1. This is a photo that would have gone in my DA folder for my latest novel, which I am finishing. Kind of serendipity to have it on my dash…

    Sazonov house. Built in the 1890s in Ostashevo, Chuchloma, Kostroma region of Russia.

    The history of the house is a little convoluted and obscure. Though it is commonly know as Sazonov house, there is speculation that it was not built by the wealthy merchant Sazonov, but by a man named Markov. Ropet is also credited with the design of the house, but it is not clear whether the house, which is a lot simpler than its blueprints, was built by Ropet himself or an architect that borrowed or was influenced by his ideas and aesthetic.

    Photo of the house pre-Revolution.

    Sports World - Abadoned Water Park in Izu, Japan 

    by Michaeljohngrist

    I heard of a lot of different parks like this built during the “Bubble” of economic prosperity in Japan at the end of the 80s.

    If you’ve ever wondered about the kind of casual way the weird, in-the-middle-of-nowhere resort is treated at the beginning of Spirited Away? This is that.

    Like the glazing at Rosings, methinks. ;)

  8. I so badly want to hear about the defense pros/cons of this place.

    I so badly want to go there, and I don’t really feel that way about the beautiful places I see in photos most of the time…
