We wrap up our latest photoblog series “The Toad And The Lodge” which takes us on an adventure together exploring Tillicum Lodge, an abandoned facility in Victoria, BC, Canada. Closed now for over 17 years, the ravages of time and Mother Nature are evident on this lost place and we finish off our series with some final parting photographs and thoughts on both the facility itself, as well as some metaphors on a grander scale for life itself. Please join us at “Echoes Of Our Elders” to see all 7 final HDR images in the series, and to read the story behind them.

Today I picked another of my photos I took around the Louvre in Paris. It was my first time with the wide angle lens in Paris and this pyramid is great for this kind of lens:).

As we continue to explore Tillicum Lodge, now abandoned for over 17 years, we come around the back of the facility to the service and maintenance area. All the courtyards to the separate lodges are now nearly completely overgrown, and the silence is truly deafening as we continue our shoot. It won’t be long now before the entire facility disappears unless some drastic measures are taken as the harsh climate takes it’s toll on the building. We believe we may have even found the exit to the morgue, and this shot is posted in today’s post. This continues our latest photoblog series “The Toad And The Lodge“. Please feel free to visit today’s blog post “The Overgrown Courtyard” to see all 9 new HDR images posted and for the story behind them.
