Exploring Abandoned Industrial Buildings
Abandoned industrial buildings and sites, such as power plants and factories can be some of the best subjects to explore. Each is unique in their own way. Abandoned power plants tell the history of the town they supported, and the generating rooms are amazing. Factories can contain massive machinery that dwarfs a person standing beside them. Combine that with natural decay that happens in abandoned locations, and you have a great composition for photography. Seeing some of these massive buildings, especially with all the heavy machinery, covered in nature is one of my favorite things to photograph and explore.
Below are just a few images from abandoned industrial sites across the United States, including Arizona, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Check out the blog posts at the end of the page for more of the history of some of these unique and abandoned places.
