Hurricane Irene has come and gone here in New Jersey. Some of us were hit hard and some were not. Last night was my first experience in a Hurricane, but in my area we were not hit hard. I did hear strange noises and there was a lot of wind and water.
All night my camera was shooting a time-lapse out the back sliding door window. Due to the lack of danger in my area, all I really captured was what looks like a heavy rain. Is that good or bad? Well, good for us, bad for photography. The lime-lapse was a big fail, but that is ok.
This morning, after breakfast, I took an exploratory walk around the neighborhood with Melissa and my sister-in-law, Lauren. The adventure was also lacking danger as very few trees fell, no wires down and only small puddles were on the streets.
Our walk was a giant loop to the main road and back. The walk back is where I saw some interesting things to photograph.
This is one of the photographs I captured during the walk. I am not sure what the building is, but I will not go inside until the area dries. I don’t trust a wet, ragged and abandoned building. So for now, I am calling it the abandoned shop.
More from the post Hurricane Irene walk to come.
Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
