Some people find abandoned amusement parks. Others explore defunct movie palaces. Me, I found an abandoned trailer park.
And at that, it was only partially abandoned. It’s on a busy intersection, and is clearly being left to empty by attrition so the land can be sold to a developer.
The disrepair on the occupied side was almost as bad as the abandoned. I guess children will play anywhere. I know I did.
While I wandered, I noticed a guy in a Cadillac patrolling the grounds. He wasn’t bothered by my pictorial adventure.
I’m the one who should have been bothered, but I didn’t always realize what I was seeing on site. I didn’t even notice the syringes until I looked at the photos later.
I did notice the bullet holes.
Mostly, I was concentrating on shapes and colors. There were bright blocks, and shiny next to tattered.
It held an air of desolation, no different than that abandoned amusement park, but perhaps more desperate.
Never call your art lame. This took a discover, it took guts to go in alone and it took the gumption to photograph and follow through to post. This is awesome.
Heh, thanks. I do love the photos…but I still want to explore an abandoned amusement park. Surely there’s one around here somewhere.
