Abandoned Train

This is probably one of the scariest places that I've been with my camera. It is an abandoned and boarded up passenger train on the outskirts of downtown Shreveport Louisiana. I entered the train late in the day so that sunlight would be shining through the windows and make an interesting photograph. I found out after entering, that this passenger car is inhabited by people that don't have a place to live. The floor was covered with feces, syringes, broken liquor bottles and crack vials. It was hot and and the smell of the place was unbelievably awful. I knew I would never come back to this place so I made sure that I got a photo that captured the feel of this place. As I left, I noticed that people were watching me from a distance and waiting for the intruder to leave their "house".
