    Fantastic, would this happen to be near another location you have shot? The tower behind the trailer looks familiar…

    As for names, I think Bettina or Willamina seemed fitting 😉

    • Hello Aazhie: Yes, those would be funny names. And this abandoned trailer used to house workers at a nearby sugar mill. So you are correct, it is very near the old abandoned sugar mill factory in Betteravia, California. Not far from Santa Maria. Lots of graffiti inside, discarded dishes, furniture, clothing, etc. Discarded objects left behind hint at past lives. And a massive pile of old tires adjacent to the trailer.

    Your photography is amazing! You capture so much emotion or I feel so much emotion. I have never heard the term Urban Exploration, but that is exactly my taste. I was calling it desolate photography but I am glad to have a style to call it now.

    • Thanks so much, Wendy, for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words. Yes, I am addicted to shooting abandoned structures. Photographers have always loved old, historic places such as ghost towns, etc. But Urban Exploration is all the rage these days.

      This does not necessarily mean you need to photograph something in an urban area though. Googling the term will pull up thousands of sites dedicated to urbex photography.

      There is a very palpable emotional ambience when entering abandoned structures. Using the digital technique of HDRI (high dynamic range imaging) allows me to capture every detail from the darkest shadow areas to the brightest highlights. Thanks again.

    • Thank you, Adam, for taking time to read my blog post and your kind words about the images. Not everyone is fond of urbex photography, but shooting abandoned and decaying structures makes for great photographic fodder.

  • […] Little House of Horrors – HDR photography is often used in the capture and processing of UrBex based themes.  The wide dynamic range can be used to produce pieces of fine art that are without peer, as illustrated by these great images from the studio of Renée M. Besta. […]
