A Photo A Day [Day 231]


I committed a crime today for my photography project. It's true. Whereas before I had always been a perfectly law-abiding citizen (with the exception of enough speeding violations to land me in traffic school before the age of 18) this project has turned me into a criminal! Today I spotted an abandoned, run-down house out in the country and trespassed all over the property in an attempt to get cool photos. This place had it all: shattered windows, peeling paint, collapsed walls, "keep out" scrawled on the walls, and even a creepy basement trap door, which was eerily wide open when we got there.

I have many more photos from today to sift through and edit so you'll probably be seeing some of those later in the week. Assuming the police don't track me down before then.

Be a criminal more often! I can't wait to see more of these pictures. It reminds me of pictures I've seen from the Six Flags in NOLA after the hurricane, and other old, broken down amusement parks & houses. It would probably spook the pants off me to actually go, but the pictures are so amazing.

I would so go to a place like that with you! I always want to do something like that but no one will go with me.
