m3photography asked: Hi there, this blog rocks! I was wondering about the location of the stone bridge that you found north of Iowa City. This was on the first page of your blog from October 14th, 2012. I have found a few abandoned sites around IC, but have not found that one. Any help? Thanks!
Pretty sure this is it on Elmira road between Vincent Ave NE and Rapid Creek NE. If you approach from the east, itll be on the right hand side. Drive a bit slow as its pretty easy to overlook.
:) happy hunting
cmauberg asked: The exploring of the hospital was as you put it very 'unoffical.' I'll spare those specific details. It was really nice inside actually. The first floor has the lights wired to an outside source so construction crews can begin gutting the building. Otherwise the power is off. As you get higher in floors there is less and less clutter. On the fifth floor there are dead birds everywhere. (VERY CREEPY.) But all in all, it was fun exploring it. Next time I'll take pictures for you.
Thatd be awesome. Id love to get in there myself sometime before its torn down honestly.
deipno asked: Do you know of anything in the Cedar Falls area or close too?
Not off the top of my head, but I know Cedar Rapids has some areas still abandoned from the last round of flooding that may be worth hitting up.
djulich asked: I'm a "hobbist" photographer if you will, and I love taking photos of abandoned buildings n such and was wondering of any places you would suggest (I love farms) close to Des Moines. Obviously places I wouldn't get into much trouble by tresspassing on. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
Old bridges are my favorite “legal” places to take pictures. Usually theyre on public land so no fear of trespassing issues, plus, people rarely question people taking pictures of old stuff. I recommend this website to find some:
shawshankedgillian15 asked: There's this place in Albany Iowa, which it isn't even a town anymore, but there is an old house completely over grown that's out there, and if you follow the path back far emo ugh, you come to the towns cemetery which is under a tree canopy.
That sounds amazing! Ill do a bit of research and next time im in the area, I’ll be sure to make a stop! Thanks!
