What the world would look like without people

OK so the title is a bit of a lie because we can never what the world would look like without people, they’d be no people to look at the world and go “hmm so that’s what the world would look like without people, neat.” Well at least that’s what I would probably say if I was in a position to see such a thing somehow.

Oh and of course, in case anyone is panicking, people haven’t actually disappeared from the world. As a whole that is. People still exist and populate the world. Don’t worry. You are not alone. You’re not the last one left. If you were though it would mean the title is a lie still for as long as you exist.

With the lies of the title out-of-the-way, earlier I was looking through the news online when I came across this. An article in an online newspaper of a bunch of photographs of places that people have abandoned and nature has reclaimed over the years.

I love stuff like this, photos of long forgotten and abandoned places, it has that post-apocalyptic feel and shows what would happen to all our lovely buildings should humanity just die off.

It’s eerily beautiful how nature just moves right back in and reclaims it all if we aren’t there to push back against it. There’s probably some symbolism about the constant fight or struggle between man and nature there but I’m too engrossed in the pretty pictures.

It all just looks so peaceful. No worries about all the stresses and pressure of modern life, none of the persistent noises of cars, people, and every other bit of technology that we can’t escape. Just peaceful.

If I ever had the chance I would love to go exploring around places like that. Maybe take a book and spend a relaxing afternoon there.

Anyway just thought I would share a link to the news article so that you can check out the photographs for yourself because they really are quite something.
