Where do I even start? This is easily the most amazing place I've ever had the pleasure of visiting and/or photographing. It literally blew me away.
Long-story-short, I went on a little weekend getaway to Monterey Bay with a friend of mine. She used to go to school up there. She says "hey, you like abandoned places, there's an abandoned military base by my old college." I'm like "ok", but I was thinking it would probably be super lame and/or impossible to get in to. Boy was I wrong...
We roll up to the campus, and immediately I'm in shock. There are abandoned buildings EVERYWHERE. As far as the eye can see almost. I didn't even know where to start shooting! The most amazing part of it is there is a fully-functioning college amidst all this abandoned military infrastructure. Here's this super modern library, right next to a bunch of defunct barracks. Seriously unbelievable. Ok, let's get on with the photos.
2.) Inside one of the buildings pictured above. Seriously pitch black in there, I was very nervous at first but I got more and more comfortable with it.
6.) This room gave me the creeps. Paint everywhere.
Here is the full set from that weekend.
We went back twice. I would have needed a LOT more time than that to explore everything. Another thing that shocked me about this place was the fact that we were basically allowed to roam free, no one hassled us the entire time, and there were security cars rolling around all over the place. It was like I died and went to urban exploration heaven. Haha.
