Something of interest if you like abandoned sites !
My final post of this year is a strange choice but it happens to be the last shoot I did. Unexpected and without a much needed tripod in the dark insides and with one lens to use this is what I have to show you – these are taken by my daughter Blake and I.
Why are we here?
We have a lovely family in Tucson Arizona USA and we are here now on an end of year visit and this is what we came across.
The abandoned Phoenix Trotting Park:
20 miles from Phoenix – This beauty was built in the 1960s, with high expectations of being a popular venue to see horse racing, the race track was only used for two winter seasons before being abandoned in 1966. It sat unused for more than 30 years before being used in a brief scene in the 1998 Charlie Sheen film called “No Code of Conduct.” Apart from that this huge place has just been sitting there in the sun.
Up for sale if any of you are interested and have $16 million to spare –
