Window to the Past: Photos of Old and Abandoned Buildings

Old and abandoned buildings have long been a favorite photo subject of mine.  I'm not alone either, as many of the old or abandoned buildings I've photographed in my travels I discovered because many others photographed them before me.  In this post I've included a few of my favorite photos of such buildings.  The buildings in this post are all old, and all of them are showing some signs of wear, but not all of them are completely abandoned.  A few of them are open to the public, and are maintained to the extent that they are safe for visitors, but they remain weathered enough that a visitor can still feel a clear link with the building's past.

For those buildings that are abandoned or privately owned, keep in mind that it is never advisable to go into these buildings or on the land to take photos.  It is usually illegal and also potentially really dangerous given their condition.  I have taken photos of such buildings from the road or from a public spot.

My Best Photos of 2016

It's that time of year again; time to go through the previous year's photos and pick out favorites. I always wait until the new year to announce my best photos, because what if I take a great photo on December 31?  This year I visited a number of filming locations during my trip to Southern California.  In the Pacific Northwest, I got to see a lot of "rural decay" as well as some beautiful coastline.  Rounded out with trips to Cape Cod and photo adventures around my hometown of Saratoga, I'd say it was another great year for photos.  Narrowing it down to just 25 favorites was as difficult a task as always, but after much deliberation, here are my personal favorites:

Cape Cod in Late Fall

I was out on Cape Cod again last month, and I have a new batch of photos to share.  It wasn't a snowy winter wonderland as it has been on some of my previous trips, but visits to new places gave me some new subjects to photograph.

Fall 2016 in Photos

Unfortunately, I didn't take as many photos this fall as I normally do, but I'm quite happy with the ones I took.  Now that December's upon us, it certainly feels like winter, so I think it's a good time to look back at the past season in photos.

I attended Saratoga's Victorian Streetwalk on December 1st for the first time in several years.  This annual event is a fun way to ring in the holiday season.
