Shot in an abandoned factory (built in the late 1800's) I noticed a doorway, glowing with a sinister light from behind. In a pitch black hallway, the faint glow and graffiti begged to be captured. I later returned with fellow photographer Brian Styles to set up the shot.

This doorway also holds particular significance to me, as I was trapped here once while gang members searched the ruins for me (they heard me setting up a shot). For 45 minutes I waited as they swept the area for me, safe at least in the blackness of the depths. Eventually I drew my gun and made a strategic retreat from the factory - and vowed to not return solo again.

Enjoy my final piece from this factory, simply named "The Door".
