A skylight in this room, within the Administration section of Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital, let in just enough light to give this space a blue glow.
I miss adventures like this. It always feels so good to be out with my camera, beneath the full moon, with good friends as you're being stalked by a pack of coyotes.

Building 253 at Hunter's Point Naval Shipyard was constructed between 1944 and 1947. It's 6 stories tall, contains a large gantry crane that was used to lift equipment into the top floor of the building.
Maintenance for periscopes and range finders for military ships was done in this building. It was also an electrical shop, used for Radiography Instrument Calibration as well as a gauge shop.

If I’m not shooting historic, abandoned locations, you can find me camping and enjoying nature.
When I began taking photos of abandoned locations eight years ago, I always assumed there'd be a return visit to these sites and my friends and I would always talk about "the next time." But over the years, I have learned that each visit should be treated as the last because these relics can wind up inaccessible or demolished very quickly.
This photo was taken during my first visit to a beautiful glass building, a machine shop, at the former Hunter's Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco back in 2006. I made a few visits over the next two years, but when the site became much more difficult to access, I never made it back to this building.

Kirkbride asylums were constructed to be self-sufficient and most campuses contained a dairy and agricultural farm, a post office, recreational facilities, water utilities and a power plant. Greystone Park Psychiatic Hospital was no exception.
This power station generated power for the entire campus, which included the main Kirbride building, which was designed to house 450 patients, nurses quarters and all other ancillary buildings.

Photographing these planes was amazing, but walking amongst the giant metal parts of these bombers beneath the moonlight was even more incredible. I would love to experience that moment over and over again...
