“Death On The Dance Floor”: Photographer Captured Stunning Photos Of Abandoned Discos Around France

Eric Tabuchi lives and works in Paris. He photographs buildings in France that are now abandoned ruins. Once the authentic venues of their age, these buildings will one day vanish. As a set, Eric’s photographs form a map of France’s vernacular and diverse architecture – we’ll be looking at his images of abandoned petrol stations and follies after these photos of former discotheques. The names of these discos spirit you away – La Tour de Londres, Le Spinx, Memphis, Palm Beach and, of course, Paradise. So ‘let’s all have a disco’, as the England football fans sang at World Cup Italia 1990. It’s where the beautiful people go to see and be seen. Continue reading »

Lochnagar Crater Somme in France

1
It is amazing how much the humanity can change the face of the earth. Not only can it create huge craters, which look a lot like craters from meteors, they leave a big enough impact that it can be seen from space. Though this crater, caused by a massive explosion on 1 July 1916, looks large, being 90 feet deep and 300 feet across; it is nowhere big enough to be viewed for space. A common misconception is that the Great Wall of China can be seen from space. In reality, however, it is impossible. Not only is it of the same color as the earth near it, it is also not that wide. Deforestation, on the other hand, can be clearly seen from space. Also, at night, all the lights that the large cities produce are also very visible.
