Abandonment Issues - Lorton Prison
I'm continuing with my Lorton prison photos...today I thought I'd share some images I took of the building we went inside of. The door was wide open, so we couldn't resist. It was very creepy inside...thank goodness there was bright sunshine outside to provide lots of light! Otherwise, I don't know that I would've gone in there...lol. We only stayed on the upper level - there was a downstairs, but my vivid imagination would never let me go down there. The textures and peeling paint inside were amazing, and I loved how the vines had crept their way through the broken windows and were winding their way down the walls. This poor building had major abandonment issues, but my camera and I were thrilled to capture its oddly beautiful state. A lot of my images weren't lined up straight, but this was one case where I think it actually adds to the derelict mood of the photos.
