After posting to Instagram with “Florida Project” as the location, I found lots of other pictures linked to the same location showing the beauty inside the closed down projects of Florida Ave.
The next day I took a trip inside with two film cameras and a 60D. While I have to wait on the film, the digital versions are ready to post.
While I found a couple ways in to various rooms with beautiful tags, there is so much more locked up in the barricaded projects that I couldn’t get to.
Here is a link to more of the inspiration work found inside: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxkEOR_sIX4

Florida Project, New Orleans
Colorado. March 2014. Went in on skis and camped on top of snow.
My friend Stephen has been working on his Monte Carlo for a while. He picked me up and we had brunch at my favorite brunch joint in Portland, Tasty and Sons, while I was in town. Going around the first corner he hit the switches and one of the front wheels came off the ground leaving us driving on three wheels. If felt like the car was going to flip over and I grabbed on to the “Oh shit” bar for my life. It was great fun after my initial scare. I’ve dreamt of hyrdos for a while so the cruise was defiantly a dream come true.
After breakfast we went down to the industrial area near Albina on the East side of the river and snapped a few pictures. My focus was off on most of them but this one turned out alright.
Portland, OR w/Rolleiflex
I’m back home from my trip to Wyoming and Montana. Shot almost exclusively on film, but here are some digital stills I took while filming in Glacier National Park at sunrise.
Uncle Richard. This is one of the first pictures I took with an old Rollieflex I picked up at Blue Moon camera while on a trip to Portland, OR.
As I’m not particularly versed in medium format film, I didn’t seal the film shut right away which resulted in the sides getting a bit faded from exposure to light.
