An old abandoned ballroom I photographed a month or so ago. I loved the pale pink and greens, the tilted gilded light scones. I could imagine all the parties that must have taken place here. I think part of the reason I love photographing abandoned places because I can still see remnants of what these places looked like when they were occupied and I like to capture that. We discard so many beautiful buildings without a thought of bringing them back to life or putting them to use again.
Photographed with my Fuji X-Pro 1 35mm Fujinon lens. Processed in CaptureOne, Photoshop CC 2014 using luminosity masks, Macphun Intensify and Topaz Impressions. I also want to give a plug to my friend and fellow photographer Matthew Christopher of Abandoned America. He has a book out called “Abandoned America: The Age of Consequences” and you can buy it on Amazon here . It is a gorgeous and beautifully written book and I highly recommend it. Matthew is the reason I have been able to capture such great abandoned places and his images inspire me.
