Derelict Doors and Drawers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Doors and Drawers.

This is part of a ward in a former small pox hospital. I documented the buildings before they were demolished and the site cleared to make way for new medical research establishments.

After doing the monochrome conversion I added some film grain, a vignette and some blurring to the corners before adding a film type border to make the shot look as old as the building.

Cee’s B & W: Things Made From Wood.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things Made From Wood.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some photos from the early 1980s. I decided to go with one photo from last summer and one from 36 years ago. Both feature some old, weathered and worn wood.

First, an interior of a ward in a former small pox hospital. I documented the hospital prior to the site being cleared in the early 1980s. The site was being developed to make way for new medical research facilities.

The remains of wood piles sticking out of the water on Colpoy’s Bay, South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Taken last year, I couldn’t take the shot this summer as the water level in the bay is up this year. Only the tips of the tallest piles are sticking out of the water at the moment.
