Perhaps these only seem creepy because of the grey, grainy quality, and only seem voyeuristic when the edge of a window frame is caught in the corner of a long shot. But there’s no doubt medieval castles and topiary gardens mix the romantic and sinister like little else. And when up close they’re no more than crumbling dreamlands pruned for tourists, it’s always a bit disappointing. Still, they make great photos, as too do weirdly verdant seaside miniature golf courses. These photos are all by young architect (Mary) Katherine Spence, and were very sweetly taken on her mum’s Canon film camera dating from the year she was born.
