Abandonment Issues vol. 007

After a night of climbing buildings and bridges Brandon and I, along with Kaylah, somehow managed to wake up early and explore some of the rougher areas of the city. We explored four different apartment buildings. A couple of them were fairly large, but unfortunately none of them had much left behind. I had fun, I always do, but I was off my game. I didn't take many photos and most of what I shot I wasn't very happy with. It was still a great morning of exploring.

The first building was in bad shape but didn't yield any usable photos, probably because my coffee hadn't kicked in yet. The second building was a high rise apartment complex. It wasn't very old and aside from one apartment, it really didn't have too much left in it. The view from the roof was great though. 

The rooms facing South were in a much further state of decay than the rooms facing North.

This apartment was absolutely full of stuff. These rooms were small and yet whoever lived here had amassed an overwhelming amount of junk. Most of the floor was covered in at least a foot of clothes.

I snapped a quick photo of the outside of the imposing structure as we were leaving. 

The next spot was one that Kaylah had found. The outside of the building was breath taking. It was truly in a state of ruin. As beautiful as the architecture was there is no saving this relic. One entire section of the building had already collapsed. 

The inside was a lot like the rest of the buildings that we had been in that day, empty.

After that building we took advantage of the neighborhood and walked over to one of the other abandoned apartments that were all over the area. This building had more in than the first three but I still didn't get very many photos. I was more interested in exterior photos that day.

We drove around a little bit longer but didn't find anything else that we wanted to explore and I was hungry and needed to get some work done so we called it a day.
