The Stately Ruins Of A Methodist Church: Gary, Indiana, USA

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.

Am I the only one who thinks that this would have been a better "set" than the constructed sets used in Terminator Salvation, think of the money they could have saved; pity that it still would have sucked story wise.
