This building (which one served as a gym) remained untouched, almost 5 years after Hurricane Katrina.
In most parts of the building it was completely dark. I don't think I ever went below ISO 3200 (it was usually on 6400), and my shutter speed was usually lower than 1/60. Sometimes I put it down to 1/8.
I didn't have a tripod either, so the photographs are not very crisp. Because of the lack of light, some times I had no idea what I was taking a picture of or where I was aiming. I was just trying to document, rather than create good images.
I think they speak for themselves..
This is what was caked all over the floor:
There are countless buildings, and homes, that are still remaining in this "un-gutted" state.
