Old Derelict

Uploaded: February 24, 2006


This is a big ol' hulk south of Urbana Illinois. I saw it a while back while out with the family and it just called out to be photographed. Unfortunately, it faces north, so the lighting is pretty tough!

f/14, 1/100s, 109mm, ISO-200, handheld.

Thanks so much Jill! I really appreciate the feedback! (Can you guess what I will be using for my wall calendar at work next year? :) Only problem will be limiting it to 13!) #2464362
