The Most Thought Provoking Abandoned Photography
I took this photograph above during my 4 months in Antarctica in 2007. Scotts Hut was a place I could not wait to see. Since it has not electricity, we had to go in the daytime, using only window lighting. To see this place preserved in time was fascinating.
As The tour boat was pulling into Alcatraz San Francisco Penitentiary, I caught a glimpse of the Welcome sign that paralyzed my thoughts for quite a few minutes. While everyone else was running off the boat to photograph to the jail cells, I could not stop looking at this intense image.
When I got off the boat, I stood in front of the welcome sign to notice all the red writing over it (Indians Welcome). I had to look this up on Google because I knew it must have some sort of significant meaning.
City Methodist Church
The abandoned City Methodist Church in Gary Indiana was the coolest place I have ever seen. Its a photographers dream with large columns and beautiful architecture that is falling apart due to its closure many years ago. The vegetation growing and the gaping holes in the ceiling are a wonderful contrast to this crumbling historic building.
