  1. I wonder if it was an antique store at one time. Such awesome pictures faye. I would love to go poking around that place.

  2. I love your abandoned pictures but do you use USM a lot?
    They look very "busy" to the eye.

  4. Hi Karp, I don't know what USM is so I probably don't use it :) What is it?

    Yes some of the photos are too "busy" and would certainly not meet DPChallenge standards. I'm not going so much for photographic perfection on this blog as much as showing people things I discover in a part of my world that impact me in some way.

    While I try to use the skills I have learned on DPC and do some experimenting on my own, I'll still post photos I know wouldn't work on DPC, just to show the subject.

    The abandoned photos I stopped beside the road and took a few shots and then had to work with what I had because its a couple hours drive from here.

    Most of my post processing on these photos consist of cropping, resizing, sharpening, and adjustments in brightness and contrast.

    With that being said, I certainly invite critiques and appreciate yours :)I don't like the close cropped Abandoned photo and plan to get back and take some more shots when I can.

    Thanks again :)

  5. Oh no, don't say this is the last exploration of this fascinating place.

    I love all the busy-ness of the photos because I find everything so interesting to look at. After all, it's what's there.

  11. Faye, great series!

    Are the photos busy? Of Course! How could they be otherwise! I have enjoyed the photographic tour and particularly like the final B&W. Great job documenting your wonderful find!

  14. I think what is so attractive about these photos is the fact that they represent "busy". :) Just look at the items someone has busily kept for whatever reason. Faye, you've captured that perfectly, and to make the photos less "busy" would lose the genuine character. Yep, I disagree.

    These photos make you want to meet the character who collected so much busy stuff. Sometimes too much post editing robs from the honesty of the story. IMHO. Nita

  15. Faye,

    Sorry for not being around to comment. I've had a really busy week, no time for the blogs or photography.

    I've missed some great shots of the buildings.
