Photo: "Seattle"

Taken during a ferry ride into Seattle from Bainbridge Island, during my trip up to visit friends at the start of 2015. 

We specifically chose this ferry ride because it occurred right at sunset. By the time we hit Seattle, it was blue hour, my favorite time of day to shoot. It was cold, the water was choppy and I was losing light quickly, so this was the only useable image I snagged of the city.

Tunnel junction inside a Titan I ICBM Missile site in California. 

Wandering through this pitch dark space was incredibly surreal, but it also allowed me to take a "blank canvas" and create the scene I envisioned by using light. 

(Lit with a single LED panel off camera right as well as a flashlight to brighten the end of the tunnel on the left)

As I was packing up to leave the Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital in New York last spring, I realized I hadn't gotten a shot of this collapsed room, though I had walked right past it earlier in the day. I rushed down a few floors and set up just after the sun set behind the hill and light begun to turn soft.

It's not often I bracket my shots, but I made the decision to quickly snap 3 images of varying exposure, unsure if I would ever edit them together in a composite. Tonight, I finally blended all the images together to help balance the exposure for the bright windows, the room and also the dark collapse.

I remembered seeing this gorgeous room on my very brief first visit to Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital many years ago, but I didn't find the time to photograph it. During my trip last Spring, I made it a priority to find it and photograph it. 

This room did not contain any built in closets so one could speculate that this room was intended to hold multiple patient beds and house more than one patient.
