As promised…. Celebration Station in Memphis, TN.

I know that it’s not an abandoned theme park, but it’s the closest there is to it in Memphis.

The first photo is part of the go-kart track. It’s a simple figure eight, with a bridge. Nothing major.

I really wish that they had left the mini-golf course intact… it would have made it that much creepier. The mini-golf section used to have a windmill, a couple of bridges, and a few other things.

The building on the property is boarded up very well. The only way in is to break down a steel door, or smash in the glass front doors. I want to get into the building, but I’m not going to prison to do it. 

If there are any of my followers who know of any good abandoned theme parks within 115 miles of Memphis, TN… LET  ME  KNOW!

I’m not in a position to travel a lot, but I can hunt something down close.

A Visit to Berlin’s Abandoned Spreepark

To view more photos and videos from Spreepark, explore the Spreepark Berlin / Kulturpark Plänterwald location page.

Just outside Berlin lies Spreepark, an abandoned East German amusement park. Kulturpark Plänterwald, later known as Spreepark, opened in 1969 and at its peak was host to over a million visitors a year. In 2001, however, only 400,000 people visited the park and it was closed down the following year.

Today, locals and tourists alike risk the trespassing fine to view and capture Spreepark’s headless dinosaur sculptures, roller coaster cars filled with leaves and Ferris wheel that spins slowly in the wind. Maxim Mestovsky (@mestovsky), a user experience designer from Minsk, Belarus, recently visited Spreepark on a trip to Berlin and shared his experience on Instagram. “You have to take a train through a mountain and over a lake then climb a fence to get into the park, but when you do, it’s beautiful,” he says. “The old Ferris wheel creaks, abandoned boats are strewn about. I don’t understand why they don’t sell tickets still! Maybe that’s the charm of the park.”

This has me thinking….

There is an abandoned mini-golf, go-kart, & bumper boat thing here in Memphis!

I’m going to go take photos of that today, before I head back to Savannah!

Wish me luck!

You’ll see some photos of that tomorrow!

Little Girl’s Beauty Pageant….

This past Saturday night I stepped out on a limb… 

I took a gig for something I’ve never shot before, a little girl’s beauty pageant!

I merely did groups and individuals, but those dresses make things complicated. Let’s go from a medium complected girl in a medium red dress, then straight into a pale white girl in a pale blue dress… WHOAH… light change! lol

All joking aside. These kids were some of the most well behaved of all the events I’ve ever shot. Not a single one of them was whiney, disobedient, or uncooperative.

I really hope to shoot more beauty pageants!

I may have to display some of the photos, once I’m done editing.
