Indeed.

There's another example from our own forum as well.

These abandoned places looks spooky. I wonder whether they can be rented out to studios to film movies with post-apocalyptic plot-lines.

Very sad pictures indeed. Some of them I believe are from Russia and Old soviet Era companies and factories.

PS: These locations are EXCELLENT raised to N for car and model photoshoots.
