Fort Ord, The Valentine's Day Excursion

bikenutt , alimjaved and I made another trip out to Fort Ord on Valentine's Day, of all times, because what's more romantic than exploring a decaying military base? :D  Truth be told, bikenutt  and I had just bought new cameras the day before and couldn't wait to break them in.  We had meant to head up to San Francisco instead, but thought it would be crowded with Chinese New Year revelers and whatnot.  Turns out, Fort Ord was pretty busy itself, with some PGA thing going on.  The big expanse of asphalt in the motorpool area was half-full of shiny cars, which seemed entirely wrong.

So, instead of photographing that area, we headed back up the hill to the older buildings to get better shots of those than we had taken previously.  From there, it was down to the rows of medical and administrative buildings.  I was really surprised that there wasn't more duplication in our photographs, considering there were three of us all clicking away in the same spots.  It's actually a lot of fun to go with a few people and then compare your photos for similarities and differences later.

Enough blathering... on to the photos!  I've included 12 photos in this post (6 from me, 6 from bikenutt ) and here's a link to my SmugMug gallery which contains additional photos from this excursion and prior, with captions and larger images.  Enjoy!
