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
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
