Irvine, CA. I'm back in California to take care of some stuff and figured I'd take those pictures when I saw the opportunity.

This old gas station was fixed up and used in the upcoming movie about Hank Williams. I cropped my Trailblazer out of the original pic, as it was just
too freakin' clean for the thread.

Any time I see something like that my brain screams PAINTBALL!!!!!!!!!

I just about wet myself when I pulled into the urban ops facility at Ft. Lewis. I was there to do some wiring.
I'd love to charter a group to go to Pripyat for a weeks worth of paintball (and a lifetimes worth of rads). Okay, maybe 3 days worth of paintball.

There are thousands of abandoned buildings and works all over the old Soviet.

That would definitely be El Toro then. Right off of Trabuco Canyon rd. I was stationed there in 1997.

Upon reading one of my posts you should assume that before I post I reread my posts twice and then often again after I post to check and recheck for spelling and grammatical errors. And I still miss most of them because, as it turns out, when you are home-schooled, you are only as smart as your mom.

Thought I'd try my hand at a little photography. Always wanted to do this and this thread gave me the extra push. Loaded up the family and went in search of some broken down buildings. Sorry if the size of the photos are obnoxious, haven't completely got the hang of posting pics yet...

I went to Malin Head last weekend.

It's the most northerly point in the island of Ireland & is very beautiful in a bleak way.
Whilst there I took some pictures using my camera phone. Apologies for the quality.

Camera phones are getting better and better. Heck, I usually leave my bigger, more expensive Canon at home unless I'm specifically on a photo run. The 8mp cam in my phone (my pics in this thread, for instance) gets me some *very* nice photos, and beats everything I have at home except for the EOS. Ain't that a kick?
I still love the SLRs, though. Lots more creative options.

Scooba, MS. The town isn't really dead, just the old downtown area. This'd be a great set for a post-apo flick.

I really like your work. Especially your B&W images. Just beautiful composition, use of light and that great contrast is perfect for this theme (post apocalypse). Thanks so much for sharing.
