Although I quit photographing and exploring abandoned places after my disappointment with the quality of my photos, I never lost interest towards the world of the abandoned. When I decided to spend the new year in the same city where I made a road trip the previous summer, it was clear where I would go.
The same building, which housed a hotel, restaurant and movie theater, was still standing despite the demolition threat looming over it. The city was drawing a new detail plan, and so far it was unclear, what the officials would propose.
I hoped of course, that it would be preserved. But the fact that I never even thought about finding a way in, was pretty telling about my attitude back then.
