Abandoned

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.
