Last weekend me and Victor went to explore the Canada Malting Silos building that is located on the Lachine Canal. We were checking it out to see if we could gain entrance to the abandoned silos. Sadly we weren’t able to find a way of getting in. I was able to grab photos of the exterior, and thought I’d share. We had a peek inside the building through the cracks of some of the welded up holes and it has now made me even more determined than before to get inside. There has also been news this year that the building may get torn down by its current owner and converted into condos so time is of the essence. I’ve always had a love for abandoned buildings, I just love that creepy sense of time gone past and the old machinery just left behind. Hope to find more places to explore. There are definitely a lot of abandoned buildings in Montreal, getting access is always the trick. If you want to see photos taken from inside check out this blog, it’s so beautiful!

52 Weeks of Self-Portraits

13/52: Blending In

52 weeks of self-portraitsI just had to make this the self-portrait for this week. I had too much fun last Sunday at the Malting Silos to not include the double exposure of myself that I took there against the buildings large graffiti filled silos. I must be missing taking photos with film because I keep converting photos I’ve taken with my digital and trying to process them to look like black and white film. I just love how this shot turned out and is really excited by how much I blend into graffiti on the building. Tomorrow marks the last day of work before I am on an almost two week vacation from my job so I am hoping to really try and capture some amazing shoots then. Perhaps explore some self-portraits without using double exposure? Hahaha, it’s been my go to lately but I’ve really been enjoying taking them and trying to capture unique situations but I have a few things I need more time to dedicate to them so they will be perfect to take now that I’m on my vacation.

Inspiration:

“Sails catch any wind that they can
Through any ocean to any land
There’s no worries
Power carries no concern
Silhouetted by the fields as they burn
There’s no worries

You’re falling straight into our hands
No compromise,and no demands
You’re falling straight into our hands
Into our hands,into our hands

Still water hides an undertow
You can’t fight what you can’t control
There’s no worries “

Sparta “Red.Right.Return”
