Dilapidated? No problem =)

Asim, Tisha, Kristie and I headed to National Park Seminary to have some fun shooting the ruins there. With new condos and homes recently built right on the property, it's very likely this hidden gem will be gone soon. Our cameras & my Flip Mino HD video camera now help preserve its history.

Love your slideshows! I was under the impression that those old buildings were fenced off, but they look like not only is there access but they are right next to the construction! Any idea how much longer they'll be around?

Not sure how long these "ruins" will be around, but there were several new foundations for new homes/condos right in the middle of it all, along with all the new ones already built around it. If I were to guess, it won't be very long when it's all gone.

Very cool videos and pictures, Armin! Looks like you guys had a blast and what a cool documentary for when they're gone!

Armin looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Sorry to have missed all the action! That location is awesome, where exactly is it?
I sure hope they don't tear down those fantastic buildings... that would be a crying shame, but don't get me on my soap box about big builders!!!! GRRRRRR!

Anyway, super images, and love video!!!
