Where I was born and raised definitely inspires and influences my subject matter for my photography. I have always been attracted to photographing misplaced and abandoned items in my favorite places, such as orchards or near my favorite spots in downtown Modesto. Although some might find these abandoned buildings and objects to depreciate their surroundings, I find they add character to the environment. This 35mm b&w film series is a record of my journey throughout some of those favorite places and the engaging textures that accompany them.
