Abandoned Yellow House in Nova Scotia

The picture of this old abandoned yellow house looks like something you would see in an old suspenseful movie like Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds."  With all the dandelions and the house being yellow (needs a good paint job), you would really have to like the color yellow to live there.  It was probably abandoned though, not because of the color yellow, but because of the economy in the area.  A lot of communities in Nova Scotia lacked opportunity for growth so when the children would grow up and leave for greener pastures, there was no one to leave the homes to; and, consequently, would end up being abandoned once the parents passed away.

Abandoned Rollercoaster, Nara Dreamland, Japan

This is just one of the roller coasters in this abandoned theme park in Japan.  This last abandoned theme park was supposed to have been demolished but yet it still stands as you can see from this old coaster luminously in the horizon.  Named the Screw Coaster, which is very befitting considering its appearance, this roller coaster has become quite rusty.  Nara Dreamland was a copy of the original Disneyland except due to money issues, they did not use the same characters but instead used less interesting characters. Another abandoned roller coaster at Nara Dreamland is the wooden roller coaster, Aska.  From the top of it, you can get a great view of the park.
