Print: Entrance

A little over a week ago I was driving around the western suburbs when I came across an abandoned home on the outskirts of Kildeer. The house was a split level, and not too old; probably built in the 60's or 70's. It looked like it had been abandoned for quite some time.

It was fairly difficult getting to the house, as it was right off a pretty busy two lane highway. I didn't want to be spotted parking in the driveway, of course, so I had to leave my car about half a mile away in a restaurant lot. I then walked to the house among the cover of trees that lined the road. It was a pain, but I didn't get discovered, so all the effort was worth it.

This photograph is of the house's front entrance, looking out onto the grassy hill the home stood on. I used my Pentax LX and a 50mm F/1.4 SMC lens, on Ilford HP5+ film. The physical print is 10 x 8 inches.
