Furniture For Sale

April 20, 2011 by Jason Hines

Happy hump day everyone! I want to take a moment to thank you all for your support! It always means so much to me when you take the time to leave a comment, feedback or tweet, and I appreciate every one of them, even if I don’t get a chance to reply to you all individually.

In yesterdays image I was able to capture a perspective where the dog track looked almost like it was still in use rather than in decay. This was due mainly to the composition which I chose mainly for the great leading lines and a little extra saturation of the yellow chairs. Today, I am showing you a different perspective that shows the track at it’s best, or rather, it’s worst depending on how you look at it. I love this image as a black & white and I hope you do too. Let me know what you think!

    Great shot! love the b&w tones and decay.

  2. I like the b&w. I need to visit this place.

  3. Oh this is creepy, love these abandoned places! The upside down chair really makes the shot here.

    I’m going to New Orleans this weekend for a trip and am going to try and get into the abandoned six flags where they filmed the last part of Zombieland. I hope I can get in!

    This goes to show you, it’s all about what you choose to focus on that tells the story. Yesterdays shot you really wouldn’t have known it was in this state. Turn around or walk a few yards though…

    Really cool black and white, keep it up!

  5. Ness says:

    This is really good in black and white. Great shot.

  6. Ryan Sexton says:

    Great composition Jason, I like the lines, the roof, floor tiles, even the counter and walls.

  7. Chris Nitz says:

    Love the B/W and creep factor on this shot. I don’t think anyone will be buying that chair anytime soon though.

  8. Love the conversion! Great shot.

  9. Jim Nix says:

    great comp and the BW works great, well done Jason!

  10. B&W just can’t be beat for the drama it introduces, and this photo is an absolute perfect example of such! Really love it Jason, perfect composition and perspective!

  11. Now this shot makes the dog track look abandoned! Love the B&W.

  12. At first I was going to suggest a tighter crop but the more I look at it the more I think it works great just as. The empty space on the right and prominent floor show off how decrepit this place is. Love the b&w as well.

  13. I’m kind of with Jesse. The image didn’t blow me away at first, and I was trying to come up with a useful suggestion, but as I kept doing that the more I liked it.

  14. Dave DiCello says:

    This looks outstanding in B&W, I really like the composition, all the negative space is perfect. Looks like it could have been taken any time in the last 50 years.

  15. Scott Webb says:

    I really like the placement of the sign that says “furniture.”

    Very nice.

  16. Jimi Jones says:

    This image has a wonderful “throw-back” feel to it. Seems it could have been taken many years ago. Nice one.

  17. Rob says:

    Not all photos can be lovely flowers, landscapes or portraits. We need something different to view. I find urban decay and abandonment images to be a visual sensation. The stark contrasts of infrastructure built and destruction. Open space where at one time a useful space. your image tells a story where we wonder what happened and why.
