Google+ Photos3,191,556Often times, traveling to far-and-away places brings along a certain level of anxiety and unease.

Since we have some special Googlers in from out of town (+Sara Eleta   and +Amanda Janney ) we will meeting at 5:30 PM at Red's Java House on the Embarcadero. What better way to show off our amazing city and spend a beautiful Thursday afternoon than under them SF iconic landmark, the Bay Bridge? From there, we will drink and click down the waterfront, eventually making our way towards AT&T Park. The Giants are hosting the Cincinnati Reds that evening, so there should be a lively atmosphere, with plenty of street photography to mix in with the usual Bay Bridge and Waterfront photos. There will be free schwag, drink specials, photography talk, friendships being born, friendships being ended, and a plethora of fun photos that you will most likely regret in the morning. You do NOT need to Drink to be a part of the #DrinkAndClick .

Piotr Tymiński6,921URBEX PHOTOGRAPHERS v.2A circle of my urbex photographers for you to enjoy. A wide variety of styles - from HDR to almost documentary but all with a taste of abandonment. I'm sure you will be inspired by some of the work presented in the streams of these fine ladies and gentlemen.I did every effort to include only the people who show their own original work and do not jam their streams with garbage. But since I am only a fragile human it's possible (although unlikely as I am also a genius, too) that I made a small mistake or two. Don't be scared to yell at me then and I'll do my best to clean things up.There are some more good photographers which I stumbled upon, but since the accounts did not seem to be updated recently I decided not to include them. So hopefully no junk or dead pages here.G+ is a vast resource and there's no way on Earth I could find all the great people of the genre so if you think you would fit in in the circle please give me a shout. Your kind suggestions in respect of adding some folk which I had surely missed would be greatly appreciated.Sharing of the circle is obviously appreciated, too. It's for everybody to enjoy and get inspired, so no harm in sharing:) Your suggestions are always most welcomed - I'm sure I've missed a lot of nice people - G+ is a huge place. And no, you do not need to circle me, buy me vodka or feed my cat just because I included you in the circle.#sharedcircle #sharedcircles #sharingcircle #sharingcircles  #circle #circles  #topengagers #circleshare    #circlesharing #photographycircles #urbex2014-05-23 13:15:17114996CC G+

Piotr Tymiński3,084URBEX PHOTOGRAPHERS v.1A circle of my urbex shooters for you to enjoy. A wide variety of styles - from HDR to almost documentary. I'm sure you will be inspired by some of the work presented in the streams of these fine ladies and gentlemen.I did every effort to include only the people who show their own original work and do not jam their streams with garbage. But since I am only a fragile human it's possible (although unlikely as I am also a genius, too) that I made a small mistake or two. Don't be scared to yell at me then and I'll do my best to clean things up.There are some more good photographers which I stumbled upon, but since the accounts did not seem to be updated recently I decided not to include them. So no junk or dead pages here.G+ is a vast resource and there's no way on Earth I could find all the great people of the genre so if you think you would fit in in the circle please give me a shout. Your kind suggestions in respect of adding some folk which I had surely missed would be greatly appreciated.Sharing of the circle is obviously appreciated, too. It's for everybody to enjoy and get inspired, so no harm in sharing:)And no, you do not need to circle me, buy me vodka or feed my cat just because I included you in the circle.#circles #circleshare #sharedcircle #urbex #abandoned #ue #derelict2014-04-20 12:59:20105457CC G+

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813411CC G+

Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019914101CC G+

Panther Creek Falls
Columbia River Gorge

I had seen a dozen photos of these falls before I finally got to see them in person earlier this year, but even the best photos don't do these falls justice.

There's just something about the smell of the damp ground, the gorgeous blanket of water caressing the rocks and how the mist hits your face when you're standing here.

Blast Doors

These are the blast doors for Launch Silo No. 3 at the Beale 851-C Titan I Missile Base in Chico, California.

To me, these types of images are really fun to create.  This space was pitch dark, so to get this shot, I set up an LED panel at the camera, shining towards the blast doors to get a composition. Once the framing was set, I took a LED panel and placed it beneath the walkway on the right. I also placed a panel behind the ajar door. Lastly, during the exposure, I light painted the circular section of the tunnel, near the camera, with a flashlight.

I took two steps and felt like I had been submerged into a living painting. 

My dry skin danced while being steamed by the heat of the spring beneath the dry summer sun. 

My eyes began to flutter faster than my heart could keep up. 

I had waited years to see this and it was more grand than I ever imagined...

"Nature's Wild Places"
Crystal Cave, Iceland

http://bit.ly/Sony_a7rReview

There is no doubt in my mind that every photographer...no scratch that...every person...should have exploring an ice cave on their bucket list. It is an experience that is hard to describe in words and challenging to capture in a single image. In the end...it is something you just have to do. This photo was taken from the inside of Crystal Cave in the south of Iceland.

I am just about to announce my Iceland Winter Workshop in March where we will focus on Ice Caves and the northern lights, so if you are interested, just let me know in the comments below and I will ping you when the workshop goes live.

This photo was taken with the +Sony  #a7r , a small, lightweight, full frame mirror-less camera that is pushing the boundaries of what photographers are looking for in... more »

Sapphire Pool, Biscuit Basin
Yellowstone National Park

I'm sitting in SLC waiting to catch my connecting flight back to San Francisco and I definitely wish I wasn't going back home yet.

Yellowstone was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and I definitely see myself making a return visit for a serious photography trip during an off-peak season.

The Grand Tetons were incredible and it will be tough to top paddle boarding with my Dad and brother on String Lake, my favorite spot I have paddled to date, beneath the Tetons surrounded by lilypads and fish.

This is one of the most incredible natural phenomenon I have seen.

I can only imagine what it felt like to stumble upon this spring years before Yellowstone became a National Park.

Woke up this morning and we could see the bison near the entrance to the campground, so we took a drive.

Adventures are my absolute favorite and so far I have maintained my goal of taking at least one trip a month in 2014.

Last weekend, I took a whirlwind trip to the desert to shoot some airplanes and we also stopped at this old movie set at sunset where I snapped this selfie.

This weekend, I'm heading to Wyoming to meet up with my Dad and brother for 5 days of camping and exploring the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone for the first time.

If you have any suggestions of things to see while there, let me know!

B-52E

This B-52E aircraft was used by General Electric in the 1960's to test their TF-39 engine and was disposed of in the desert after the tests.

Fast forward nearly 30 years later to 1991 when the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) was signed and 350 nuclear bombers were being destroyed as part of the agreement. The Russians saw this bomber on aerial footage and soon after, the US destroyed the aircraft by placing explosives in the fuselage.

Essex Cell Block

The Essex County Jail in New Jersey was constructed in 1837 and designed by architect John Haviland, who also designed Eastern State Penitentiary. 

The building served as the primary jail until 1970, when a new facility was constructed. 

Most of the structures on the property were badly damaged during a fire in 2001, but many of the cell blocks are still in tact.

Antenna Terminal

This tunnel, leading away from the launch silos, leads towards the  antenna terminals for the Titan I ICBM base. At the end of the junction are two 65 foot tall cylindrical structures that once contained the inflatable radome, responsible for tracking and guidance, for the underground site.

Basking Rays
Office in the Admin Building of the Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital

The wings of the Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital in New York have decayed and collapsed beyond compare over the last few decades, due to weather and a lightning fire, since the asylum was abandoned, but the roof of the Administration Building was properly covered when vacated, which has left that section of the Kirkbride building in tact.

Admin Building, Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital
Poughkeepsie, New York

I have wandered the lonely collapsed halls of the former Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital many times, but until last month, I had never seen the Administration Building from this perspective. Standing in front of this historic grand architecture watching the moon rise was really magical.

This gorgeous building was completed in 1871, on a piece of land along the river in Poughkeepsie, New York. Most Kirkbride buildings were constructed with symmetrical wings, but this hospital was not, because there was an expectation that more male patients would be submitted than female. 

The campus operated for over one hundred years before closing in 2003. The campus not sits abandoned, mostly collapsed from years of neglect and a major fire in the male wing in 2007.

Tunnel Junction, Launch Equipment Terminal
Beale 851-C Missile Base, Chico

It's hard to describe the feeling I had when I took my first breath of the stale air inside the Titan Missile Silo. It brought back many memories of other locations that smelled very similar; stale, damp and toxic.

For the rest of the 8 hour shoot, I wore a respirator, which drove me crazy, but in the end it didn't matter because there's something so peaceful and relaxing about wandering around places like this, which I'm sure seems so strange to most of you. This location in particular was a place that was saturated with war, a location that terrorized many, but when I was here, it was a place of peace.

What is your happy place?

Blue hour - Wingdale Wards, Harlem State Hospital

Last November, the company that purchased the property began performing illegal abatement on many of the buildings. Sadly, what remained for years after the hospital was abandoned, was removed during that process.

Twin Falls, Mammoth

Spent the weekend exploring the Yosemite and Mammoth areas of the Sierras. Got in a bit of full moon shooting, explored a lot of dirt roads and camped for 2 nights.

Before I left for the trip, I downloaded a free iPhone app called "1-Hour Photo," so I spent a lot of time shooting with it. You snap a pic in the app and it will develop it in black and white an hour later. Since I stopped shooting film about 8 years ago, I have missed the anticipation of waiting for the roll to be developed. This brought back a bit of that nostalgia.

Female Violent Ward Collapse
Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, New Jersey

When the outer wings of Greystone Park Psychiatric closed in the 1970's, a plan to protect the roof was never implemented and after experiencing many years of extreme East Coast weather, the decay has become dangerous.

The hospital completely shut down in 2008 after a new hospital was constructed behind the original campus. Sadly, this beautiful historic stone building is slated for demolition later this year.

Baffles

Sound baffles were installed on the ceiling of the underground power station of a former Titan I ICBM base to help prevent the loud sounds of the machinery from reverberating due to the circular ceiling.

Little Boxes
Storage closet in the female wards at Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in New Jersey.

Over the last few decades much of this hospital has been collapsing due to weather and lack of upkeep. The Administration section of the asylum was the most recently abandoned portion, vacated less than 10 years ago, due to the construction of a new Greystone behind the current decaying building.

Unfortunately, this building is in danger of demolition and will likely be nothing more than a piece of forgotten history by the end of 2014.

Three Floors & An Armoire

The collapse in the female wings of Hudson River State Hospital is extensive. When the hospital shut down, no efforts were made to cover the roof of the wings and the weather eventually began to take it's toll on this beautiful Kirkbride Building.

This image shows a storage closet on the second floor with a collapsed ceiling and floor, which allows us to see the identical storage closet on the first floor and possibly a patient or nurses room on the 3rd floor with a beautiful armoire.

Violent Ward Doors

Female violent wards at Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in Morris Plains, NJ.

This facility completely shut down a few years ago, but many of the outer portions of the wings, such as the female violent wards, have been in-operational since the 1970's.

Sadly, this hospital is currently on the list for demolition and is scheduled to be torn down sometime this year.

Memories of Four
Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital, New Jersey

Four years ago, I had the opportunity to shoot the Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in New Jersey. I spent a mere few hours wandering the halls, feeling incredible rushed and unable to cure the longing in my heart for seeing the whole complex and spending countless minutes staring and photographing every detail of the asylum. 

When I returned home from that trip, I discovered about 30 of the less than 100 images I had taken, were missing off the memory card; I was devastated. 

Earlier this month, I had a chance to return and the asylum was as glorious as I remembered. Unfortunately, there is a lot more graffiti and destruction from the people who have set foot inside the walls since, but the natural decay was just as beautiful as I remembered. 

I saw this painting, in the femalevi... more »

Wingdale Wards Kitchen, Harlem State Hospital
 
The former Harlem State Hospital property was recently purchased by a religious university and the state of New York caught the new owners performing illegal abatement on many buildings in November 2013 and put a hold on the construction process but not before this beautiful building was stripped. This kitchen is one of the few rooms in the building that was still in tact.

Chapel inside the Administration Building at Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in Morris Plains, New Jersey.

Greystone Psychiatric Hospital was constructed along the Kirkbride plan and admitted its first patient in 1877. The outer portions of the male and female wings were abandoned in the 1970's, but most of the facility remained in operation until 2008 before fully shutting down. Sadly, this massive, gorgeous hospital will be demolished later this year.
