We’re sort of in
Here are some shots of the inside of the abandoned building. I’ll note that these kinds of shots are not what my skills are best suited for (at this point in my development), but I do want to give you a feel for the inside. I was also shooting super fast somewhat anxious about getting nabbed, either by the police or by whatever the large creature was that I heard scurrying about in the loft.
Here is why I didn’t venture much further in: it’s a hole in the floor:
When I peered into this hole above, I realized there was at least a 10-foot drop beneath it. I actually didn’t discover this hole until I had already wandered in a bit and realized the floor in other areas was very wobbly and unstable. I carefully crept back out and took these shots above. There is a loft that I couldn’t really get to (you can sort of see it in a few of the pictures), but wanted to. I just know there was good stuff up there (including the aforementioned large creature, which was probably just a tiny mouse sounding big). But the floor just wasn’t safe enough to cross, unfortunately.
I’ll post more pictures tomorrow of a few interesting things I found inside some of the side rooms. No pirate treasure or anything, but some shot-worthy old junk, which is always good treasure in my book.
Interesting. I’m interested in buildings because I’m an architectural engineer.

Coco, I didn’t know you were an architectural engineer. I’m glad to know that. I am fascinated with buildings… their lines and shapes and shadows… I also like to imagine what’s inside (especially an old abandoned building like this one).

I would have never imagined that it looked like this in the inside.
Love all the lines that you captured Melanie!

Thanks, Pablo. I appreciate the encouragement. I really feel out of my element with big spaces like this, since I’ve been focused more on learning macro photography, but the lines of this big structure are really fascinating.

Love the shots Melanie, I was. as you were, curious what it would look like on the inside. I am so glad that you came out unharmed as I saw that hole in the floor. It was a bit risky wasn’t it.

Great subject. Remember my motto: don’t get killed. Am having fun exploring your blog. I love to take photos, too. I appreciate hearing your voice, when you tell the stories of the pieces too. Great blog.

I like abondoned buildings. You never know what you will find. Must go exploring again, soon.
