My fascination with urban decay continues with part two of my new photo series, St. Maarten Abandoned.

These photos were all taken on the French side of the island where most of the abandoned buildings are found today. Charming buildings that were once upon a time undoubtedly beautiful jewels in the middle of the center of town, now stand here slowly deteriorating into nothingness yet still somehow maintaining their majestic stature.

In the middle of French Quarter this old home stands. A memory of times past.

Trough the trees my eyes caught this beauty. Alone it stands against rain, the harsh sun and it’s biggest enemy of all: Time.

Look out for part three of St. Maarten Abandoned.

If you know of an abandoned building on St. Maarten that should be included in this series of photographs, contact me.
