The place was interesting, although largely inaccessible (the interiors, anyway). I captured several images through windows. The one small house that was open was quite intriguing. It had a bathroom but no kitchen. I think a poor migrant family lived in the one-room place. A bunch of clues were left behind, including an old photo album and kid items. Whoever lived here disappeared quickly, as it seemed like they left everything behind.

Captured in November of '13.
The main house was still locked up and it looked untouched. The small home that had been locked up was now open. This is how I discovered that it had been used as a workshop. I'm not sure if it was always a workshop, or if it had once been a home that was later converted. From the outside it looks like a small house typical of this area.

The only camera I brought along with me was a Nokia Lumia 1020. Yes, my cell phone! It's a good camera that I've used many times before. I didn't have time to post-process these images the way that I normally would (using Alien Skin Exposure software on my computer at home), so I edited them using an app on my phone (an app that came with the phone called Creative Studio). Overall I'm pleased with the results, and it goes to show that you don't need any special gear to create successful images.
