Pano inside the lobby of the Jones Building

The Jones building at Central State Hospital in Georgia was constructed between 1928-1929 and was designed as a medical and surgical hospital complete with clinical lab, x-ray department and morgue. During the time, it was the only hospital in this county. 

Sadly, the Jones Building closed in 1979 and has sat vacant since.

View of the unfinished Satsop Nuclear Power Plant, now known as the Satsop Business Park, from the top of one of the cooling towers. 

Between 1975 - 1978, construction began on this plant, but the heaviest construction occurred in the early 1980's when the facility employed almost 5,000 workers. 

By 1982, construction efforts had halted and thousands of workers were laid off. Around 10 years later, all building plans were terminated and staff was reduced to a bare minimum.

In 1975, preliminary work began on this site. Between 1980-1982, construction efforts were in full swing and the site employed 5,000 workers. A few short years later, construction on the plant was terminated and hundreds of workers lost their jobs.

It's always such a challenge to explore an entire junkyard and try to capture the most interesting and appealing elements.  

Seeing how ice cream is one of my favorite things in life, there was no doubt I was going to stop to shoot this truck last night.

I'm hanging out in a hotel room in the the desert, staying cool while the world melts from the 100 degree temps outside. 

I wish I could say I've been night shooting recently, but the last time I took my camera out beneath a moon was in March, when I shot an aircraft boneyard with the two guys (Mike Hows and Joe Reed) I'm shooting with tonight at a car junkyard. 

I can't wait.

This was the last location we explored during our trip to the Southern United States last May. 

I was so ecstatic to find a mostly in-tact morgue with drawers and doors. I realize that may sound "crazy" to most people, but it's an artifact of these asylums/hospitals that is usually destroyed or full of graffiti.
