    Default Ready to Fall

    An abandoned warehouse near the Puyallup River. It looks like a good strong wind will soon make it a scrap heap, but, it has looked like this now for more than a dozen years. I have expected it to fall for a long time now, but it still defies time.

    Very nicely captured; this one would definitely be worth going back to do in the early morning or late afternoon. Nice job!

    David - Nice job! I would really like to see you image in a bw or sepia. I think that it is well suited for said treatment.

    That's a really interesting building. I can't help feeling that the composition could be improved, by if possible walking around and exploring other angles, and possibly giving a little space between the house and the outside of the frame.

    I really like the curve of the roof line - perhaps something more could be made of that too...

    There's something really special and fascinating about abandoned places - if anyone hasn't seen this already, check out http://www.abandoned-places.com/.

    There's a photobook of this site's best images by the same author/name I was flipping through in Waterstones the other day - it's absolutely stunning. You can get it on Amazon...
