I keep finding images from our dog track visit back in December that I haven’t processed, so I took a bit of time this week to blaze through a few.
I love this place. The scene above was so indicative of the current deterioration of the structure. It was also interesting how all these foreground seats were places on the outside of the facility and now it’s almost like the entire place is “outside.”
The first thing we talked about when we got near the windows was that we should all steer clear of them…because those shards aren’t just small bits of glass, but huge pieces that I would assume could take your head off if they dropped directly on you.
I automatically had a desire to stand next to and look through these windows, so I had to make sure I kept reminding myself to keep away.
This scene has a very post-apocalyptic feel to it for me. Chairs falling in disrepair, vegetation growing all over, the fact that everything just feels out in the open now. At one point in my life (and it may still happen), I had planned on writing a book that would take place in a future where people hadn’t really lived on the planet for a couple hundred years.
Things would likely be way worse than this, but it might be a scene I’d use to describe the way things were.
