Abandoned Gas Station
US 42
Prestonville, Kentucky

Over the last few years I've made a few trips up and down US 42 in route to or from Clifty Falls in Madison, Indiana. Every time I pass this old dilapidated gas station with it's scattering of gas pumps I've had this urge to give it a closer look so on a road trip with my other half Deadbetty I finally decided to stop and believe me it was worth it. There was abandonment, rust, decay, and death, everything a photographer dreams of.

Kentucky State Capitol
Frankfort, Kentucky

5 Image HDR

Saturday, Lisa and I went on a little photography tour down into the rolling hills of Kentucky which for the most part turned out to be a flop. The route taken just didn't have much of anything of interest on it. Our first stop was The Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea to look into selling prints. After submitting our applications, we headed off to Shakertown. After doing some poking around, I discovered there are two waterfalls that I did not know about located on the property, saved that knowledge for later and headed up to Frankfort. It had been years since I'd been to the State Capitol, so of course the one day I show up there is construction equipment all around the front of the building. Little did I realize at the time they were building the stages for the re-inauguration event of Governor Steve Bashear for that following Monday. So I opted for a shot of the back of the building. I discovered that I definitely want to return to Frankfort, as it's loaded with cool cityscapes and interesting buildings. This photo is a test of a new HDR technique I've been wanting to try and to my delight, it worked. Quicker bracketing, less room for ghosting. Now it's time to go find me some waterfalls...

Hurst Falls
Cove Springs Park
Frankfort, Kentucky

5 Image HDR

After a great weekend with my other half in Louisville, Kentucky the weekend before Valentines Day, I thought I would scout a falls I had never seen before on our way home. Located in a small city park on the northern outskirts of town, when we pulled into the parks parking lot I was amazed to see that it was fully visible right there. It was raining lightly and the creek in front of the falls was moving pretty quickly. I couldn't believe how pretty the falls was and the interesting thing about this beauty is the splash pool is created by a small man made dam which overflows onto the viewing platform then falls into the creek making multiple compositions of the falls a challenge.

Odd notation of today's post, today is the 1 year anniversary that I last had an image make it into Explore. I find it a bit interesting that after having over 100 photos featured over 3 years it suddenly stopped. Weird.

2nd Floor
Hayswood Hospital
Maysville, Kentucky

5 Image HDR

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to visit the abandoned Hayswood Hospital in Maysville, Kentucky. Scenically overlooking the city, it was constructed in 1925 after the original hospital had become old and outdated. Over the years it received many won many care accredited awards and the US Navy used a portion of the hospital to rehabilitate the mentally injured survivors who survived the attack on pearl harbor. In the early 1980s an earthquake centered near the city caused structural damage to the building and it was abandoned in 1983. After over 30 years of vacancy the 4 story hospital is slowly falling in on itself. Interestingly it seemed to me the further you went up the floors the better condition it was. This area here on the second floor really captured my attention. Although there's a few places in the building that the decay is advanced this room here won the award for the most dilapidated. Numerous holes in the ceiling had created several pools of water throughout the room and on a day as warm as this one the snow melt was creating little waterfalls all around.

Also, so far, I know of two cousins who were born here.
