AHH I fucking love it when people come to my neck of the woods! It's the coolest thing when some of you folks that actually know a little thing-or-two about photography capture some of these places I've been to over and over. You guys always seem to think of and find the angles I never would and it's really refreshing seeing these places anew.
I've been to that second house you posted something like 15 times now - it was actually my first-ever "real" explore - and up until one of those last photos ("Tight Corner Overview") I didn't even recognise it! I think that's absolutely amazing.
Anyways, I was at that first house about a week prior to the arson. I'll post a couple shots for anyone that's curious what it looked like prior to the fire.
The garage was burned down a couple weeks later
It was in pretty rough shape.
