Just an old garage

Wandering through an old neighborhood, I ran across this old garage with the front door open.

Urban Owl

I ran across a Bard Owl while walking through my neighborhood the other evening just before dusk!

10/31 Edit: It has been pointed out that the correct name is Barred Owl. :-)

Wandering around Boston

A couple of weeks ago Nonfucious and myself traveled to Boston for a few days. We didn't do any Urban Exploring, but we did wander around downtown while Geocaching and took some pictures.

PSA: If you are going to be doing any photography in Boston; apparently the use of a tripod is not allowed on the MTA. I got chased off by MTA security quite abruptly for setting my small tripod up and snapping a couple of pictures.

The Love Shack

This dilapidated old apartment building sits on the edge of a decommissioned neighborhood near the Atlanta Airport. The rest of the neighborhood has been leveled and the roads closed off.

This place looks like it was interesting a long time ago, and then fell into disrepair - long before being abandoned. The nice hardwood floors were covered with linoleum at one point. Several layers of paint are peeling from the walls, and the outside siding had even been "repaired" with roofing shingles in many spots.

This was another AUEL adventure.

Night flight over Atlanta

It's the start of fall, my favorite time of year to fly! I've been wanting to do some night flying to practice night landings and get my currency back. This weekend provided absolute perfect weather to do so.

I decided to go sightseeing over downtown, after checking some schedules to ensure there were no college/pro games going on. My only regret is that I landed before that amazing fall moon rose.

This flight also gave me the opportunity to try some night aerial photography with my Canon Digital Rebel XT.   Previous attempts to take photos from a plane at night had proven fruitless, but this camera is much more capable than my previous ones - the results came out pretty good!
