    Here is mine. I had actually pulled over to get directions from a street map (I was lost at the time) but my attention was caught by this pile of rubble from a demolished factory:

        My hometown used to be known as the "Textile Center of the World." Now it's more common to see the sight below, an abandoned textile mill, as production is sent overseas and the old mill villages fall into decline.

                    it's more "disrepair" than "decay"...

                        Shoe Tree

                        Took this about 5 years ago. Now I wish I would have tried some different angles. Found this tree on an Oregon state highway, filled with shoes thrown over the branches. Not sure that it is Urban Decay, but it was different.

                          Urbans fun

                          I regularly just go out and wander the city streets for fun random urnban shot's. It's one of my favourite things to do. Play some tunes from my ipod and wander the city camera in hand.
