Rookies Sports Bar – Stuart, Florida

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

Rookies Sports Bar is located right next to Bubba’s Fish Camp. Just like Bubba’s Fish Camp, Rookies is also closed. Must not be a great area for restaurants. This building has the same old abandoned look to it as well. I love all the textures of the aged metal and molded paint. There is something about decay that adds so much character to a building. To bad Florida has a lack of decaying buildings or else I’d be posting more of these types of photographs.
