abandonedography:

There’s something particularly eerie about an abandoned shopping mall. Perhaps it’s the stark contrast from its intended purpose: to see such a sterile place once designed to entice throngs of shoppers into its doors, now so completely devoid of any human life, dilapidated and darkened with time. It’s basically the very definition of post-apocalyptic. But in the case of the (now ironically named) New World shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, abandonment by humans doesn’t equate with lifelessness. The mall, which reportedly caught fire in 1999 (rumored to be arson by a competitor), has since flooded with several feet of water and become a paradise for koi and catfish.

As seen in these photos from chef / travel writer Jesse Rockwell, the resulting “urban aquarium” is at once delightful and surreal. Rockwell writes on his travel, photography, and food blog A Taste of The Road that someone deliberately introduced the fish (to probably reduce mosquitoes) into the vacant mall, but that locals in Bangkok’s old town “discourage people from visiting it.” He says he had to wait for a policeman to leave before entering, which makes his resulting images all the more breathtaking. (via The Verge)

Deep End

It don’t make sense to love or fear her cause you’ll always look better in your own mirror

It don’t take much to call me out dear cause all those secret words I’ll hear so much clearer

It’s not enough for you to stay longer cause you’ll soon you’ll ride back home with someone much stronger

There’s so much worship on these hands; sober. For each recurring time they send us home; loners.

But the deep end is where we go before things start to go our way. and the good lord has said be done and we thank him he did every day.

I’ll try to keep up with your two cold hands and remember that I’m nothing but a new old man who made you feel a thing or two that one day when life was just a story that we read all day. when life was just a light that we kept on always.
