Interesting Spaces

Sometimes you find yourself in an interesting spot.

Here we were exploring the powerplant at Oak Knoll Naval Hospital.

The boilers were nice and crusty, peely brick and rusty.

Found a door that opened and decided that light painting would be fun.

so i set up a remote speedlight just inside the door way to light interior, and painted exterior w flashlight.

Unfortunately when i reached to get it, i managed to knock it over and it dropped down inside the boiler itself.

Leaning in to try to reach it i discovered that the opening was just wide enough for my body…

So I wiggled thru to get my speedlight, then looked about and realized what a cool space!

so decided to paint some more, with gels on my flashlight.

had my wingman shine a light in the square observation portal on the wall.

It kinda gets lost in my bright lights.

Don’t know what was inside, but it was pretty deep with flakes of some metal…

Fortunately i wore gloves… and a mask…!  😉

Now, would like to learn how these things worked!  Guessing flames came from the round openings, warming the water in the pipes that ran across the wall and ceiling..
