A pinhole adventure in Centralia 

Travel and Other Adventures

Yesterday I met up with some pinhole photography buddies in Centralia, WA. Half of us came from Portland and the other half Seattle. Centralia is a good halfway point for our group. We ended up at an abandoned slaughterhouse. It was a fun place to shoot and I hope to go back! Here are a few iPhone snaps.

i walked through a very scary dark room by myself to get to the stairs that led here

Unfortunately my pinhole shots probably did not come out. I realized too late I was metering for paper and a different camera on my Pinhole Assist app. ­čśŽ

Yesterday Raf and I were driving to lunch and we decided to check out an abandoned building that has captured our attention. It’s enormous and mysterious, with it’s broken windows and multiple floors.

As we wandered around we thought that maybe it was some sort of dog racing track. Eventually a security guard politely chased us away before we ventured inside the building. Probably a good thing.

Doing a quick google, I’ve learned that this is the Multnomah Greyhound Park. When we were there there were cars parked in front. We asked the security guard about them and he said that they were looking at it for demolition. He said that the site was going to be used for a casino.

I am so sad that I didn’t have my pinhole camera with me! This could have been a Pinhole Obscura post. Damn it! Well lesson learned. Never leave the house without my pinhole camera!
