hello, i'm from belfium and i'm studying law. I don't know if you are aware of this fact : if a place (house, building, land...) is left untouched for 30 years, even if someone owns it you can have it. All you have to do is fill a paper :).

I can't help but think Chernobyl??  This is the odd set of photos I have ever seen.

Dang it's such a cool place, I am really surprised all the lovely pieces have not been pilfered.

Chernobyl would be my dream place for an urbex adventure. If you saw the new Godzilla, there is a scene showing the "nuclear waste" land, and i almost was drooling to explore it hahaha

I think...staging for a photoshoot previously to you photographing this shot? (looking at previous comments) Either way, it's a beautiful and gorgeous shot. It really picks the brain at what could have happened here.

Yes, there were many people in this house before me..

Darn. That would aggravate me a little, only because of what I feel may have been "lost" in staging. However, this is still a great photo. I sort of like the colors of the room...and style of the table set. <3

Where and why was it just "abandoned" like this?

Belgium. I don't know why, but probably there was nobody to inherit the house.

No idea.. but it's probably the same as usual: Old people with no inheritors.

The eeriest part of this is it's as if the owners just went out to the store. The coats on the rack don't even look dusty.. yet the carpet is all dirty and old. Also, that is a great dining set! Strangely, it doesn't look that dusty either.. not compared to the carpet. These pictures of abandoned places are always somber yet so interesting

Leider größtenteils von "Dekorateuren" verunstaltet :( Außerdem war nur doch der Raum einigermaßen fotogen, anscheinend wurde schon viel geklaut.

I really like this. It's blatantly obvious that it's dipilidated and empty, but at the same time it looks homey and lived-in. The color really brings out the livlieness of this photograph.
It makes you wonder what happened here. Why they left their jackets and hats and why the one chair is further out than the other three.
I'm wondering, do you have any idea what happened? This is quite bizzarre.

Well, I seriously doubt that the scene on my photo shows the reality. There were several photographers in this house before, the whole thing looked very staged to me. Still, in this case it made a good scene for a photograph (but in most cases, staging ruins a shot)

If I ignore the ripped carpet, I'd say that the owners just stepped out.

Very eerie, as if they just got up, left, and never came back. Did these people really just leave everything behind? It's one of the things that always stands out in these pictures of yours.

The rest of the house was mostly vandalized or empty.

That's too bad....I just can't understand why people feel the need to vandalize locations. Glad it wasn't because you got caught.

It's eerie how the coats and hats are still hung on the rack, as though someone might walk through that door any minute...
