A Crooked House


no images were found

My good friend, Jacques Gudé found this for me. We made arrangements to shoot for a day in DC when I went down for the Marine Corps Marathon a couple of weeks ago.

I didn’t know what to expect. Plan was to hit the Air and Space Museum that day (which we did), but when I got off the plane I was greeted with a half dozen emails from Jacques with potential urbex locations. Most were either out of the question because of proximity, or logistics, but this one was there.

It is an old seminary in, well … the DC area … no idea where, exactly.  But it was interesting. Half the property was renovated, brand spanking new condos, and half was run down and over grown. We both wished we could get into one of these buildings, but it was not to be. We both shot, compared notes, and shot some more.

This shot was the first I took of the day. On any shoot, the first shot is usually a throw away for me – a shake the cobwebs shot. But after reviewing the brackets, I was happy with it. I shot it as a vertical with my 20mm lens. I was thinking square crop all the way.

I had great fun processing it as well. I ran it through onOne Software’s Perfect Photo Suite 6.0 and quickly got what I wanted.

  1. Eh, it is crooked isn’t it? That place look… strange. Cool shot man. Does it look as strange in person as it does in this shot? Kinda like, random I guess.
