Make sure you read all the text! Tells the story behind these photos.
So, basically these photos were taken at a typical set of a horror movie (pretty much a demolished, abandoned house in a place we had never been before). We watch so many horror movies, that in my head it seemed like something bad was going to happen to us. I was on edge the entire time we were at this property, so i'm surprised we got good photos! In a lot of the in between shots I looked like I was going to pee my pants. I had the most troubled expression on my face. I kept expecting someone to run out with a knife or hold us captive because we were trespassing where they were squatting.
Towards the end of shooting, two cars rocked up. I was stressing out- because it's not a place to hang out at all, but they looked like they were setting up camp. They parked behind our car and started beeping their horn. I kept saying to Jonathan, "what are they gonna do?". I think I was just assuming the worst because I already had a picture in my head about this place. It was just strange though because the dudes go out of their cars and went to the boot and then they took their shirts off. I'm thinking to myself, "great they're tough guys and they're mad they can't get past our car, so they're probably reaching for a crow-bar as we speak". In hindsight I know that's pretty ridiculous- but when you're in that environment, your mind thinks up some extraordinary things.
The place was so bloody eerie. You can see the extremity of the the destruction in the photo above. Everything was broken. Graffiti everywhere. I guess this proves the "broken window effect" to be a fact. It's just weird to think someone has just abandoned a house in a not so secluded area. It's only a 20 minute drive west of the Gold Coast.
This whole outfit post was such an adrenaline rush. On the drive home, I was saying how exciting and awesome the experience was. It's funny how your brain does that, you can be scared one minute, but as soon as you're removed from the situation it becomes a great encounter. Though, having said that I'm in no rush to get back to the house.
The funny thing is- the dudes that rocked up are probably telling a similar story. "There were a guy and chick at the house when we rocked up. The girl was in this pretty pink dress, high heels and some sort of floral head wear. Who wears that in the middle of no where, not to mention at an abandoned house? I think she was a touch over dressed". "And why was they guy following her with a camera".
Yesterday was the best day I have ever had. Was a really, really busy day but it was so awesome. I went op shopping, went to Bunnings, went shopping, got some wrays, went for a drive, shot these, went out for dinner, go drunk, walked home in the rain. Positive, happy energy all round!
Hope you all had a super rad weekend.
Happy Valentines Day!
