Photojournalism Project

My photojournalism project is going to cover urban decay in Ybor City. Urban Decay is exactly what you think it is. Abandoned buildings surrounded by an overgrowth of plants and disrepair. Ybor City has a lot of things going for it, but there are quite a lot of abandoned buildings in Ybor. There’s even a few where the planned baseball stadium that I want to cover before they vanish.

Now of course I won’t be breaking into the buildings. First of all, I don’t want damage property. Second, I don’t want to be arrested for trespassing when all I wanted was to take photos. I do know there is the burnt Ybor Spa building that I want to cover. There is quite a lot of history behind it and allegations of hauntings behind it. I know I want to cover that. However, there has been some stuff going on with the building. Some are saying it may get demolished and others are saying that it’s going to be restored. I’m not sure what will happen to the building, but I want to be there before something happens.

  1. I love this idea. I have a weird fascination with abandoned buildings. I think there’s so much history behind it. I would love to go into them, but of course that is illegal. I am excited to see your pictures, I hope you decide to share them on here.
