Swordbearer's Reflection

My friend Jarrod discovered an abandoned home in Watertown, CT where he just recently moved this past year. We often grab props and do photo shoots in places like this. Jarrod brought his sword and I thought these pillars were a fitting place to use this, while shooting we noticed the reflection in the water and it evoked a mythical feeling. These explorations into abandoned buildings often feel like like mythic adventures, piecing together the stories of the past in these forgotten places.
