Ocean Urbex

This may very well be my first image that was taken while leaning out a window and hanging out over the ocean.  I’ll go through my archives to confirm, but I’m pretty sure this is the first.

I took this shot from the renovated office space located next to the former Tarr & Wonson Paint Factory.  All of the office windows had screens except this one, and my new friend at Ocean Alliance allowed my to open it to grab a shot of the side of the old factory which is otherwise only visible by boat (or a pretty big telephoto lens from across the harbor).  Looking at the outside, you can get a sense of the danger inside, and why I was only allowed in there for a short and supervised time.  A fun time nonetheless.

Have a great weekend.

    I would give anything to shoot this place, what a great spot! I love the textures and details in the weathering here Steven, you’ve really brought all the great elements out for everyone to enjoy with this piece!
