The ruins of a motel are north of Seattle, a hundred feet SE of this google maps pushpin. I had seen it while traveling southbound on I-5 for years, and always meant to go check it out. The sign had said, “Back in 2000!” for a long time.
Here’s a screen grab from Bing maps (helpfully out of date) of the motel in better times:The only thing left standing is the upper left building.
On Saturday I headed out there with some friends, and 3 cameras:
A Konica autofocus point & shoot, a Canon G-III QL and a Yashica Electro 35. It was a cloudy day, so I was shooting some fast film. One roll was ISO 400, but the others were 1600 and 3200. I knew it would be grainy.
I can’t remember which camera shot which shots.
Usually I let my scanner automatically color correct, but this time I didn’t. I like the results.
After this, we went to the abandoned dairy.
One thought on “3 cameras and a burned motel”
I can see why you wanted to check this out. I wonder how so much of it burned, when there were big gaps between buildings. Deliberate perhaps.
