Are you willing to be part of a group where we watch out for each other? Some people are tempted to go off on their own but this is not acceptable because we've wasted time waiting or searching for them. A clear photo of yourself is required.


Can you remain calm in a dark abandoned building? Are you fit enough to run with the group and walk along uneven surfaces if the terrain requires it? If not, you shouldn't join this group.

Yes. I am 63 years old and reasonably fit.

Are you willing to sign a liability release waiver? Not that we do risky meetups but because the areas require alertness and caution. Yes or No.


For new members you must upload 2-5 of your recent photos to the current Members' Photo Album. A visual introduction. You have 8 days to do it or your membership is cancelled. See Discussions tab in menu for directions.


A meetup consist of a field shoot and "social" where we relax at an eatery to show a few of our recent photos. Not a critique but to learn from each others efforts and get in the practice of talking "photography". Comment?

I enjoy all kinds of ruins. One of my favorite experiences was visiting little known, ancient cave paintings in France. Amazing to see how artists incorporated the fissures and bear claw marks on the rocks into their imagery. Thrilling to see 30,000 old images which felt contemporary.


I am an adjunct design professor who likes to paint en plein air (on site, outdoors) and take pictures of decayed, man-made structures.
