Don't Wait! Explore & Photograph That Abandoned Place Today

Abandoned Homestead - Tehachapi, California
I drove by an abandoned house that I've explored a couple of times. It's just outside of Tehachapi, California in the country near some farm fields. The house was completely gone! Nothing was left, except for the tractors that had torn it down.

The lesson here is that if you procrastinate, you may be too late. I've learned this lesson several times before. Your opportunities are limited. Eventually things change. Sometimes abandoned building get demolished.

Photography is about being in the right place at the right time with a camera in your hand and with photographic vision in your head. You have to make sure you to put yourself in place to capture a great photograph. If you wait, you may find yourself waiting too long.

The photographs in this post were all captured at the now gone house. I'm glad that I didn't wait or else these photographs wouldn't exist. I used a Sigma DP2 Merrill and a Nokia Lumia 1020.
