facing it:
- literally never
- this has not ever happened
- the overwhelming majority white people have always been wrong about racism throughout the entirety of american history and this is still the case
