45 Photos That Show Where Nature Won the Battle Against Civilization

When we think of it, we’re really acting as if we want to leave our mark on this planet as much as possible. And yet, the reality is, this Earth is only temporary. With time, Mother Nature recovers its lost domains and there’s very little we can do about it.. almost nothing much that we can do about it.

Here we have a list of photos of abandoned cars, buildings, and even entire towns that are losing their battles against disappearing into their natural surroundings.
