Cracked paint and sand-filled rooms at Kolmanskop, Namibia

After years ago seeing a photograph of sand-filled rooms at a strange deserted mining town in Southern Namibia, I knew I wanted to get there one day. That dream came true. This is just one of many sand-filled rooms in Kolmanskop, Namibia. I was there for hours taking photos of lost doorways, angles, shadows, and sand. I was lost in time.
