“Posted: NO TRESPASSING” – February 14, 2009
Fellow bubbler accompanied me to Reno Nevada for the Hot August Night festivities. On the way home on Highway 80 we found this abandoned house.

Its safe to say that I will never learn my lesson going into places like this. The last dilapidated shoot we did costed me a months worth of bad luck. I took a room key I found at the location.

Bad Luck List all in July 2008:
Lcd Tv went out (Not Lamp)
Speeding ticket $276
Catalytic Converter Stolen $167
I got Diagnosed with Vertigo
My Job cut my Hours
My Daughter got Roseola

Coincidence? Maybe, but just to be safe I drove all the way back to Reno Nevada (2.5 Hours) Threw the Key and did a dance, Actually I just returned the key and now everything seems fine.

    Great shot, just have to watch your step in these places, never know when a hole will open up under your feet. xxxx

    Got that right Amarica! Of course fellow bubble (Jnisbet) kinda got upset with me cuz I scared him on his way out of the house. I know kinda childish but I just couldnt resist!

    it gives me the feeling that this room is ‘everything’ and that when you’re in there, the outside is no longer real. That window backs this feeling up.

  • Fellow bubbler jnisbet had that feeling also Light, which is why he didnt notice me hiding behind the wall waiting to scare him!
