So I have been gone for a while…
I am back and I have been on adventures. I have started a new project, a new job, we have a new baby and a little of everything. I am also part of an awesome photo group, Shoot to Kill – Memphis, the best community of photographers I have ever been a part of.
We were able to go to the an awesome urbex trip to an old Marine Hospital and it was so amazing, here are some photos from my trip.
I have forgotten how much I love walking in to old buildings. Learning the history about them, imagining what happened there and all the people that was a part of the place.
Until next time my friends… be good and be happy.
The train station downtown, every time I have been inside it is always empty.
It is a very interesting looking place. I have never taken a train ride, I might need to add that to my list of random things to do.
Nothing too crazy this week. Just an empty abandoned building I thought it was interesting.
Let me know what you think…
I was able to go into the Sears Building in Crosstown thanks to the friendly folks at Crosstown Development Project.
This was an interesting tour. I really enjoyed it. The building opened its doors in 1927 employing about 1,000 people. On its first day of business they had almost 30,000 shoppers.
I used to work about half of block from the building and always thought that it would be so cool to go into the building but I was wrong…it was AWESOME going into the building.
The building has been empty since 1983. We got to meet Frank, the grounds keeper, he took me and my buddy Chris all the way to the 7th floor. Got some great pictures. You can find more on my facebook page.
I was able to go out with my buddy Wes and take some pictures and we stopped by the Old Tennessee Brewery Building. I wasn’t able to get in (and still want to) but I took some pictures while we were down there.
I really wish I could give you more history about this place but I don’t have it. If anyone know how I can get in to take pictures please let me know.
I will keep exploring Memphis for empty buildings and try to go in and take pictures and get the history behind them
As I drive around town I find different buildings some empty some being used. This is the side of the Raleigh Springs Mall.
Don’t know how much longer this mall will be around but it looks pretty empty.
Another random place I found around town.
The Imperial Lanes were the one of the few 24hrs bowling alleys in town. I don’t know much about it, but I do know that in order to keep score you had to do it by hand. I was open back in 1958. This building has been closed for a long time, I remember driving by it and thinking “we should go bowling there” but never did.
