Inside Gary Grain

Some may wonder why I call myself The Idiot Photographer, I suspect this post may clarify things a little for those people.  I mean, I’m not a brilliant photographer, but I’m also not a terrible photographer.  I am a photographer that sometimes does things people may consider idiotic for the sake of adventure.  Like entering a building such as this one.

How could I not go into this?  I mean, it has 2.25 walls, the roof is collapsing and obviously ready to cave in totally and the footing is nothing but loose bricks until you’re fully inside.  ADVENTURE! I say.

While I got a lot of little detail shots, I’m just going to share the one of the remaining control panel.  I found it a little funny since this literally the only room left to the building, the rest of it is laying in crumbled heaps of wooden beams and bricks.  There were at least 4 other much larger rooms that have nothing left rubble.  In one spot there is actually a bit of 2 walls left, but that is it.

So was this trip worth it?  You bet.  For standing gloriously intact in the middle of the room was this great slumbering beast.

        I think you are a touch paranoid. Just maybe.
