Partly Yellow

It would appear it’s October, somehow? I don’t even remember September. Anyways, here’s a set from four months ago. These empty houses are all that’s left of a small, century-old limestone mining village abandoned in the middle of nowhere. The

Such Temples as These

This is a very short, very old set of photos. Built in 1896, this beautiful Gothic Revival church operated for just shy of a century. It was shuttered in 1991 after a dwindling number of parishioners could no longer justify its use.

My Country, My Community

I don’t remember how we found this place. It was either a random stop-and-try deal, or a tip from a couple talkative policemen we met with a penchant for exploring on the DL. I knew zero going in, and I still know

In All Chaos

The last set of industrial/factory shots from my trip. Nothing too remarkable ― there wasn’t a lot to shoot. In a weird way, these buildings have almost been absorbed by the city. It’s hard to explain. The enormous ruins felt like a

Just Leave Me Standing

I’m currently backlogged by a little over 10,000 photos, so I’m a few months behind. Around 7,500 of them are from weddings, and those are obviously my priority. So this stuff is going slowly but surely. I actually liked this place. I’m

Well-Soiled Machine

In my last post, I mentioned that I got insanely sick with an awful respiratory infection after spending a few days out shooting (and so did several friends). It’s now been three weeks, and my chest cough is still killing me.

We Are All in the Gutter

I don’t like this building. It was probably something really special once upon a time, but there’s nothing left here now, and it’s incredibly depressing. It is so ruined and covered in tags and dangerous (I just missed a murder here

The House That Wills Built

I just got home from five days of exploring. And while I’m currently sick as all hell with some kind of terrible respiratory thing, I still want to share one of my favorite and most fascinating stops on the trip: This

Wreck Center

I have a sort of “If I’m in the neighborhood” list of old buildings I want to shoot. For like two years, this has been an “If I’m in the neighborhood” building. Which is stupid, because I’m in the neighborhood a lot. I’ve

The Patron Saint

This was my first time touching a camera in about five months. That’s the longest I’ve ever gone without shooting. I’m not gonna bother with side stories, but I really just needed a break. I work several jobs. I have other
