(no subject)

Saw this driving down the coast.  This is the first gas station in Goleta CA & was the scene for the filming of "The Postman Always Knocks Twice"

Loved the detail work. To bad they let it go. I would have snuck in (the fence was down in one part) but it was on a main road with lots of cars driving by :)

Old Crow Distillery, Kentucky

A couple weeks ago I finally managed to sneak into an abandoned property I'd been eyeballing for over a year. None too soon as it turns out, as it's in the process of being dismantled and sold for scrap. I seem to curse places that way.

I've begun doing some research (including a tour of another, operating distillery) to make better sense of what I saw as well as what's left, and slowly sorting & uploading my shots of the exploration. A return is planned hopefully for the near future, with my original cohorts soopageek and welfy.

In the meantime, here's a few of the decent shots I managed to get. I was having an off day, what with the heat and being overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the place. Say nothing of the fact that I'm still learning phtography, but meh...
