Obese Year In Review
< on 1/14/2023 6:02 AM >

My first real UER post in almost 2 years! Saw Interstitials YIR and had to get my clout too. Hope you all are well. As usual, I haven't been exploring much. BUT, still managed to scrape together like 30 places this year. Nearly all of them were power plants, so enjoy a fairly heavily curated and vague showcase of my year while I try not to incriminate myself too horribly.

I've been very happy with my photography developing this year, and also started shooting film, although just for normal photography. Flickr is linked if interested.

Anyway, please enjoy some of my favorite close up pictures of turbines

*having just made this, I realize it looks like I had a busy year. Photographically I certainly did, and that's all that matters.

1. Abandoned Sloppy Dawgs!
[/url]

2.
[/url]

3.
[/url]

4.
[/url]

5.
[/url]

6.
[/url]

7.
[/url]

8. A steel mill! After having a laughable failure at a plant, but soo close to success, we hit this steel mill on the way home only for it to be swarming with workers on the entry, and having a drone chase us out on the exit.
[/url]

9.
[/url]

10.
[/url]

11.
[/url]

12. After failing at one of the more stupid plants I've ever tried in broad daylight on a weekday, we settled on this nice former sign-making facility.
[/url]

13.
[/url]

14.
[/url]

15.
[/url]

16. The plant that would've powered my house, demolished some time this year.
[/url]

17.
[/url]

18.
[/url]

19.
[/url]

20. Back again here. This was the only place I could explore for most of the year
[/url]

21.
[/url]

22.
[/url]

23.
[/url]

24.
[/url]

25. Got my first roll of film scanned!
[/url]

26. Obviously the only portrait I know how to take
[/url]

27.
[/url]

28.
[/url]

29.
[/url]

30.
[/url]

31.
[/url]

32. One of my favorite pictures ever
[/url]

33.
[/url]

34. I apparently visited this place to take the same shots on every one of my cameras with how deprived I was of exploring
[/url]

35.
[/url]

36. A scene from the previously mentioned worst idea ever
[/url]

37.
[/url]

38. If you weren't sick of this shot yet. Not sure why these scans are all out of order, very annoying
[/url]

39. Below this was a really cool turbine hall that I can't show y'all
[/url]

40.
[/url]

41.
[/url]

42.
[/url]

43.
[/url]

44. Half of these shots, like this, I got on film as well but I'm just including the digital ones since they come up first on my flickr and they're also exposed right
[/url]

45.
[/url]

46.
[/url]

47.
[/url]

48. 2 workers drove right past us as we were walking in here and didn't stop for some reason so we hid inside anyway. By sheer luck they happen to be looking for the bolt storage shelves, exactly where we were hiding, and they found us again. They didn't care either time luckily and we scared the daylight out of them
[/url]

49.
[/url]

50.
[/url]

51. Another film roll! Now equipped with a wide angle lens
[/url]

52.
[/url]

53.
[/url]

54.
[/url]

55.
[/url]

56. This time the film version came up before the digital
[/url]

69.
[/url]

58.
[/url]

59.
[/url]

60. Another film version first. I think this was the point when I got too busy to edit pictures and remained so for like 6 months, leaving me A LOT of pictures to get through
[/url]

61.
[/url]=

62. This hospital and that other plant are basically the only places I went to this year
[/url]

63.
[/url]

64. As disgusting as superia normally looks, the shots from here turned out beautifully. Luckily I was only shooting film for most of these visits
[/url]

65.
[/url]

66. I think taking this picture changed my whole perspective on exposure for the rest of the year
[/url]

67.
[/url]

68. I also remembered here that I bought this fancy expensive lens with f2.8 that I had only ever shot stopped down until then.
[/url]

69.
[/url]

70.
[/url]

71.
[/url]

72.
[/url]

73. Albeit impossible, I really liked shooting these ladles.
[/url]

74.
[/url]

75.
[/url]

76.
[/url]

77.
[/url]

78.
[/url]

79. Little known fact, it's always cooler to put the big interesting thing mostly out of frame so you van get a better look at the other stuff
[/url]

80.
[/url]

81.
[/url]

82. Sad turbine awaiting its demise
[/url]

83.
[/url]

84. There were like 20 of these but the tight shot looks better
[/url]

85. Caught this boiler sleeping naked
[/url]

86.
[/url]

87. Almost the full hall because I'm feeling nice
[/url]

88.
[/url]

89.
[/url]

90.
[/url]

91.
[/url]

92.
[/url]

93.
[/url]

94. Some of the most amazing light I've seen in here, did my best to try and capture the feeling
[/url]

95. From here on will be some little intermissions with film shots cuz I like all my normal pictures way more than exploring pictures. This was Bonneville
[/url]

96. The only other exploring shot on this roll probably. Colorado gold mine
[/url]

97. Another one of my all time favs
[/url]

98. Another cuz I love every shot on this roll
[/url]

99. In north Texas I think
[/url]

100. Tripping on ludicrous amounts of shrooms in my friends trap house
[/url]

101. Glad this is somewhat exploring related cuz again I love every shot from these rolls way too much
[/url]

102.
[/url]

103.
[/url]

104.
[/url]

105. This one will make a reappearance on digital cuz superia is poo
[/url]

106.
[/url]

107.
[/url]

108.
[/url]

109. Random shot I love from San Fransisco. At this point I had 2 film cams now to have different stocks loaded and ready. Definitely a life saver
[/url]

110. I have now realized I have my flickr set to upload date while making this which is why all the film stuff is coming first before I edited the digital pictures. But now I also realize if I set to photo date they'll all be plants first since I have them set to just 2022. Anyway, back to pictures
[/url]

111.
[/url]

112.
[/url]

113.
[/url]

114.
[/url]

115. Very funny story here with photo proof that I'll never be able to share
[/url]

116. Coronado chillin
[/url]

117.
[/url]

118.
[/url]

119.
[/url]

120.
[/url]

121.
[/url]

122.
[/url]

123. Explored these sheep things super hard and the moose here
[/url]

124.
[/url]

125.
[/url]

126.
[/url]

127. Really fighting the urge to include all the sick trees in BC that come up after this on my flickr, so if you like cool trees go look yourself
[/url]

128.
[/url]

129.
[/url]

130.

[/url]

138. that beautiful 2.8
[/url]

139.
[/url]

140.
[/url]

141. Back to the colorado mine, on digital. The pictures jumping around makes it seem like I did way more than I did
[/url]

142.
[/url]

143.
[/url]

144.
[/url]

145.
[/url]

146.
[/url]

147.
[/url]

148.
[/url]

149.

150. Slept in a place for the first time here. Was a brutal experience and probably took a few years off of my lungs because of a completely avoidable sleeping spot
[/url]

151.

[/url]

159.
[/url]

160.
[/url]

161.
[/url]

162.
[/url]

163. This shot made me realize I can look for cameras on the way in AND get pictures at the same time. It also taught me how dramatically different you can make a picture if you took it well
[/url]

164.
[/url]

165. I climbed one of those towers a while ago so this counts. Also I can see these from my house so that's cool
[/url]

166. Stupid stupid place. Amazing but so dumb and stupid and yet again I have to venture back to try and get at least one picture
[/url]

167.
[/url]

168. One of my fav plants for sure
[/url]

169.
[/url]

[/url]

171.
[/url]

172.
[/url]

173.
[/url]

174. This place was abandoned
[/url]

175. This counts cuz trains or something. Squamish BC
[/url]

176. These were crazy vibrant fall colors but apparently the lab thought otherwise and I'm too lazy to fix
[/url]

177. Another little intermission cuz my friends are sick. Outside Bellingham WA
[/url]

178.
[/url]

179.
[/url]

180.

The best compilation of industrial stuff I've seen a long, long time. Some of the semi-active stuff is nuts.

Also, you're a braver man than I to commit to film like that

97.! Llamas / alpacas are so goofy! Always look for some when going to the zoo

Overall, industrial places appear ginormous in these photos ^^

So many good plants. Nice framing. The two goats in the birch forest is one of the best pics I've seen all year.
