As you know as a follower of my blog I am a photographer that loves to photograph rusty and abandoned places. Recently I visited Gary, IN where there hundreds on abandoned buildings. One of the building I spent a lot of time join was the Gary Post Office. This si an image through an office window onto the main floor. What I like it that nature is reclaiming the location as you can see by a tree growing in the middle of the floor.
In addition to my big bot camera the Sony a7 II I was also shooting this past weekend with the iPhone using my favorite app Hipstamatic. This app lets you configure the camera for certain styles and then applies them to shot you take. I love it and the next three images were made using this app and doing double exposures. One particular selection in the app called Salvator actually does the double exposure thing when the camera is shot, Hope you enjoy these three images.
I spent Saturday this week in Gary, Indiana with my wife Debra and some other photographers exploring and photographing some of the abandoned building in Gary. Gary is like a ghost town. Very depressed and very sad to visit. No matter where you go there are burnt out home, buildings abandoned by their owners and empty lots where homes used to be. There are so many building that need to be torn down tat Gary can’t afford it. As photographers we can explore some of these building and find some amazing things to photograph and only dream of what these places must have looked like in they splendor. This is kind of an abstract image with a curious painting of an eye I found in the old Gary Post office.
