I love ruins!Have a look at these:http://www.marchandmeffre.com/detroit/index.htmlAlso, there was an amazing exhibition on Ellis Island, NY, of the immigration processing centre before it was museumised in the 90s.
I think it was Brodsky (in some interview or other) who referred to ruins as the most persistent form of architecture (or words to that effect). Ruins and art (photography/painting) were made for each other. I've often stopped the car to check out an abandoned house, such as the following:http://www.flickr.com/photos/granier/383559702/in/set-72157602966782819/http://www.flickr.com/photos/granier/2978147094/in/set-72157602966782819/http://www.flickr.com/photos/granier/2533595178/in/set-72157604590452389/http://www.flickr.com/photos/granier/4996604979/in/set-72157604636795565/
