Show us places of abandoned places. Houses will probably be the most common ones, but try to find other man-made things that were abandoned and started decaying, or that show how humans or animals are missing from. Think "ghost towns" when you search for entries :-)

Abandoned Grand Hotel, Bokor Hill Station, Cambodja. Started as a luxury resort for French colonials to get away from hectic Asian city life, the hill settlement of Bokor Hill Station was abandoned when it proved too remote and it became the scene of repeated fighting in the various wars that terrorized the country in the 20th century.
