Abandonment: Old Military Building - Mojave, California

Hope Through Brokenness - Mojave, California
The Mojave Air And Space Port in Mojave, California, was once a Marine base. It was officially called Marine Corps Auxiliary Air Station Mojave, and it was open from 1941 to 1953. There are some remnants of the old base that still remain.

On the south side of the airport one will find an old boarded-up structure that is abandoned. Nearby are some foundations to some long-forgotten buildings. These were once a part of the base, but now sit outside of the fenced-in airport property. 

The structure isn't much to look at--it is a very plain building. It is securely boarded up and there's no interior access. I stopped by the old place mid-day, and the lighting was less than ideal. Even so, I still managed to create some interesting photographs.

I used a Nikon D3300 DSLR with a 55-200mm lens. Post-processing was done using Alien Skin Exposure 6.
