The Royal Inn is out!

ROYAL7

I love abandoned hotels! They’re not easy to find but today when I was dropping off my prints to be displayed at the Copper Vault in Springfield, TN (Feb 1st-28th) I found one right on a main strip! After dropping off my work I swung by the Royal Inn a decrepit hotel sitting on the side of the road with it’s paint fading and various doors standing ajar.

I didn’t have my Canon with it’s wide angle lens but I did have my Fuji  X-E1 on me. I hopped out of my car and did a quick recon shoot, I may end up going back later in Feb but for now I hope you enjoy these.

I walked under the car port and peered inside the front door, sadly it was firmly locked. Still I have faith sooner of later the glass door will be shattered. I moved along to the wings of the Royal Inn and was not disappointed with their look.

Did I go into any of the rooms? Not too far, I’m taking my own advice about the buddy system. But here are a few shots from an interior or two.
