Inside The Roundhouse
Photographing abandoned places could perhaps be said as capturing a fragment of ones own personality as well as the viewers who admire and connects to such genre.
Being able to communicate visually ones point of view to another with such interest and enthusiasm is an art in itself especially when your subject matter is about decrepit, decaying and abandonment it's much different and more challenging then photographing beautiful landscapes but being able to accomplish this with just natural lighting and without any fancy effects makes it most unique and rewarding.
This monochrome image was taken at the Spencer Shops in North Carolina in the early 1980's inside the now restored roundhouse, the natural light coming from the upper windows sheds it as needed to give it the necessary mood that I was wanting to convey while the exposed post and beams of the structure along with the old locomotives being stored adds the theme.
