    Hey guys and gals, LifeIn35mm here!

    Ive recently stared shooting 35mm film after taking a high school film class (have been shooting for about 1.5 months now). I really love taking pictures of urban decay. I use a Canon ae1 that I got off of ebay for $40. Here are some of the pictures I have taken, please let me know what you guys think. I mostly shoot black and white but I develop that at school so I do not get it scanned. I hope that there are a few others here that like urban decay also. Thanks!

    A welcome to APUG from the Left Coast of Canada (Burnaby, BC - at the edge of the rainforest). Keep up the good work!
    Some Nikons (F6, F5x2, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    Welcome to APUG. I'm drawn to similar subject matter. A suggestion I would give is to get closer and isolate what you want us see. With the green and red pick up, the image might be more interesting if all I see is the transion from green to red. How important is the other stuff? We each shoot differently and I try to have no ambiguity about my subject matter. If something is not important for my composition, it doesn't get included. Get closer, keep releasing the shutter and keep posting images. Again, welcome to APUG. Bill Barber

    They have potential, I like them.
    Keep it simple, uncluttered shots are usually stronger.

    The highway shot feels a bit rushed with the crooked horizon, and the gas station (?) one could benefit from a bit more exposure.

    Also, they make sense as a set, especially the ones involving the abandoned cars or gas pumps.
    Even if a bit cliched, you could make a nice gallery/exhibition on the subject, if you keep shooting that subject matter.
