Monday June 26th: Abandoned Places


Detritus found at the rifle range while target shooting.

My degree is in documentary photography which I focused
(pun) on abandoned buildings for my thesis. I always loved
the mysterious and evocative items left behind in abandoned
places.....
Not the spray paint, beer cans and used condoms....those were
always tawdry new items left by more recents inhabitants.

I loved finding the objects left behind by the very last person
to actually live/work in the building. What story could they
tell? Why was this object left behind?
Flotsam thrown up by a high tide.
Unlimited stories and details could be built around these
leftover clues of the building's former life. Posted by Picasa
