I have always liked old abandoned places. I have seen some excellent images of abandoned places. One of my classmates from college did a portfolio on abandoned places. It was really good; I was very jealous. As I remember, none of the places in the portfolio were local. Anyway, I always have my eye out for a really cool abandoned place. The other day I stopped to check out an old abandoned building. I got some nice photos, but I wasn’t happy with the images from that day. I stopped by the building a second time. It had rained the night before. There was a huge puddle of water covering the floor. The floor was totally dry the first time I had stopped. The puddle of water created some amazing reflections. I can’t pass up photographing a good reflection, no matter where it is.
I was using my Fujifilm X100V. The X100V works really well in low light situations, like the inside of old abandoned buildings. It also has a flip out LCD screen. I was able to flip the screen out and hold the camera really low, just above the surface of the water. The low camera angle enhances the reflections. This was a really cool abandoned place. Keeping my eye out for the next one.
Tabgha Church of the Multiplication
Tabgha, Church of the Multiplication on the Sea of Galilee in Israel. This is the place where Jesus preformed the miracle of the loaves and fish. He turned a few loves of bread and a few fish into many to feed thousands of hungry people. The rock under the alter is where Jesus stood to preform the miracle. It is also where Jesus appeared for the 4th time after his resurrection. He tells Peter to take care of his sheep. So I thought it would make a good post for Easter. Happy Easter!
