Captains of Industry

I was planning on trying to obtain a street vendor's permit but texted Chris to see what his plan was. His response was, "going for a bike ride and taking photos of industrial sites."

Say no more.

It's been awhile since I did a little B and E. Have to say, it's much more fun with a partner in crime, someone to help fight off sketch balls, take some of the heat from security, and encourage you to go into areas you might stay away from alone.

All in all it was a pretty good day!

These were all taken at a giant strip of Waste Management territory. We didn't enter this building, you could get enough from the outside. As we were preparing to enter, a security guard rolled up on a mountain bike. He was irate. Like in a way that it seemed more like I was taking pictures of his wife in the shower rather than standing on public property and photographing private (clearly abandoned and unused) property. His first question was WERE YOU IN THERE? I said no. Next question, WERE YOU TAKIN PITCHERS OF OUR PROPERTY?! No. I stood for a second, he didn't say anything else so I rode away, realizing that I clearly had a tripod strapped to my bag. Funny how photography is basically a crime if you aren't using an iPhone.

And now, what you all came for....KITTEN PICTURES!


  1. Maybe they should bring kittens to peace talks in the Middle East? I think it could help solve everything.

  2. Skateboarding is not a crime. Uh, I mean photography is not a crime.
