I really love exploring abandoned or ruined buildings. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something thrilling about feeling like you’ve rediscovered a place left behind long ago. That’s probably why I’m really interested in this post I found on the interwebnets today: Compelling Photos Document the Contents of Abandoned Suitcases from a 125-Year-Old Psychiatric Center.

A photographer, Jon Crispin,  has taken amazing photos of the contents of old suitcases left abandoned when a 125 year old insane anylum closed up. A couple of the photos (All photos shown here are by Jon Crispin) are here so you can get an idea of this fantastically creative project. Please go to the project’s website Willard Suitcases for the whole collection.

He’s also on WordPress, so give him a follow!

At the same time, we’re demanding more style from our cranium speakers, making them a reflection of our style more than ever now, not just utilitarian electronics-company add-ons.
