Late Night Adventures

I go through phases with exploring and photography. I would love to spend every night up on top of bridges and buildings, but sometimes I'll go months without doing anything of the sort. The same goes for abandoned buildings, or street photography, or anything else. I guess I get bored, or maybe it's just that my motivation shifts due to my mood. Regardless of the reason, I tend to get really into shooting one type of thing for a few weeks at a time and then for a few months I have no real interest in shooting that subject. That's what happened with climbing. So on Saturday night when I met up with Brandon we were both long overdue for some heights. 

We knew right off the bat what our first location was going to be. I have always been in love with all of Cleveland's old lift bridges, and climbing them all has been a goal of mine even before moving here.

To have such a great view of the city, and at the same time be so detached, is a beautiful feeling.

I could honestly sit up here all night.

After the bridge we drove around for a bit discussing possible climbs. We opted for a couple rooftops downtown.

Water towers are always fun.

It was nearly 4 AM by the time I got home. I was sore from ladders and stairs and pulling myself up onto ledges, still, it felt great.

  1. Hi! My names celina and I just came across your blog! You are an amazing photographer! I can stare at your photos all day. You are an inspiration to me and I hope one day I could be as good as you in the field of photography.

    You seem like a nice, friendly, talented, and down to earth person. It would be really cool to know more about you and hear from you. So what do you say, friends?

    1. Thank you so much Celina! Photography can be so much fun. You should learn all you can about your camera and take it every where with you. Never stop shooting. I've been doing photography for over ten years and I still learn new things all the time. If you ever have any questions let me know, I would be happy to help.
