All over the world there are abandoned buildings, airplanes, cars and junk just slowly rotting away. However, a good photographer can transform it, and a great photographer like an Edward Burtynski can make it a thing of beauty.

Dan Gould of PSFK tunes us in to Artificial Owl, a website devoted to "the most fascinating abandoned man-made creations," complete with google mapping. We have shown some of them on TreeHugger before, and most have become beautiful artifacts. As Dan says, "Well worth a browse to understand the magnitude of our throw-away culture." Artificial Owl
