Rochestersubway.com was first brought to my attention when I saw the University of Rochester’s Lost Swimming Pool article posted on social media. The photos were so beautiful and haunting that I was inspired to explore more on the site.
I was just starting to get into urban exploring and Rochestersubway.com showed me amazing locations in Rochester that I had never heard of. So I started to use the website as a reference for new places to explore…
In my exploration of Rochester, I recently found these abandoned cars in the Four Mile Creek Preserve trails in Webster.
I found out that the town purchased these 72 acres in 2004 under the open space referendum. Still a mystery on where the cars came from. They have bullet holes in them and there is a bunch of glass and trash through out the trails.
For these photos, I wanted a dreamlike effect and I hoped smoke bombs would help me achieve this. I have seen smoke bombs used in other artist’s photographs so I had an idea of the effect they would create.
