Deserted in the Desert: 11 Photographs of Abandoned Places
Abandoned places like these might remind you of how the desert got its name. Photographer Ed Freeman takes pictures of deserted buildings in the small towns and deserts of Southern California as part of one of his series.

But, even though these places are mere remains of failed businesses, they still stand as a testament to the hard work and hope of their former owners.
