Almost Abandoned Finland

!03abandoned_finland_photography_urbex.jpg

While this old shed/barn/garage/silo is technically not abandoned, I thought the Urban Exploration community would still appreciate seeing these bits. There is a major cleanup operation going on and I’m documenting some of it. Sadly I don’t have a proper before picture because the cleanup has been going on for a few weeks already. For some 30+ years there has hardly even been space to walk through the attic, let alone store anything useful.

Here is about four generations worth of what is now mostly rubbish; rusty farming tools, horsey stuff, surplus motorcycle parts, all under a thick layer of dush and rat poop. Some items will be saved but most of what filled the attic of the barn is to either be burned or sold as scrap metal, thousands and thousands of kilos of it. Thanks for the hoarding genes my dear ancestors.

There has not been a horse, cow or a working motorcycle in this household during my lifetime, so it’s pretty useless to keep hoarding all of this. Some items can be kept for nostalgy sake, but if I could decide, I’d get rid of almost everything. I’m happy to photograph these old things though.

Shot with the Nikon D750 and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8.

Even after that cleanup, this place has that 'urbex' feel

They kinda cute, will probably save a few just for the hell of it. The little jar on top says ”flammable”.

I had to google what those are, but yes, the bike parts will probably be sold.

Un endroit qui est certainement à dépolluer mais sans doute aussi un paradis pour les collectionneurs à la recherche d'objets rares !

A place to clean, of course, but also undoubtedly a paradise for collectors in search of rare objects!

All the real treasures have already been taken by the previous generations but there is some potential for DIY projects.

Oh my God! I´m blowing away because I saw one offf things I like the most... those carriages, they are absolutely beautiful and I think you can restore them to sell them because they must be worth a fortune, or you could to keep them because they are beautifull remeber of the past.
