To get as much time in, on my way home I stopped by my old summer camp. It's original location was where we used to hold cook outs and sleep overs. I remember being a kid and seeing all the old cabins, the mess hall all falling apart. I made the trek in to hopefully find them all still standing. Nope, just one building left, a couple of out houses and some relics.

I love the misty skyline shot; plus the one of the moose - but, really, they're all fantastic.

I got out the other night and it felt great to be back to my old habits. It's been too long since I got "high" last. Here's the shots I got the other night wandering around and checking out a new development going up.

Absolutely stunning!

Are you a professional photographer? I'm not sure if I've asked you that already?

Thanks again guys and no, I am not a professional photog. I have just been shooting for a long time, I started with an old 35mm slr and eventually made my way to a dslr. I currently shoot a Canon 1Ds mk 2.

I've been so busy with work and my family that I have really been neglecting my camera. I just took a weeks vacation though and headed up north to the cottage with my wife and my lil man. Taking advantage of some free time, I hit up a few abandonments that I know, one of them being probably my 2nd favourite place to shoot. I will hopefully get some more city stuff in soon

For now, enjoy the decay !

There is an old hospital up north that was closed when it merged with the larger regional centre. I had been a couple times before, but never really got the full explore in. This time I went everywhere

Then it was on to the abandoned mansion. Left behind when the builder ran out of money, leaving a giant concrete shell in the forest above a lake. Apparently he had plans to top it with a glass dome!

Then I checked in to the sanitorium to clear my lungs of TB :P According to recent updates, this place has probably another year left before she is demo'd to make way for something new. It's only been abandoned for close to 20 years!
