This is one of my favorite images of the year because of the color, light and textures. Someone told me once that the medium of photographers is not film or digital sensors, but rather shadows. This photo is evidence of that.
I love that the administration building–almost 100 years old now–still carries the original name.
One of the generators, weeks before it was taken apart to be shipped to another power plant somewhere else.
One of the former sanitorium common rooms. Its interior is at the end of one of the wards and is lined with glass brick.
The warped floors caught my eye in this room too–a symptom of turning off heat and not patching a leaking roof in the midwest.
An abandoned news stand between the concourse and ticket booths. This is one of my favorite pictures from the 2000s.
An employee lunchroom with every door and window covered in vented steel.
Lessons from the day.
Kodak Tri-X 400, Leica M7. Serious enough to write across the side of the tank, but not serious enough to have a sign made.
