Namib Desert — Indoors
From My Modern Metropolis:
Inspired by a magazine article he read about abandoned diamond mines in Namibia,
photographer Alvaro Sanchez-Montañes wanted to learn more.
In the article he had only stumbled across one picture of Kolmanskop,
a now-ghost town in southern Namibia that had once been a rich mining village.
Online he found a treasure trove of interesting photos
and at that moment promised himself that he would one day experience the Namib desert for himself.
He would see with his very own eyes how the desert sands had reclaimed their space.
Left at the mercy of the Namib desert,
the winds had filled the rooms of the deserted buildings with sand.
The diamond village that had once been thriving was now more like a surreal dream.

I love the little hopper mouse and lizard tracks in the sand!
