Silent Hill

Took a day trip about a month or so ago. We decided to go up to Centralia, PA to check out the ghost town for ourselves. Centralia was abandoned in haste in the mid 1960′s when an uncontrollable fire started burning within the mines beneath it . The place cast an erie feeling. There are about 15 locals I believe still living there. Most streets are empty… no houses, stores, people, cars…nothing. The streets are still there and some you can travel on, yet most are not safe for cars because of the possibility of the ground opening up and swallowing you.  Like literally, it’s happened to a few residents. It’s also creepy knowing that the concept of Silent Hill was created based off this town. Like traveling through uninhabited country, to arrive at an abandoned town that looks like life just stopped there suddenly and unexpectedly. Crazy. Well here are a few photos from that trip. Leave comments below!! Thanks for stopping through! 🙂

I had that bug to get out recently to shoot some street photography. I love to get out and see different people and with street photography I love that you can capture that in a moment forever. So this past weekend with the Baltimore Artscape going on, which is the largest FREE artshow in the US. I felt it was perfect for this. The art, music and people were all amazing to create photos of. I have been meaning to make this a regular thing, and with Zack Arias’ new course out on Kelby, I had to play! If you are into Street Photography, check it out here!

Hope you enjoyed this post and photos. Thanks for stopping through.
