Given a choice between struggling to survive in the broken-down house and living in comfort beneath those fluorescents... I'd have to think about that a good while. I've worked under lights like that, and they can be pretty horrifying.Nice capture of the door. I'm really partial to door photos.
You have a way with browns and grays. Striking photos.
Linda -- I'd stick to the rundown shack before committing (or being committed to) fluorescents. Amen. The place was sadly lacking in any insulating materials whatsoever, so winters would be a tad, shall we say, frigid. Tough choice. There was a bunny in the yard though, which certainly tilts my thinking toward the shack.
Virginia -- I try! Love those earth colors--especially since we've mostly just seen white.
I'm groovin' on the door knob. Great captures! Looking forward to the next post. You've inspired me to get out and make some images (near normal temps help, too)
K -- I came across this place (and one other) while following a snowplow for a news article. I'm fortunate to live in an area filled with abandoned ruins, each of which has its own character, stories, and sense of place. I think my favorite capture was of the jet flying past at 35,000 feet. In one frame you can see the past and the future. I'm thrilled that I've inspired you to get out and shoot.
