Thanks to 21.gif PetRock for getting me out of the house for this - he remembered I like shooting abandoned stuff and PM'd me about shooting together. He took me to Rancho Los Amigos, slated for demolition, and I just about drooled myself into a stupor over all the amazing abandoned structures. It was, however, also incredibly frustrating as most of it is fenced off and covered with No Trespassing notices everywhere. This was one of the only structures not fenced off.

I almost missed the message in the dirt. I like the creative composition. Almost of abstract quality.

Oddly claustrophobic. I like this- it's a more intimate look at an abandoned structure than many of the others, which simply depict the front facade. Here, we get more of a feeling for things.

Sexy Vincent left the door ajar, chased out by his fans.
