Dead Industrial-Era Ships Sink in Arctic Ice

Here is a strangely affecting set of pictures taken a few weeks ago in a ship graveyard, where once-imposing metal hulks are slowly sinking into the icy sea. Want to see more?

I love decay porn. Somewhere I have some photos of an airplane graveyard in Florida that's just awesome. WWII era plane carcasses piled up next to 70s-era jet fighters, random engine bits etc. And my wife and I have some prints hanging in our bedroom of photos of old NASA stuff that's been left out to rot. They all have "Abandon In Place" stenciled on them. Massive concrete installations, rocket fuselages and so forth.

I'm not really sure why we decided to make our bedroom so post-apocalyptic.
