The Fall of Hurcules

A little URBEX for today.  This is the gutted out shell of what was once the Hercules Motor Company in downtown Canton Ohio, now due to misfortune it is out of business. The building was vacated in 1999 and now it sits empty, 600,000 square feet of world war 2 era brick buildings. There is a private developer that currently is planning on renovating the structures into an apartment complex, but this is not the first such idea so we will wait and see.

Kind of sad seeing a big huge complex like this sitting vacant, but at least it makes for a good subject to shoot some inside urbex, the lighting in this place was really cool.

This was 9 bracketed exposures captured with the promote control and processed in Photomatix.

Thanks for stopping!

Have a great weekend
