I went to the Dog Track for the first time with my buddy Ken about a year ago. We spent right around 3 hours inside the vacant and decaying building and I knew I wanted to go back before we left the property. In December I went back with Mike Olbinski and Scott Wood. In addition to exploring areas I hadn’t been before, I also switched lenses and slapped on the fisheye.

Broken chair backs from the Dog Track

Back Breaker

This shot here captures several of the Dog Tracks more common elements; broken seats, crushed tiles, broken windows, and of course bird shit.  You couldn’t go more than 10 feet in any direction before stepping in, on, around or over one of those things.  In fact, composing this shot with the tripod all splayed out close to the ground with narrow focus (f2.8) all while keeping it (and me for that matter) out of the detritus on the ground was somewhat of a “backbreaker”.  Appropriate since the shot is of broken seat backs…

    Just when I think I am done seeing more images from such a fun day out shooting, here comes another.

    Great shot. You really make me want to get a fish eye lens, you really put it’s perspective to great use.
