Neat & Weird Places to Take Pictures

post #1 of 112
Thread Starter 
I love to take pictures in odd places (hey, not that odd - get your mind out of the gutter). North of Columbus, OH is a run down facility with trees growing through it called "Phoenix Recycling" - poetic eh?

I'll put a pic of it up when I can figure out where I stashed that card

Somewhere in my old negatives from film days are a broken down textile mill south of Greensboro, NC

So, I'd like to know where you enjoy shooting?
What's the weirdest / neatest place you've found so far?

Include any pertinent data.

I don't know if this counts but when I went to England and France I took some cool pictures. My favorite is the one of the London Eye, I went underneath the cantilevers and shot up. It made a cool focal point for the pictures and showed how it works. I'll put them up if i find my camera.

Do you have anything you can post?

For people around my area, check out: http://www.forgottenoh.com/ Full of abandoned towns and other oddities.

Cool idea for a thread!

Near where I grew up, way out in the countryside, there are several old and abandoned rail cars. I don't know their age, but when I first saw them 20 years ago, they look ancient even then.

Here's a few shots, some of these are fairly aggressive HDRs shots

Wow, that is pretty cool, If I found those as a kid I might have built something with that stuff.

Where are those rail cars? I'd make a trip down there just for those!

Woodford Co., KY. I love shooting any sort of decaying machinery, esp. in a rural setting. Old tractors in fields, old farmhouses. Speaking of which:

Is that with your 40D? I've been thinking of switching brands to Canon.
