I started going to the Abandoned Miami Marine Stadium when I first moved here about 7 years ago. It was such a cool place to hang out at.
At the time this place was wide open, meaning only taggers, photographers, film makers and very few people went to it. It was an epic place to hang out at. I have lots of great memories of this incredible place.
This was a venue where they held boat races and other awesome events. It was the first one of its kind and a beautiful stadium to say the least.
The Miami Marine Stadium was damaged by hurricane Andrew in 1992, and it never reopened its doors. It is such a shame because it is such a beautiful place in an incredible location.
Multiple people have attempted to raise money to fix the place and reopen it, but nothing has happened.
They have built a fence around the place and have a full-time security guard on duty now. Making it impossible to get in. It’s a shame that the place is completely off-limits to everyone. It was such a great place for creatives around the world.
I was digging through some hard drives to find some fireworks photos for yesterdays post and I ran into these photos from 7 years ago.
I can remember this exact day, I was driving across Florida when I ran into this abandoned place. It was massive and I had go get in through a small hole on the fence. It turns out the building was empty, but it was still cool to shoot and explore for a bit.
After finding some old paper work it turns out this was a packing company from 1968. Crazy to think about what happened or why it closed.
What is even crazier is that I found these photos along with some other cool folders that I will be posting later on.
This is a very old photo I shot back in 2010 when I was first getting into photography. I remember I really didn’t know what I was doing, I just wanted to shoot. A couple of my friends and I went into this abandoned place in Reno Nevada and hung out there all day. I took lots of shot but this is one of my favorites. How time flies…
When I heard that Boomers was coming down, I had to take a trip there to photograph it. What you see below are photos from three different trips, shot from a helicopter and the oldschool way walking around with my camera.
This type of places always creep me out, but this one was not that creepy, it was just kind of sad how operations just stoped and the place kind of just stood empty for a long time in hopes that someoene would purchase it and keep it going.
I managed to climb up the roller coaster and that was super scary, it got so steap and hard to walk that I had a baby panic attack, but it didn’t latst long. I usually never post so many photos, but in this case as with all my other abandoned photo series I thought I would give you lots to look at.
People tell me that this was the happening spot back in the day, did you ever come here? Id love to hear some sotries. If you visited it drop me a line on the comments below.
