See This Abandoned Ohio Mall Buried in Snow

Feb 10, 2015

Heavy snow shattered the glass ceiling of an abandoned mall in Akron, Ohio, transforming an ordinary atrium into a bizarre wintry landscape.

Photojournalist Johnny Joo stumbled on the scene at Rolling Acres Mall during one of his frequent photo excursions to the area's abandoned buildings, which he regularly posts to his website. "Nature paints a soft and beautiful world into the last place you would expect to see it," he wrote on his Facebook page.
