In the part of a melody... ( third version ) Near the ledge of an ancient farmhouse the juvenile blackbird is singing with joy and this tender happiness, like a delicate breath, touches the heaven to cover the light of a fugitive feeling: you live in the silence, your hesitant motion is coming alone to find in the freedom your usual strength... Francesco Sinibaldi

Tempest Fugit arrived in Brisbane Australia in perfect condition, I don’t believe I will ever tire of scouring your photos for the small details not immediately visible. This book transports me back in time to imagine the lives of those who inhabited or spent time in these amazing buildings. It leaves a sense of sadness and the hope that they may be restored to their former glory. Here’s hoping you find your creative publisher for a 4th book!

Tempus Fugit has arrived in Canada's capital city Ottawa- my third book of yours and really love it. Beautifully presented on the inside and out. Every page is a different adventure as you take us inside places few have visited for years. That you continue to capture such remarkable beauty in neglected decrepit places is one of your many gifts as a photographer. Wishing you much success with your latest creation and beyond.

Fantastic atmospheric photographs! Each one a real work of art in terms of composition and lighting, which fire the imagination to create so many stories. It would be a real pity if these strange and beautiful buildings were allowed to continue their decline and then get demolished, to be lost forever.

I do wish you gave a little more information as to the location/country of the photograph. I do understand for safety and security you can't give an exact location, where in the world these treasures are located would be great to know. Love your work, envy you for having the opportunity to see these amazing places up close. What a thrill that would be!

How sad all this is. Plus, I don't understand why people would simply up and leave all their stuff behind. Those pictures of kitchens with plates and table settings, or the beds fully made up with bedspreads , shoes tucked under chairs waiting for somebody to wear them again--knickknacks on shelves, books all over the place. And all the undamaged religious statuary, crosses and whatnot. Isn't that stuff reclaimable? I can't imagine all the stuff that could be removed and sold from these places if money is an issue. Fancy woodwork, marble, parquet flooring, wrought iron banisters. And it just rots. How utterly sad.

Words can explain the emotion we felt just looking at the online posting of pictures. We truly took note of the one in a castle where the childs car was near by.

So beautiful and a little sad. What happened to those that once called these places home? No funds? No family to pass these properties to? Clearly yes. Think of all the structures that have returned to dust over the course of human history.

I get a deep void in my stomach with all kinds of emotions when I look at your photos. They are beautiful and haunting and they make me envious. Because I wish I could be there, taking those photos, using those spaces for my own photography. I am stuck in a small town, drowning in dirt, and I want to travel and create images as beautiful as yours. You are a brilliant photographer and I hope to one day be as good and make a living off of it. I'm so happy I found you and your website! - Angelina

Love your stuff! I am now emboldened to do a little photo-taking here in New York...where decrepitness has found a home. I particularly love the amusement parks. When I think about how lively these places were at one time and then juxtapose them with photos such as yours, I get a nostalgic but creepy feeling. Love it and keep up the good work!

I am completely fascinated with your urbex photo's. I am fascinated with history as well. I took photo's of the old crumbling barracks on Pigeon Island (St. Lucia) and Empress Josephine's childhood plantation & sugar factory (which has an old (falling apart) dam at the back (small creek flowing) in Martinique. I took them using my purple Kodak 8.1 pixel digital camera. My mother says I have an "eye" for photography. I am planning to travel extensively in about 2 years - do you have any recommendations for a budding photographer?? Again, your photo's are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing them!

I do not have the beautiful photographs to document my adventures in (not quite ) breaking and entering, but I certainly understand the forces that are in play when you make the decision to explore the unknown mysteries of what once was.. Keep up the good work

I've just now looked at the entire gallery. Image after image broke my heart. Then, to read the captions where you yourself have already seen the changes wrought by vandals or time and nature broke my heart even more. All I can say is I am thankful you're finding these ghosts and photographing them as you find them. Be careful, please. And I certainly hope that you wear a really well-made, functioning mask when you are in the midst of so many spores. You are young. Protect your lungs. Keep on photographing, please and thank you.

Truly amazing talent you have that has captured the true essence and raw beauty in the decay of the abandoned. I studied architecture in college and I can truly appreciate the art that is created by the decay. Your photos allowed me to see the beauty of these buildings even in their state of decay. I find your work extremely fascinating and oh, the mere thought of just being able to walk through and explore these places that each hold a story of their own. If only walls could talk I would love to know the stories behind each of these pieces of works.

Beautiful. So much beautiful abandoned furniture and so many once cherished belongings. An auctioneers dream some of it. Such grand and wonderful places left to rot and decay. The large villas of Italy which become too expensive to maintain get left like this and a lot of your photos remind me of a private tour I was lucky enough to be taken on in. Genova in Italy. Your photos are very evocative. I have a lot of admiration for you and those like you would have become urban explorers. I'd love the ability to do this. Amazing. Thank you for sharing your work. Its sad that these places will disappear and became unloved and unused. The stories these places must have. I feel sad about the waste. The work that must have gone into making these masterpieces is incredible. The people who lived in and worked in them.... All echos of a past that will never be told. Utterly moved.

I have always been fascinated by the beauty in decaying, desolate, abandoned buildings and landscapes they fuel many of my own shoots. I have always been a fan of Henk Van Rensburgen's work and through looking at photographers who capture such places as Detroit after the decline and Chernobyl after the disaster I stumbled upon your work and I am in awe to say the least the detail and emotion in each photograph is intense the decay extends past the furniture and the peeling walls it's the layers of dirt and dust the surrealism of time gone by and lives past on everything left to rot undisturbed. Your work is undoubtedly wonderful.

What I wonder is, is why do some of the buildings in some of these locations do not get taken down as they look too dangerous to be left the way they are.

Since I was a little girl and would travel and move (my Dad was in the Navy), I would always ask him about abandoned farm house of the midwest, abandoned Victorian house on the East Coast and the abandoned mansions of the Northeast. I have forever want to explore and see behind the No Trespassing Signs. I am jealous of your work, how amazing and wonderful while still sad such beauty is fading but you have had a chance to capture it before it is forgotten. Love your work. Bridget, Kailua Hawaii

Prachtige fotos van vergane glorie. En soms .... wat een eeuwige zonde om sommige gebouwen niet weer in ere te herstellen. Als ik sommige fotos zie moet ik aan de liefde & zielskracht denken die ooit gestoken zijn in sommige gebouwen.

Your vision and the images you have created are simply stunning. You are a true artist sir, I do not see or look at the image, I feel it, I am sucked into its beauty, its ruin, its heartache. I feel as if I am reading a story and I want to know more. I wish you joy and luck on your quest, your work is truly inspiring.

Just come across your work on MSN website. Very fascinated! You have a good eye for capturing a powerful shot, there's a sort of gothic chic feel to your work, it brings out an emotion when looking through. Yet it feels like there's a presence in your pictures. Some of them actually remind me of The Shining film. I love your work. Fan already.
wednesday 12 June 2013, 21:28 hourLaura
Oh my gosh, your photographs are amazing. I'm a sucker for old/decaying buildings myself, but I lack the skill to take good pictures which means I can only rarely enjoy them in person. But you're photos are just wonderful! Keep it up, you're going to be such a huge success!!!

Niki, Your work takes my breath away with its beauty, mystery and ability to put the viewer in the scene. It makes me want to dedicate myself to photography and my fascination with abandoned structures again. As intrigued as I am with where the shots were taken, I applaud your choice to not reveal the locations in order to protect them from looters and vandals. Don't stop doing what you're doing. Brava!
monday 6 May 2013, 0:28 hourNikki
These photos are so hauntingly beautiful and some just made me want to cry. What you have captured with the lens is the very essence of urban decay. l would like though, if all the photos could be captioned or even just a mention of their location. One of my favourites is that 'face' behind the two swing out doors. What is that? And another with three large blue pipes the words 'steam punk' immediately sprang to mind. Cannot wait to see more of your amazing artistry.
sunday 5 May 2013, 4:26 hourTerry
I too love to drive on country roads just to look for old houses, barns, farm equipment, old cemeteries, etc. In some of your pictures, the colors are just fascinating, subdued, "comforting" in a way, and it would almost be sacriligeous to move even one item. I share your passion, but you are living it ! Be blessed. My favorite, the baby carriage....

Niki ,I'm feeling so sad,amazed and curious as to why some of these amazing beautiful places are left to rot .and can only imagine the lives that were lived there..have just spent half hour going over and over your pictures and sent your site to a dozen friends ,fantastic work ,loved all Cheers Robyn in Australia

These photos are so beautiful and sad and amazing. I wish the names of the buildings were available so I could look up the history of the places you photograph.

Your photographs are dark and beautiful and sly. You should come to the desert of Southern California to see the old homestead shacks -- the other end of the spectrum from decaying chateaus.

You are truly talented and have an eye for finding these beautiful and timely scenes. I would love to step back in time to see how life was like before these structures were abandoned. Some were creepy and mysterious...I would love to learn more!!

Wonderful photos, very evocative. Got a feeling of sadness (what a shame for the people who lived here and the buildings that used to be loved), curiosity (whatever happened?!?) and even anger and injustice (all the homeless people in the world and look at these places!). Plus technically beautiful pictures. Would LOVE to get a description of where these places are, how you found them etc. Kepp up the wonderful work!
