In my last post I mentioned my love of decaying old cars and trucks. Another powerful subject is abandoned and decaying buildings. The shot above is from the Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. If you desire to photograph this type of subject, the Asylum is a great way to do so. You get to explore several buildings and the photo opportunities are almost limitless.
The panorama above is taken in the Women’s Auxiliary Building. The only way to see this building is to sign up for a phototour. The regular asylum visitors are not taken to this one.
