Abandonment Issues vol. 006

With no wedding to shoot on Saturday Brandon and I decided to spend a few hours exploring. The first stop was an abandoned building on the East side that we had both been to before but neither of us had taken the time to shoot it very well.

The building is old and the floors are really bad, but the lighting isn't the best and overall it's not one of the most exciting locations. 

The building was littered with office supplies. Desks, filing cabinets, computers, computer software, etc. 

It also had a handful of arcade games. 

I would have loved to have added this to my collection of creepy antique photos but it was too far gone.

The next place we went was an abandoned bridge, the only suspension bridge in Cleveland. Unfortunately it was so over grown that it was near impossible to shoot. We had climbed it in the Winter before nature completely took over.

I'm willing to bet that not too many Clevelanders know about this abandoned road that is slowly falling into the river. It's definitely one of my favorite places to bike or walk through, especially at night because some of the street lights are still operational. This area was a popular spot for the homeless who built tents and makeshift houses along the road, although earlier this year many of them were torched. Now it appears that only a handful of people still call this stretch of road home.
