ABANDONED VILLAGE

This Village Shows What Happens When Humans Disappear, And It’s Hauntingly Beautiful

I came across this publication put out by VIRALNOVA, and wanted to forward it onto you.  It’s amazing what we haven’t seen or heard of before….that’s why it’s fabulous that we can receive these wonderful posts by others……

In China’s Yangtze River, the Shengsi Archipelago is a popular tourist destination for its subtropical climate. It’s made up of 400 islands, but only 18 are habitable. One of those is hiding a stunning secret.

Photographer Zhou Jie, who goes by the name Jane Green online, took some haunting pictures of an abandoned fishing village on one of the islands. Uninhabited, it’s slowly being overgrown with ivy and other native plants. This makes it look like the buildings have sprung up from the Earth.

The buildings here have all been overgrown, giving them a ghostly appearance.

The homes themselves are relics of a bygone era. Some cling to a few personal touches, like the decorative border on this roof.

No one knows why this village was abandoned, but it appears to have been empty for quite some time. It gives us a glimpse of what a human habitat might look like after we’re gone and mother nature is left to reclaim the land. Abandoned places often carry with them a sense of uneasiness, but this sleepy town is completely tranquil.

Nature will soon reclaim every remnant of human life in this place.

That being said, it’s still pretty easy to imagine people living here long ago.

This village is certainly off the beaten path. Some people online have even disputed its exact location, but maybe that’s for the best. Without too many tourists tramping through it, this peaceful slice of humanless space can remain hidden and undisturbed.

You can see more photography by Jane Green on her Douban page.


Happy adventures!  Until next time……Judy
