The ruins of Empire

While everybody else is posting photos of the Hurricane Ike devastation on the Texas coast, the folks at Environmental Graffiti are offering up creepy shots of this railway station in Abkhazia, northwestern Georgia, abandoned almost two decades since the collapse of the USSR. This railway was, in its prime, a busy passenger line between Abkhazia and Russia. I find these pictures both eerie and fascinating.

That looks like an amazing day trip if one were to ever go to Georgia. For some Hurricane Ike devastation in Kentucky (hey at least its not the Gulf) check out my post yesterday

very beautifull scene, it totally wasted if we don't preserve this antique building.
