The Old Haunt

My last shoot of 2016. I had…pretty low expectations going in here. I wasn’t even sure I’d go in. This century-plus-year-old building has been vacant for close to four decades, and that has taken a huge toll. The place is completely empty. There are

Over Troubled Water

This decades-vacant power plant was one of my last shoots of the year. I don’t know much history of the building, but the town it sits in was once a hotbed of industry, now largely desolate and abandoned. I think it’s obvious by

His Hall the Azure Dome

In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve shot. The exterior of this place is so incredibly stunning that you can’t help feel your heart break for the wasted potential as it sits and rots past

Where the Light Gets In

I’ve learned a whole lot in my humble few years shooting abandonment. About photography…and also about life in general. This hobby has given me two important takeaways that I carry with me every day: That there is always beauty to be found in

Views From a Window

A lot of exploring comes down to knowing your limits, trusting your instinct, and not being stupid. Those three things led me to realize, looking at someone else’s shots of this old carriage house from a few months ago, that I

Train in Vain

I’m annoying to road trip with. I crank the heat way too high. I pack a ton of food and throw the trash in the back seat. I need a bathroom stop every other hour because I drink too much caffeine. For

Death of the White Plague

Yet again, these aren’t exactly new photos. This was my first explore of the summer, a few months back on my second visit to this incredible place. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. There isn’t much

Gone Camping

I had a bad weekend. I lost a pet on Friday night: My 21-year-old leopard gecko, Sandy. I’ve had Sandy since she was a hatchling and I was a third grader. I’ve had to say goodbye to lots of pets over my

Where You’re Madder Than I Am: Part II

I know. A month. Summer is just crazy. I’m putting in a lot of 70 hour work weeks these days. First off: I’m moving my professional wedding work off of this blog, and will be posting it solely on my website

Where You’re Madder Than I Am: Part I

Hey. Remember me? I’m Amanda. I used to run this blog regularly before I fell off the face of the planet. I’ve had my plate full the past few months. I’ll spare you the million and one things I’ve had
