  1. Very true....and I tried 3 times LOL....thankfully got it the last time
  2. Thanks very much for the compliments! The bed shot was one of my faves as well. However it took 3 trips to get a decent photo :p. First time the pics that were lost started a couple shots after I took of that bed, Another time some were blurry due to a crappy tripod. It was pretty dark in that room so I always needed a tripod. Handheld and bumping up the ISO didn't fare too well.
  3. Thank you very much! I greatly appreciate the compliments
  4. Thank you! Kirkbrides are my favorite style of hospital too. Thanks Andy!
  5. This would be my 2nd fav kirkbride of those that I've seen so far and I was obsessed with seeing it. My first visit however was not the best as it was 8­F when I first got in and maybe warmed up to 19 outside but felt much colder inside. It was too cold really to focus on taking photos, too cold to really take my hands out of my gloves but necessary. I dropped my 24-70 lens on the floor fumbling around with big ass gloves on trying to switch lenses, when I got home in the wee hours of the morning the next day I was just carrying my camera (why it wasn't in the bag I don't know) and I dropped it in the driveway...with the same lens attached :(. I also lost 75 photos or so from that trip and found out later it was due to a faulty card reader when I was transferring them. So with all that I had to go back again and reshoot and one photo in particular I wanted to capture again was the sun streaming through the decorative risers on the stairway and onto the wall. Well neither of the times I went back was the sun out so I never was able to get that photo again. Last visit at least I had the newer camera as I sold the 7D a month prior AND it wasn't so freakn cold.
  6. Great photos and editing! Such awesome places over there!
  7. Thank you You're welcome and glad you enjoyed the photos too!
  8. If you make it to the east coast let me know! And yes so glad the gear didn't get ruined because I'd left the bag in the car and was just carrying the camera...and didn't have a coat!
  9. Thanks Andy. Yes so many other things to photograph here and there was a couple I didn't get into due to workers being near the first time. The second time we ran out of time as we had another 5 hour drive to go to another spot. The chapel was one of my favs as well. Glad you liked the photos as well and thanks! There was a staircase similar in style in two other buildings...not spiraled but the woodwork/spindles and newel post were the same
  10. Wow this is an awesome place! Love the photos! Yet another place I'd love to see! I'm always amazed at the places that are left abandoned overseas.
  11. Thank you very much! Glad you enjoyed the post!
