This past weekend the Mr. and I grabbed a couple cameras and took a short drive to the amazing (and mostly abandoned) Mare Island military shipyard in Vallejo for a just-for-fun photoshoot.

Gorgeous tree lined streets surround everything from massive abandoned brick warehouses, grand white mansions, frightening apartments with doors swinging in the wind, and grey weapons bunkers just steps away from one of the quaintest little churches you've ever seen. I'm sure we'll be heading back again because as I'm typing this I'm realizing all the shots I didn't get a chance to take.
