So yesterday I went out with my photographer and close friend Carol. We decided to shoot at the Iola Campus here in Rochester, NY. They are abandoned buildings, but we strictly shoot outside the buildings using them as a backdrop for the photographs.
So we get there, and as we are pulling in to the parking lot we are greeted by several Sheriff cars and two white buses of inmates. They were doing their community clean-up. So we ask if we can shoot and he tells us they will be done in about half an hour.
Okay fine, so we decide to drive around back to park, but there is already a car back there and we didn't want to intrude. Instead we went to Starbucks for some coffee. (I got myself a peppermint mocha.)
We head back about 40 minutes later and they are still there so we decide to just park in the back anyway, there's nobody in the car so no issues especially since we are not going to be using the building the car is parked by anyway.
So the first thing we do is walk around the building to figure out where we will be taking the pictures. As we walk around we notice every door on the building has been busted open and in one there were several large empty cartridges. So that doesn't stop us, we still do the shoot and get some really awesome pictures.
so, needless to say, the cover to book two of the Dark Angel Trilogy will be awesome.
