Abandoned Buildings | San Carlos | Sonora | Mexico

For some strange reason, I have always been intrigued by abandoned buildings, I feel the need to explore and photograph them.  I find them in almost every area I travel in. These two buildings are on the outskirts of San Carlos, near the Pilar Condominiums. 

This one sits up on a hill, accessible by a road that has been deteriorating for decades. 


The views from the building are beautiful.


This may have been a sales office for a failed condo site or something, since neither of these buildings seem as if they had been a house.

This one close by looks like a small house, but surrounded by bushes - with thorns! 

The next photo shows a shopping center outside of town.  There are For Rent signs in most of the units and there may be one shop open.
This is on the road into town, and apparently, we are still welcome there.
We are welcome here also, but there's no driveway - just a fence.

The next photo is an apartment building not too far from the marina in town.  I'm not sure what happened to it, but I do like the cactus growing on the roof - see the closeup in the following photo.

I'm not sure what happened to the supermarket, which was close to the apartment building.  I didn't check to see if the pay phone still works - they certainly are rare.

This last photo is the back side of the apartment building.  There is a pile of building material that has been pulled out of the building now.  I don't know if they are going to tear it down or try to rebuild.  Again, cactus growing on the roof.
