Walking past an abandoned building, I notice that the chain link fence is not secured to the wall and is easily moved aside for entry.  As a long time fan of Reddit.com/r/urbanexploration I have a certain interest in abandoned buildings.  This was the first time I actually snuck into an abandoned building here in Phoenix.  I climbed to the roof to catch a shot of my buddy Greg setting up railroad shots.  It was quiet, slight gusts of wind brushed up against me up there, I saw a few people walking by.  It felt safe on the roof, almost like I was the predator as opposed to feeling like I was the one being watched.

You can see the South Mountain antennas from the ladder rungs on the roof.

Inside the building, we initially entered an empty room with a large puddle and a flood light.  I wanted to get a neat “Taken” shot with the reflection, then quickly thought that this might be my only chance to stand under the spotlight like my hero Arnold did on stage when he won Mr. Olympia back in the day.  Photo credit below goes to my pal Greg.

Setting up shots of the weird mural painted on the back wall.  I think this used to be some kind of theater.
