Here you get 19 shots of some places I chanced to see before they were destroyed or changed irremediably. Each picture is all that remains of a place you all have lost, and you'll never see in person. At some point in the future, I will start removing one pic after another, leaving five only.

Let me know which ones should survive.

If I have to choose, it would be pics 4,5,10,12 and 14. But really, I love all of them. Can't believe they don't exist anymore, I'd really have liked to visit those places.

ok, I will take note of your thoughts :)
Perhaps they all deserve to stay... but this game is the only way to let people taste the unspeakable feeling of loss for something you never deemed so important. The places we live in, or pass by, are so often disregarded as minor aspects of our daily routines. Instead they are full of marvels, and they just need a look to make you realize it.

But why are these places going? Or have they gone already?
Did they become building sites?

Some of them are now building sites, some places have been bought by multibillionaires for their own villas and nobody else can see them, without risking his or her own life; some old, magic relics of the past are now reduced to illegal landfills or crumbling in ruins; fields covered with astounding colors will wither and sure disappear once the last remaining childless farmer is dead. Lonely mountains where you could get lost into for entire days are now swarming with tourists and ski-lifts. Sometimes I tried to capture the sight of incredible clouds in their relentless motion, sliding over our heads, before they could fall apart unnoticed.

That's very unfortunate. The world is overrun by greedy human beings...My country, Malta is a chaos of ugly apartment blocks, building sites, cranes, litter...It's horrendous. And the thing is, they won't stop. The planning authorities just keep handing out permits to everyone like candy.

A sorrow shared is a sorrow halved! It is quite the same here and in most countries I have chanced to see.
