Abandoned Places – US 395 wander [Part 1] - Hawes Revisited
Why so long with these photos?.. Read on at the bottom..
The pit of despair - This time we visited the Hawes site with heavy duty lights. Even with these lights, it was still and very, very dark.
The Radio Room – this room was once covered in copper sheeting and insulation to reduce potential interference and completely ground the surrounding. Scavengers have long since removed the evidence.
Crew quarters and lounge
A slightly different angle of the graffiti in the room
The generator room
Mountings and memories
Next up is new views of what had been George AFB and our run in with the security there.
A preview - the housing area
An explanation: Over the past few months, I’ve been busy doing three very important (in my mind) things.
1. Family and personal issues have kept me from doing a bunch of editing and formatting till recently.
2. I’ve been photographing various subjects like mad (14 sets of new photos & 8 of those are abandoned sites).
3. I’ve been selecting and preparing photos for my first public showing in September. At the September edition of Fright Night LA, I will be the featured artist. If you’re in Los Angeles on or about Sept 14th, come out and say hello. I may post a preview of the selected photos just prior to the show. If the show is a success (commercial / critical), I’m going to see whether or not there would be interest by a gallery to show them afterward.
