This is the ruined interior of a Methodist Church and community meeting house in Gary, Indiana, after many years of abandonment and neglect. A fascinating series of photographs shows a classic American town being reclaimed by nature.
These were taken by photographer David Tribby, who has a sharp eye for images that turn decay into lovely transformation. Tribby has also collected these pictures and many more into a book called Gary Indiana: A City's Ruins. Or check out his photostream on Flickr.
