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

Another shot from an abandoned psych ward on the East Coast. I need to get back out there.

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!

First time shooting at the Sutro Baths was a success, I think.

+Mike Hunt Yeah, 75 million views for a video that was full of copyright infringement. The official video for the song is still up so what's the problem?

One of the only things left in this psychiatric hospital that hadn't been destroyed.

I used this photo as a post processing example in my new book which can be found here:

Basic Information
Photographer. Drummer. Business Master. Learning how to takeover the world in my downtime.
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!
