There was a lot more damage than what I had imagined there would be. Amina had explained that her childhood home had exploded, thankfully no one was inside or near it at the time At first, we were ALL  skeptical of entering, the dilapidation was real! We weren't sure if the floors were stable enough walk on, there looked to be a  possibility of small animals hiding in the many visible crevices, and I am not fond of surprises, but we had to get the shots we needed. There was no away I was leaving this location without getting those Interior shots, so I had to bite the bullet. Amina led the way and Sayvon and I followed behind. After about 10 minutesor so of being inside the fear subsided, a little. The visual appeal of this house was alluring, and It was the awe that helped me to relax and really absorb what I was seeing. It was interesting to see how this fire had transformed  this house into an entirely new space . It was like we had walked into nature or some sort of mythical cave.

      The fire createdthese really intriguing textures throughout. For me, it were the walls that stole the show. The walls gave the space this eerie cave-like vibe. I am unsure if it was plasterboard, MFD, or fiber cement, whatever  the material, it did not look or feel as though it was  stable enough to  hold the frame of this house together. Aside from the dark
