We stumbled upon some cool machinery in a couple abandoned hospitals over the weekend.

Yesterday I posted a restaurant photo from this abandoned stadium. This one was shot from a catwalk next to the Jumbotron. You may even be able to find +Brian Matiash​ somewhere on the other side of the stadium.

The history of this place must be almost visiaul the events the cheering the laughter and the tears what an amazing place to shoot. In the same breath what a place to waists. So much could be done for so many with a place and space like this

Hi guys, I've added a rule: exceptionally over-processed HDR photos will be removed. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own artistic vision, but I feel like this Community should serve as an example for others. If there are photos which are very bad examples of post-processing, I don't want that to negatively influence newer photographers.

Feel free to tag me in any photos which you feel may violate this rule.
Thank you for all your contributions and for keeping this Community alive!
--Todd

There are so many abandoned schools in Detroit that there is certainly no shortage of gymnasiums.

I couldn't help but wake up a little bit early today to postprocess one photo from my Detroit trip. This is the restaurant in a well-known abandoned stadium that we hit up on Saturday. We were hoping for a killer sunset, but the dark fog helped set the mood nonetheless.

Story
Tagline
Photographer. Drummer. Business Master. Learning how to takeover the world in my downtime.
Introduction
I'm an avid photographer, soaking up everything I can possibly cram into my brain in the least amount of time. 

I especially enjoy abandoned photography. Living in the San Francisco area provides so much in the way of abandoned history, I like to capture these places using techniques such as HDR and painting with light to give viewers a chance of seeing these places as something other than "old and gross." I also enjoy concert, urban exploration, landscape, and night photography but I'm still exploring all genres.

I'm primarily going to use Google+ as my "photography social network." Since Google+ has such a nice image layout, I'm not going to bombard it with every picture I've ever taken, that's what I use Flickr for. Enjoy!
