Worked on this today. Made me wonder where all the graffiti and initial carving is on the bridge.

(those are little graffiti carvings by my name there or what happens when a dark cloth "kilt" encounters a strong wind!)

Oh Lee, didn't you see the revolving cameras transmitting to the drone overhead? NASA Research is testing new variations destined for Afghanistan. I meant to warn you about defacing any of the bridge structure. Sorry.

“Are there any abandoned buildings, cars, etc in your area? I assume there is some abandonment in Cleveland but I don't know enough about the city to attempt that without a lot of research and/or a guide.”
I received a PM today from someone interested in coming to one of our gatherings. It seemed like a subject of interest to many of us so I thought I would ask the group to comment in addition to my own list. Detail and directions would be helpful.
In our back yard there is a box trailer that came to me as a boat trailer in 1964. The 2x4x8 foot box was added to haul horse manure in the late 1970s. It has pretty much sat in our field the last five years. Dorothy did some really interesting Holga 120N with the Efke IR820 aura film shots at our May gathering.
We live on the edge of my mother-in-law’s 87 acre property. She has two abandoned wooden buildings. One was a chicken coop. The other a tractor shed with an old tractor. There is also a semi trailer that was used for storage and has now pretty much rusted into a pile on the ground.
About a mile and a half from us is an abandoned Conway trucking freight hub and a circular dinner. There is a lot of fencing. I am not sure how close you can get.
This may be a stretch of the term abandoned, but I love the angles and textures, so here goes. About three miles down the road is a covered bridge. Over the years three trucks have gotten stuck under it. The state got tired of rebuilding and abandoned it to foot and horse traffic. Lee G took some interesting shots here.
Hale Farm and Village four miles away is a made up village museum of original houses, stores and church from 1830-1865. There is also a saw mill, glass blower, black smith, etc. Buildings were brought in from all over OH and set up as a small village. There is a person in costume at each building talking about that build’s function. Tripods are not allowed, but hand held camera shooters may go wild.
For the last 2-3 years I have been hiking the OH & Erie Canal with the 7x17 in a baby jogger. I’ve made about 150 contact prints, thirty of which hung in Cleveland’s History museum for 15 months. The canal goes from Cleveland to the Ohio River through Industrial waste land, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, residential, industrial and farm land. The closest point is three miles from our house. I can show you prints of what I have seen and you can decide where to go. There are many abandoned locks and structures along the way. Here is a sampling
Last gathering there was some talk about a near by abandoned paper mill. It has been razed and only the main machine is left. It is fenced in, but some times the gate is open. Dale took this picture.
About six miles west of us there is a farm field with 5-6 old cars rotting away. They appear to be related to a restoration shop on the property. I have not approached the ownership for permission.
That is what comes to my mind. Who can add some more detail or new places?
Several abandoned and frightenly still active railroad bridges with layers of shedding paint and rusted metal and graffiti. My best shots were under looking up requiring 8-10 minutes exposures using HP5.
sounds like my kinda pic. I'd love to see this.
