2012, Day 155 - It's your funeral

The more time that passes the greater the detail of the graffiti in one of my favorite urban exploration spots.  It grows every time I return more vibrant that before like a field in spring as the flowers begin to bloom except that this is born of neglect and human ingenuity.

Yesterday I went after two photo walks with Brian Matiash, Nicole Young, Karen Hutton, Jacob Lucas, Katelyn McCallum, Ryan Wilson, Brian Bonham, Ricardo Lagos, Lars Gustafson, and others I am sure I am forgetting.  Although we had been out shoot for hours this kind of location gives you a second wind.  As you explore (or become reacquainted) the possibilities unfold in front of you and being so spoiled for choice you almost have to stop and catch your breath before planning your plan of attack.  So we explored this burnt out warehouse for about an hour, pressuring each other into modeling, plotting photo bombs and just plain having a good time.  Sometimes it is good to be reminded not to take ourselves too seriously and just have fun!
