Photo-op spotting

I am one of those folks who try to have a camera with them at all times. I don’t mean I carry one into the grocery store but I generally throw one into the car when I’m heading out, you know, just in case. I’m always looking for photo-ops.

This particular photo I spotted while driving in the city. My wife and I were on our way to a restaurant and I just happened to glance over at this shell of an abandoned building as I was driving by. The lines from the beam shadows caught my eye immediately and I knew it had potential for interesting shot. I had to turn around and park a couple blocks away to go investigate. My wife is quite understanding of these kind of moments but I still didn’t want to take too much time away from our day, so I worked quickly.

When I arrived at the building I immediately began to compose this shot. I just thought the shadows made for a unique look and I was there at the right time. Once I took this photo I took some other detail photos around the scene but, in the end, this composition was the winner.

    I love getting inside an abandoned building. Makes my girlfriend cringe every time.

      My wife cringes just about every time I wander off for photos, LOL.
