Abandoned/derelict sites

Lucky7, next time I come up to visit family, we need to hook up and go shooting in some of these places together

I've done one trip shooting around the Fisher Body and a few other places, but always wanted to go into the Train Station

Great Shots

This old house was still loaded with furniture. Of course we didnt take anything, just use them as props. Even the book was left in the house
I hope the one sitting in the chair was with you and not a ghost from the sites past.

She was the one who found the house, got approval for us to be in it from the property owners and set up the entire shoot. She just hires me to take the photos :)

Thanks! I haven't been inside the buildings in a few years. As I understand it, most of them are pretty heavily locked-down at this point. I'm not quite sure what is open these days.

St. Agnes - I hear it doesn't look so hot lately...


I think I took this one off the roof of the Wurlitzer bldg., though I can't quite remember.


Inside the same building.


An old house in Brush Park. It's since been leveled.

I guess this could qualify. I had a recent opportunity to shoot at a salvage yard. He has quite a few newer models but he also had some old stuff around.

I have been planning a couple expeditions to some other yards that have a lot of old stuff in them.

Last summer I went to the old town site of Carbon, Wyoming, which is the name sake of Carbon county. My great-great grandparents settled in Carbon after arriving from England in their early 20s to work in the local coal mines. The short of is that the town later burned down, and the Union Pacific moved the rail line further north so the town was abandoned. All that is there is today are some foundations and the cemetary, which I have some ansestors burried there.










The Carbon cemetary is what you'd think of as a "Boot Hill," as it does sit around a hill. Below is a picture of a sign at the enterance, and some of the markers were litterally piles of rocks.
