Fort Tilden Photoblogging

15 comments January 20th, 2007at 06:11pm Posted by Eli

After having passed through Jacob Riis Park, I arrived at now-abandoned Fort Tilden, hoping to take pictures of abandoned, decrepit stuff, and maybe some bunkers. But I found more. A lot more.

Opposite directions.

Reflection in a puddle.

This probably qualifies as some kind of flag desecration, but oh well.

    Those bottom guys aren’t seals, they’re those thingees from Slither.

    “What kind of a thing *wants* you to hump it???”

    Nice place you have here.

    Be a shame if something happened to it.

    Excellent new look!

    Getting away from blogger was the best thing I ever did. I hope the move works out as well for you too.

    100% better.
    But what are those things in the bottom picture? It kind of bothers me that I dont know what they are.

    Very elegant, these new quarters. Hope you can afford the rent.

    Wow! Beatiful place Eli. Congrats on your move.

    very nice.

    i like the flag shot, the puddle too.

    did you shoot the site banner? that’s nice too. ooh, and i see it changes, fancy shmancy.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Drano, I’m not entirely sure what those things are. Fort Tilden had an arts center, and those were in its backyard.

    And charley, of course the banner shots are mine. The lettering will be tweaked a little bit – it needs either color or something to make it a little more robust.

    Nice digs, Eli. Sorry I couldn’t help with the move and all, but, you know, my back..

  • 15. Eli  |  January 22nd, 2007 at 1:03 pm

    Heh. Thanks anyway, op.
