Exploring Whittier Alaska's abandoned Buckner Building (GR)
2

Whittier Is a strange little town in Alaska. It is very near Anchorage but until recently you had to take a train to get through the mountain to Whittier. It is a strange isolated place. Almost the entire town lives in one enormous building, witch they all moved into when there previous even more enormous building was condemned. That building was called the Buckner Building witch is one of the coolest abandoned buildings out there. I Decided to drive out there today and photograph it with my new Ricoh GR. It was a radical decision to leave the Nikon DSLR gear at home. After all I did not buy the Ricoh to replace my Nikon gear on shoots. I bought so I could have camera with me all the time. To go all the way to Whittier with just a pocket camera seemed pretty nuts. But I had a good time shooting there and I got some great shots
