    I was bored at the family gathering, lucky for me I brought my camera! :) So after dinner I ventured off into the woods and found this old abandon shack. I took a few pics, these are a couple of my favorites.

    The old mailbox. It's just sitting out there in the middle of no where, the road has long since been grown over (not even really visible).

    Inside the old shack I found this box marked "bomb". The text isn't really all that legible, but it certainly looks like an old explosives create.

    What do ya think?

    #1 - I like the B&W/mono-chrome conversion but wish the mailbox was on the right side of the frame.

    #2 - Did the unibomber live here? Good natural light shot.

    +1. That is exactly what I was going to say. Maybe you could try a horizontal flip (mirror image), though sometimes when you do that it looks off in a way that is not easily discernable.

    It's so funny you mention that... I think it belongs on the right too... it bugged me when I got home. :D I was trying to do something different, and I did... and I don't think I like it.

    Here's another "iffy" one I shot yesterday. I wasn't sure if I was going to share it, but what the heck.

    That would be a dead possum. I was in taking pictures of the explosives box and smelled something. I started looking around and found that dead little dude.

    Good thing you didn't find a dead guy missing all his limbs haha. Do you have any pictures of the entire shack from outside it? Great pics man.
