the love of ruins:
In Dec. 2014 I made a trip to my hometown of Cincinnati, OH and stopped by this gunpowder factory. I have many fond memories of riding my bike/rollerblades along the covered railroad tracks that ran along the Little Miami River. I always passed right by this decrepit factory…. for the first time I stopped and actually took a look around and it did not disappoint.
Bucket list: Gun Powder Factory: check.
These pictures look just like the powder factory near my house! Very cool but eerie!
