I really like how the protagonist is motivated by thoughts of wealth and fame throughout this story. It honestly just rings true to me, I feel like a person who goes to an abandoned site like that with a camera really would react that way. I especially like how they are a bit at war with themself over it too.

Then, during the horror of the fortune being told, I think the silence from the photographer really amped up the feelings of helplessness and dread. The internal thoughts being shared provided a good tension building counter beat, kept us as the reader checked in, but still felt like helpless silence.

There have been so many really excellent touches like that throughout your story, really fantastic to read.
