Thailand has abundance of building projects underway, especially in the area where I live. I first ventured to this area around 17 years ago, I have lived in the area for 7 years now and the changes to this quiet sleepy town is enormous. The area is now in full construction of housing estates or Moo Ban’s as they are known in Thailand.
With the amount of new construction work going ahead and I noticed a number of started projects falling by the wayside. I started to photograph these derelict buildings on a recent tour of the town and surrounding areas and i am still on look out for more.
Why are these building project fall by the wayside? Money the companies start to build and run out of cash to complete the construction or something like that. These buildings are left and become overgrown and derelict. This is where I come in with my camera.
I call this the flower box, due to the way the foliage comes over the balcony.
These are just a small number of derelict buildings in the area.
