Photographer Seph Lawless—known for his work with abandoned malls—has now turned his lens on abandoned amusement parks, which he chose to photograph at sunset or right on the cusp of a thunderstorm. The dilapidated parks, with their chipped paint and over-grown shrubbery, have an eerie intrigue. You might not want to be caught in them after dark.
You can see all of Lawless' abandoned park photos in his upcoming book, Bizarro: The World's Most Hauntingly Beautiful Abandoned Theme Parks. If you like what you see, you can follow the artist on Facebook and Twitter.
