I cannot describe how AMAZING it is to go on vacation to see a friend who not only has many of the same interests, but wants to just go balls out adventuring and make a damned good time of it.

She wanted to go exploring and I was quite happy to oblige! First stop was a huge hospital complex that was shut down. EPIC FAIL – but not for a lack of trying, that’s for sure! It was shut up tighter than a camel’s ass in a sandstorm. So conceding defeat, my bud snapped a picture of me in front of the first building to ever thwart me.

So after that disappointment we decided it would be fun to move on to a sure bet: a lonely, wide open abandoned orphanage. We had a little left of daylight, so basement pics weren’t possible and I totally missed a building because I was soaking in every detail of the main one but overall, I am thrilled with what I got. Being the generous chick she is, I once again got to play with a couple of her primes. I will get a zoom lens to have one, but I’m totally hooked on the primes. I believe I used the 50mm and the 35mm here. It was nice to try several different kinds I finally have a good understanding of my needs for what I like to photograph. I’m gonna score a 20mm 1.4 for Christmas to accommodate all the tiny spaces and low light goodness.

For some reason I think some are missing from the set. I have 6 gigs of photos to be sent via dropbox so this is just what I’ve uploaded to Flickr while I was there. As always, you can always check out and follow, subscribe, watch or whatever they call it to my photostream because there are things I post there that I don’t blog about.
