Yes, there are some truly sad places around the world and some of them have been identified thanks to Google Maps.

Australian artist Damien Rudd’s Instagram is filled with screenshots taken from Google Maps. Doing quite the opposite of showing striking travel photos, Rudd highlights the most depressing places. The hilarious series has brought to light some great (and morbid) examples such as “Nasty Pond” and “Devastation Island.” His 64,000 followers can’t seem to get enough of Rudd’s quirky finds. They make you wonder how exactly these places were named. Check out some of the LOL-worthy locations below and find more on Instagram.
