The Urban Explorer In Me

Black And White Photography, Joseph, Photography


Nikon D610 and Nikon 24-85mm AF-S G VR Lens – 1/6 @ f/4.5 – 85mm – ISO 400

This is about the closest I can get to going inside one of these abandoned buildings. Β This was shot through a broken window at Kings Park Psychiatric Facility on Long Island, New York.

    1. I would normally go in to a location but this one particular place is pretty shot. My luck I would fall through the floor, LOL. Have a great day David πŸ™‚


  1. I love the deep blacks in this shot. Your processing and camera work really add to the atmosphere! Just great. No, not “just”. Super !! πŸ™‚


  2. Certainly I do wear a respirator every time I’m near/inside these places – asbestos, lead and mold. Great shot of this beautiful location – I’m planning a return there as soon as the leaves begin to turn in the fall. BTW – I also spray down with “Deep Woods” before i head out into tick country πŸ™‚


  3. Ah, is this the building that sported that great broken window in Rule of Thirds, Joe? I have to say that an 85mm zoom wouldn’t come close to being long enough for me! Great, creepy shot. I’ll think of you as I’m lying awake at night trying NOT to think about the UrbEx images I’ve seen today πŸ˜‰


  4. Yeeessss! btw I forgot to mention in my write up for my “Do Not Enter” post that you were part of the inspiration — so better late than never – thank you!! πŸ˜€


  5. Joe…you have been to my house!!!! Seriously though, this is really creepy. A great, atmospheric shot – all the better for being in b/w too.


  6. Wow that looks seriously creepy. But what a great photo it makes Joe! The light coming from up is fantastic, and all that paint peeling off the walls also! Not to mention all the mixed thoughts that I get from watching this photo. πŸ™‚ Not possible to put it into words. A really great shot Joe!


    1. Thank you very much for your kind words Elina πŸ™‚ It always is creepy when I take photos at this facility. To tell you the truth I was more afraid of all the poison ivy and ticks from all the overgrown grass and shrubs. I think the best thing to do before going in these buildings is wear some sort of respirator because of all the asbestos and probably lead paint. Have a great evening.
