Offices inside an abandoned power plant in rural Alabama.
I visited Virginia City, Nevada for the first time earlier this year and found myself a few hundred steps from the hotel, photographing this mine beneath the moonlight on our second night there. It was magical.
There was something so mysterious about this unfinished Tennessee Valley Authority nuclear plant. Maybe it was the rebar dancing out of the concrete, the darkness that swallowed the lower floors, or the lime green grass breathing life back into this facility. Whatever it was, it brought me ecstasy.
If you've never walked through one of these abandoned time capsules and stood in the place where nobody has worked, lived or been a patient in since it shut down, it's an incredible experience that can't be parallelled.

The Hackensack Water Co opened this plant in 1882. The facility supplied drinking water to the surrounding county and remained in operation for over 100 years until the plant was abandoned in 1993.
