Urban Erosion

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Urban Erosion prompt.

One subject came to mind as soon as I started considering the prompt.

This is the abandoned grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. It has been standing empty for years and has become one of the more impressive eyesores around town. The roof was leaking badly when it was still in use so the interior could easily be in worse shape than the exterior.

A Local Eyesore

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All about buildings: Commercial buildings or store fronts.

This is the former Foodland grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

Photographed last autumn when it had been standing empty for a couple of years. It’s an even bigger eyesore at the moment as the parking lot is currently being used for storage by the construction crew ripping up the highway through the town.

Interior

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Interior.

This is part of a ward in a former small pox hospital in South East England. I documented the buildings prior to the site being cleared for redevelopment.

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.
