8 Years Documenting Natural Decay of an Abandoned Church

Since 2012 I have been visiting this small Abandoned Indigenous Church to document its decline from nature.

None of the damage in this location has been done by people, this is strictly nature taking the location back.

My Spring 2020 visit showed one of the most drastic changes that I had seen over the years.

The floor has started to buckle from the middle down so each side of the church has now sunken. Also, much more roof damage and more ceiling damage with much more of the ceiling having fallen onto the floor.

It is very hard to walk on the floor now without finding a soft spot or losing your balance.

Below are photos from this years update and you can use the link below to my website to see photos from 2012, 2015, 2018, 2019 and 2020

Very interesting, thanks for sharing. Neat to see how it stays in a similar state for such a long time, but when it starts to go, it goes fast.

Wow, a friend of mine shared this with me earlier today (I think it was linked off of Reddit. I had wanted to comment then but I wasn't on my computer and too lazy to sign into the site, lol).
Anyways, I love seeing these kinds of posts - being able to compare and contrast the decay, looking for patterns within the site's inevitable entropy via nature, etc, etc. I think it's really fascinating, not to mention fairly uncommon, as it does take patience, persistence, and of course, the location actually sticking around long enough to do this!

As usual, great work!

excellent work..




Kabbalah is an undramatic tradition that requires great patience and stability. One of the reasons for this tempo is that everyone has to mature his potential gradually and thoroughly at his natural pace. In this way his life's work unfolds at the right moment in his own and the cosmos's time.

Interesting to see the gradual progression through time ... I can almost smell the decay. Great photos and videos. What's behind the green curtain?

Once again, another stellar set!

Do more of these comparison shoots if you can! They're so interesting to look through

at least it is not vandals that did this to this (as it looks like), but simply an act of god

Water damage usually. The water seeps in and slowly warps the floorboards until they buckle upwards.

Very cool photo set, it's awesome to see the progression of natural decay.
