Abandoned Overgrown Village (Shengshan Island/ China)

At the mouth of the Yangtze River, in the Shengsi Archipelago there's 394 islands, 18 of which are inhabitable.
The subtropical region attracts over 100,000 fishers every winter, but because of this seasonality, this old fishing village on the island of Shengshan was abandoned when the fishers chose to live and work mainland where fresh catches could be more easily transported and sold. The abandoned village now is slowly being reclaimed by nature, swallowing up buildings and roads.
