Private Parking Street Photography Kyle Troop

Nikon D750 with a Nikkor 35mm AIS f2.

Private parking garage street photography by Kyle Troop. Taken with a Nikon D750 on a moody cloudy day around downtown Cartersville. The storefronts of downtown are nice. But the spots out back are where to find the coolest views.

Move-In Special

Move-In Special. First and last month's rent to make this place your very own. It's a little drafty and you'll have to fight with the opossums for the use of the porch. And pay no mind to the empty mobile home lots around the yard, with this place you'll be park...

Nice Stems

Nice Stems

This peculiar spot is on the way to Blueprint Coffee. Sitting at the red light, there's a great view of the building on stilts. It's pulls my attention every single time. I happened to catch it mid afternoon one weekend and had a roll of film to finish up. So I pulled...

Ran When Parked

Ran When Parked

Riding around Cartersville early one morning and passed by this staple. When it's open, there's rarely a parking spot open in the tiny lot. That doesn't discourage many. These were taken with a Nikon FE on Lomography Color 400.  I'll have a Mexicali to go, and a sweet...

It's like a Transplants song just writing itself in the parking lot of this pawn shop. I was out riding around intentionally looking to burn some film. But I didn't expect to come upon this gem. The "Absolutely No Profanity" sign was the cherry on top. Taken with a...

Closed This Week

Closed This Week

I often find myself riding around the roads and areas of where I grew up. If there's an hour or two with nothing going on, I'll be grabbing a camera and my keys. This time I headed up highway out of town when I spotted this one. I've seen the building for years. But a...

El Camino Out in the Wild

El Camino Out in the Wild

Didn't expect to see a rad El Camino in front of a skate shop on a random Saturday afternoon in Mt. Airy, North Carolina. But I did. And I had a camera. So here we are. Taken with a Nikon FE 35mm on Kodak Portra 400. 

When In Metropolis

When In Metropolis

After passing by the signs for Metropolis, IL a good handful of times, I decided to check it out on my way to St. Louis. Traffic earlier in the day kept me from getting there in time to go to the Super Museum before it closed. But the town was cool and the World's...

No Unauthorized Dumping

No Unauthorized Dumping

If I drive past this spot, I'm stopping to take a photo. Couldn't tell you how many photos I have of this place. Every time I find a new detail that wasn't there before. So much activity for a tiny abandoned building in a wide open gravel lot.  Some of these are taken...

The Park and HP5

The Park and HP5

Summer mornings in the south are the best time to get out while the humidity is still low enough to not immediately fog up my camera. On this late summer morning I took the opportunity. Grabbed a Nikon FM and a roll of Illford HP5+ to take with me. I'm not very sports...
