DURING THIS TRIP I WAS CAPTIVATED BY SYMMETRY AND PATTERNS
I like spending my weekend afternoons in cold warehouses filled with incessant rows of old doors, antique bathtubs, rusted radiators, crumbling stair parts, and fireplace mantels
A SUN-LIT COLUMN ON THE SECOND FLOOR
THE BRIGHT WINDOW WALL
WALL OF FENCES AND GATES
ROWS OF TOILETS
OLD COLUMNS ON THE SECOND FLOOR
NEVER-ENDING LITTLE DRAWERS
ROWS OF OLD RADIATORS OUTSIDE
METAL LATTICE BARS ON THE WINDOW
A BANISTER POLE
A BRASS KNOB
While I am there I like to spend unnecessarily long hours photographing them, capturing their patterns and locating their unperceivable beauty. My last such excursion was to a magical place called The Brass Knob Backdoors Warehouse, one of my favorite places in the world to spend cold sunny afternoons. You will find so many treasures there, none of which you will have any use for, you will also find several friendly cats, and some very very special subjects to photograph.
Unfortunately if you want to go there your friends will think you are strange and they won’t want to drive to the outskirts of the city to stare at old doors and freeze their butts off. Unless you have a friend like me
UPDATE: Unfortunately The Brass Knob Warehouse no longer exists. They do still have a store in Adam’s Morgan.
