The Lonely World of Lomo (downtown of decay)

Over the last couple of weeks I ventured through my downtown and beyond searching for perfect places to shoot with this cheap 5 dollar balda i bought. since waking up at 5 a.m. on my days off i get cabin fever in my house so the best medicine for that is Lomography so i ventured out of my house to the desolate part of my town called downtown.

As I pulled into my friend’s studio parking lot the whole place has a weird vibe to it. It’s as if the town was a thriving center probably long ago but now it feels as though the thriving life of the downtown died and a feeling of looking back being glad its gone is the main feeling the alleys and backstreets are interesting with doors and windows usually associated with more modern deco buildings are seen as a shock on buildings that look as though you could take a sledgehammer and knock them down.

Along down the rabbit hole i ventured to a burned down apartment complex which was fenced i couldn’t resist myself i broke in and took some shots after climbing out i left to work. Downtown was a grand place reduced to a slum a weird feeling not uncomfortable but hugging in a way that you feel more connected to the city than its people
