USA Carpet City Power Plant Sept 2015

Recommended Posts

One more little surprise post from America! I was going to include this in my miscellaneous round-up thread but I liked the photos too much to shove in there amongst others.

I first visited this place near as makes no difference a year ago to the day I visited it this time through a weird coincidence, and during that year it appeared that almost nothing has changed inside other than a litle bit more graffiti. I covered the site in greater detail last year so this time I broke out my 30mm Sigma prime lens for some arty goodness.

This power plant was at one point part of a large carpet mill, and has been left abandoned for many years. In the early 2000s the chimney was demolished and the remains of the base can still be seen inside. The decay, the colours and the lighting in here are amazing, ridiculously photogenic. It is one of my favourite locations in the whole world to shoot in and I just wish it wasn't so far away.

Thanks for looking, and this really is the end of my American posts...for now.

      It's been a while since I've posted anything. I though I would share something really cool, this is the Kenosha Theater. I have a thing for old movie palaces and I could not pass this up especially since I live pretty close to it. It technically isn't abandoned since a man owns it, but he dosen't have the money to fix it so it sits in it's abandoed state. I will also add that he does give tours to anyone. That's all I have to say so enjoy the decay.
