Does anyone know where in SD I can find any abandoned structures. I'm a photographer and think empty buildings make for some really scary photos!

I'm looking for literally any buildings or establishment that's been vacant for a while and looks run down.

I would have said the former shopping center on El Cajon Blvd in the CA (College Area) but it was just piles of rubble that are supposedly being cleaned up...maybe somewhere out east? I remember once seeing some abandoned cabins out in Palomar. Also try East County and maybe Mid City- lots of structures and probably some abandoned ones given the current economic situation.

There's a Phillies Cheese Steak On University near College that appears to have been closed for some time. It is surrounded by chain link fence so I don't know if that would mess up your image.

There are abandoned resorts at the Salton Sea.

Rolando Rubble pile is being cleaned up.

There are two derelict fast food places on University and College.

Pernicanos in Hillcrest, but you can't get in.

Pearson Ford is demoed and being cleaned up.

The Ford dealer at the 15 and El Cajon Boulevard is empty but mostly maintained.

There is an abandoned school structure next to the church on College a bit south of Streamview.

They are all over, you need to look carefully.
