Hallway to Hell

(feel free to enhance your enjoyment of this post with a suitable soundtrack by clicking here.)

On Detroit’s east side, just off Jefferson Avenue, we found a curious old plant. The ground floor was crisscrossed with dead end hallways, and the roof was so covered with sheds and outcroppings as to give the entire structure the appearance of a castle. This is an HDR shot of one of the few hallways that had a way out at the end.



Hall of Coils.

  1. That’s crazy! What deterioration, and the single light source really gives one the sense of just how eerie that room must have been. Excellent use of HDR, by the way. Would you mind if I tweeted this one? (with attribution, of course)

      Thanks, Alex. That kinda is what we’re going for: gothic horror.

  4. We share a love for photographing abandoned places and things! This image really stirs up the imagination. I like all the tangled cables and then … the white light at the end of the room.

      Yes we do! And some of your shots that I’ve now seen make me think that I need to get out into the country. Supplement the urbex with rurex, I guess you’d say.
