Some photos from the now defunct Jamestown Mall in north St. Louis. The mall closed for good in July 2014 but had been in decline for years. It was supposed to reinvigorate the area but never caught on because of the location. After it shut down it was broken into quite a bit by urban explorers and others. It is a place I had been wanting to get in to photograph but I didn’t want to trespass. A friend of mine who is also an urban explored got permission for some of us to go in and photograph it before it is finally torn down. It was quite a day to finally see it, but also sad. I will be posting more photos in the coming weeks.
Well, not sure how hungry it was but it had its face pressed against the glass and was staring at me for a few seconds.
A few shots from a walk in the Skinker DeBaliviere neighbourhood with Photo Flood St. Louis.
This poor teddy bear was left for dead along the Mississippi River.
Wonder if they are Air Jordans…
The incredible ceiling inside the Ethical Society of St. Louis. I couldn’t stop staring at it.
Last weekend I was out with Photo Flood STL in the Penrose neighbourhood in St. Louis. It was snowing quite good and just as we were wrapping up things we ended up at an old school that is closed up. This tricycle was sitting outside and I had to get down low to get the shot I wanted.
