Creepy Abandoned Swimming Pools
Somehow with it being Halloween one of my friends brought up the subject of unused or abandoned pools being weird or creepy; this was a concept I had never thought about before. So I decided to check it out and here is some stuff I found around the web.

Creepiness Factor: Sludge & Grime
“Obsolete pools are odd architectural spaces. Freshly drained, a kind of expectancy still hovers around the gleaming cavern. Then the mold sets in. Over time the space becomes a botanical experiment gone horribly wrong, a repository for the discarded, or a bleached canvas for local taggers.”
