Abandoned Flour Mill exploration

Posted in Abandoned, Photography, Seattle, Street Photography, Urban Exploration with tags , , on June 11, 2013 by jennytucker


I love this type of photography. I’ve always loved exploring abandoned places, even as a young child. I like imagining the stories of people who once lived and/or worked in these spaces….the people are gone now, but can somehow their stories can still be felt in the decay. At this location (as in most abandonments), the pigeons have found solace in the absence of people. There were buckets of old flour that seemed to almost have an intoxicating effect on these pigeons. It was really interesting to observe, while I waited for the torrential downpour to stop and allow me to take other shots.
