[Abandoned Dreams]…Photography by Brynne Chalmers
I came across this great Flickr stream by Brynne Chalmers of haunting, yet gorgeous photography from an abandoned Six Flags theme park in New Orleans, LA. The park was abandoned and deemed a loss after Hurricane Katrina and the only ride that was salvageable was the Batman: The Ride Rollercoaster….
I think these are amazing. Can you imagine how loaded these photos could be?…The juxtaposition of a place of happiness that is now desolate due to one of the most destructive storms in history is not lost on me with these photos. At the same time, I think this would also be an EXCELLENT location for a horror film or a zombie-esque photoshoot…the wardrobe ideas are already churning in my head. Yet again – another perfect example of beautiful chaos.
