It started as a sort of joke between a few of us just mentioning the grim places and uploading the photos as a change from the picture perfect shots. I started putting 'Grim Place' in the title to add more interest to those browsing Google Earth. Then it progressed to the 'Grim' tag and finally I created the Group and invited a few users who had posted similar shots.

Once you join the group you simply open any photo in your gallery and under Photo stats you will see Groups [Add/Edit] click on this and choose 'Grim Places' So just keep uploading into your own gallery.

I remember going to Owlerton Stadium to watch the stock car racing and seeing some pretty grim places on the way - it may be a start for you!
