Whilst at Viveca’s the other day she was looking at her old pictures from Hellingly Asylum, this spurred me to have a look at mine. as this was the first place I went on urbex missions my early¬† images are almost all rubbish, however its a good testament to my perseverance in the craft of photography and shows the journey I’ve been on.

I picked the image below as its nicely composed and shows one of the may pieces of art that were dotted around the place. The artist in this case is Luke da Duke. It still makes me sad to know that this was all flattened very soon after this visit, but that’s progress.

The image is processed in a fairly standard manner, less reliant on filters and a more manual process than I would normally use.
