This is a shot of the inside of this house. The floor was very rotten but if I fell through it only would have been a few inches to the dirt foundation. Of course, there’s always the problem of rattlesnakes.




  1. Like the light creeping through. Nice shot.

    Great find. Nice and creepy. Nice processing

    The first thing I noticed was the noodles hanging from the ceiling – oh wait! Those are floorboards…I love the way the far door has fallen flat.

    The light rays don't show up that well (maybe on a sunny day it would have worked better). I couldn't help but wonder whether throwing a handful of dust into the air wouldn't have accentuated the patterns really well. The light flare top center is perfect.

    Of course, it's all about the lighting!! Lovely work! Did you have to walk over floors whose condition was this bad?

    Haunting. Love the beams of sunlight.

  8. another image that really makes me uncomfortable – awesome – watch yourself with the snakes and precarious positions man – you seem to put yourself in them all the time – guess thats half the fun tho :-)

    oh man, where do you find all these busted up buildings???

  10. Ron says:

    Great subject… well done!

  11. leeroy says:

    Those light streaks are to die for. Well worth the danger!

  12. Kris says:

    Stunning shot, the light rays are really nice, but indeed, looks like shooting in there can be pretty dangerous..

  13. Andy says:

    Thanks for all the comments, folks. I guess shooting the inside of these buildings is a bit on the dangerous side. However, I figure if it's been up this long it probably won't collapse during the few minutes I'm shooting it.
    I wouldn't mind shooting with a partner though. Anyone live around the San Marcos area who wants to go exploring with me some weekend? None of my friends are photographers and the only way your going to get them up at 5:00 on a Saturday morning is if they've already been up all night. :-)
