Abandoned Treasures in Medicine Hat, AB

I think there's a romanticism in abandoned locations. It's fascinating what gets left behind, how a building starts to decay, or how quickly a place can go from being a landmark to a ruin scattered with clues of a forgotten history. 

My fascination with these types of locations is far reaching, however few have resonated with me as much as those in my hometown of Medicine Hat, Alberta. I took my camera behind closed doors to capture these incredible spaces, and hopefully highlight the details that once made them local icons.
