An Impressive Mess in San Marcos (Lots of Pics)

I had actually been scoping this place out for a while. But it being literally in the back yard of the San Marcos Cop Shop, I put it on the back burner. I'm glad I stopped by today because there were already people inside.

While I was taking some outside shots, a gentleman with a camera poked his head out of a window and said "Hi, this is my studio." and invited me in.

These pictures are only cropped and not post processed in any way. Mostly because I wasn't trying to do anything artistic (though I'd like to go back and try some better shots).

I shot with available light and a tripod. Canon XTi - Tamron 11-18mm F/4.5-5.6

Bad place for a smoker, I'm guessing.

Definitely. It used to be a flour mill. Probably still flammable dust in the air.

That furniture is gorgeous. That can't be leftovers from the cabinetry company, could it?

I was told this place has been a flour mill, a dairy farm, a cabinetry business, and the residence of an upholsterer. It's now privately owned.

Ah, the upholsterer explains it.

Looks like a very interesting place. Nice job.

It looks like the theater from the movie August Rush. Way cool.

Looks like there is some good lighting in that place. Not too mention lots of cool stuff to look at.

That place is great! The piano makes me sad. It looks so much like the one my 101-year-old grandma owns. I hate to see pianos abandoned. I think it's cool that the brightest thing in the place is the Texas flag!

the antiquwes int htat place are amazing.....

Still we smile and deny that we're cursed.
But of all our iniquities ignorance may be the worst.

liked the pic with the barber chair in it. i have one from my great grandfather's barber shop he had.

...the wings on my shoes shrank now the moths won't eat my kidneys, when i shake my state capital it only yields 3 fairy napkins, but how do i know my banana slippers are like water boats because when the moon winks it burns my hamster punches, and that's how you get to llama school rowing your canoe backwards up main street when the front bumper falls off, do mermaids get to drink orange juice?
