Challenge: Stranger In A Strange Land II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon

So this is actually a side track to our last day of geocaching on summer vacation. There is a local Howard Johnson's hotel that has been abandoned for years now. The place is just a gutted mess. And somewhere in there is a geocache (my gps was failing me inside and I couldn't find it). So we went over and I had Rowan bring her last ballet recital outfit hoping to find a space in the building that would offer up a nasty background to my lovely girl. We found the abandoned pool and headed down into it. The first pics I took had a background of graffiti that was rather vile, in word and in picture, that was a bit too harsh for what I would like to have permanently in my portfolio attached to my girl. So we swapped sides and went for this perspective which had a bit more interest to it anyways. The garbage was clearly garbage and the textures would allow for a more entertaining edit. Popped off a handful of shots and then went searching for the cache. And then we got out of there. It was a creepy and probably dangerous place to be hanging out in.

After I edited the pic I showed it to Rowan and her comment was "I am the only thing bright in that picture." and right there I knew I had met the challenge.

it's a shame cities have to have places like this, but I guess the only consolation is that they make for interesting photos, well done.

The environment with the writing is fascinating. The ballerina is an odd and interesting addition.

Tremendous post apocalyptic feel. Dancing at the end of the world.

Kinda eerie and creepy, particularly with the graffiti, but it works well. The lighting is a bit harsh but it fits the scene that way. Nice shot, one of the best so far.
