Bringing kinja into focus, one frame at a time

Coming at you live from a parking garage in downtown Pittsburgh (it’s a long story), it’s another photo of the day!


This photo is from an abandoned theater, which I’ve posted about before. On the day I was here the battery in my K1000 was dead and I was using my phone to meter my shots. Not the most optimal solution but when you’ve been shooting for a while you learn to adapt.


What’s not obvious here is how dark this room was. Being a theater it’s obviously supposed to be dark, but with the power to the building cut and only a few open doors in the massive hall providing light, it was DARK. I had to leave the shutter open for a minute to capture this shot.
