Finally found a good time to slip inside the abandoned naval base at Hunters Point, and it was worth the wait. Some shots from the photo excursion:
barracks
Approaching building 600, a former barracks at the southeast tip of Hunters Point. The shipyard is the most toxic place in San Francisco, so I didn’t want to spend much time in this cesium-polluted wasteland. It took some serious problem solving to get inside this building, but it was worth it.
building 600
The building itself is a gutted shell filled with broken glass, empty lockers and ratty old mattresses.

relic

I’m not sure what this building was, but now it’s a photogenic relic of Phnom Penh’s days as the Pearl of Asia. It’ll probably be restored soon, but I kind of like it as is. Seen a block west of Sisowath Quay near the Royal Palace.

fortune teller

Fortune teller along Sisowath Quay. There’s a small stretch along the waterfront where fortune tellers huddle around candles and dim fluorescent lamps, reading cards and palms for a small fee. Very low light, iso 3200. Managed to salvage what looked like a terrible shot into something a little more interesting. Still too much noise though.
