Amazing Pictures Of Abandoned Mall Filled With Snow

Local photographer Johnny Joo knew a good opportunity when he saw one. The ruins of the abandoned Rolling Acres mall in Akron, Ohio provided for some excellent examples of “ruin porn.”

Hopefully not the type of “porn” you were thinking of.

The mall ruins were made all the more fascinating with snow piling up through the gaping holes in the roof. The mall closed in 2008 and Mother Nature quickly decided to reclaim the property. Sadly America’s indoor shopping malls are going the way of Blockbuster Video and Borders Books. The gang from The Walking Dead would feel right at home here as the mall itself looks and feels like the building equivalent of a zombie.
