I passed the other day with my children by the Library in Homestead, Florida on Campbell Drive and US 1. As I entered the building I noticed a photograph displayed on one of the walls. It got my attention because it was the image of a famous landmark here in South Florida. It turns out that this building had been added to the national register of historic places back in the late 70’s. But as I close to the photograph to my surprise I read the name of the artist who captured this image, William Maguire my old photography teacher at Florida International University. His image shows the building when still shined and stood as a solid structure but now it has been totally abandoned and has become the home of chickens and other animals. I took the time a few weeks ago since I live close by to do a study of the building. I was looking for the light early in the morning hitting the wood panels and the beams and such things. As I walked around the building I discovered more and more details, abandoned machinery and wildlife. Here are some of the images from that small trip of discovery.
