This was one of the highlights of the recent trip to Italy. I knew after seeing several images of this room that it would be awesome to create a 360 here. I wasn't going to post this image as I'm not happy with it on SO many levels, but decided in the end that it [...]
Another wheelchair from Hospital C - there were loads of these about and I am sure its not the last one I'll put up from here. This was pretty much the penultimate shot that I took at this location, and was a bit rushed. The initial image wasn't well composed and somewhat wonky so I [...]
This is the image that I went out on Sunday to capture. There's not much to say about it apart from I'm very happy. It's a testament to planning really, I knew what I wanted, where to shoot and that there would be little in the way of either pedestrian or vehicular traffic at night [...]
Another from my Sunday evening out. This is a three shot panorama, each made up of 9 brackets and processed through Photomatix. The building is often confused with The Bank of England which it to the left of this structure. This is the third Royal Exchange built on this spot. From Wikipedia : The third [...]
Here's the external area at The Atlas Hotel in Casablanca. Its not the best hotel in the world, but close to the airport so convenient. My room was clean and functional, so I was happy to lay my bags down and stay a couple of nights.
I now have three strobes and associated stands and softboxes I've been messing about with them quite a bit. Viveca asked me to take some pictures of her and Jasper the cat. He's pretty old so Viveca wanted to get some decent pics of him and her together. This was actually quite a challenge, The [...]
On the way back from Luxembourg we detoured through France to visit a derelict industrial compound that was due to be flattened. there were still a few buildings left, this one in particular held what we had come to see. The artist of the insect like beings is IEMZA. There's a lot of work gone [...]
Hidden under the Dartmoor turf is this little urbex gem. Its a disused pumping house. The second visit for me, first time it wasn't this damp. I was expecting there to be a little water, however I wasn't expecting it to be 18 inches plus deep. I shou8ld have taken my waders! There is very [...]
This was the part of the hospital that I came to see, I'd seen several images of this bendy corridor before and was keen to find it for myself. There are not that may locations with curved corridors, so I was glad to open the door and stumble right into it. I can only assume [...]
Here's a not unusual urbex room - windows broken, metal removed and false ceiling collapsed. This was also very wet with water dripping everywhere including all over my camera, not ideal, but I had to get the shot! Another location in the hospital that I wasn't really too fussed about and If I remember correctly [...]
On the way back from Cornwall we stopped off at a 'nice' hospital that I'd found out about. Initially I wasn't too impressed and on return to the PC after uploading and looking at my shots i really wasn't expecting much from this set at all.Viveca and I didn't spend too long at the location [...]
Terres Rouge is a huge derelict industrial area just inside Luxembourg, so called as the earth is red. I'm not sure what these silos were for, but I suspect that they were holding coal or ore ready to be taken somewhere. I'm not all that au fait with the mining / washing and shipping process.
The tool makers was covered - wall to wall on all floors with cupboards and cubby holes where product would have been stored. There must have been some very knowledgeable people here who could actually manage to find things quickly.The floor all over is covered in pigeon poo! The image is processed with photomatix for [...]
Our trips to Sheffield weren't all hunting for cool graf in the city. We had another location to try and search out. The tool makers was established here in the 1860's and closed around 10 years ago. The owners manufactured tools for cutting of leather and tools for making shoes. The location was very [...]
Really quick post before heading out to the woods for the weekend. Here's the main entrance into the research facility.
The farmhouse itself was quite unremarkable. nothing left inside and little decay, I would suggest that the place is pretty watertight and until fairly recently locked down. Now however there appear to be several entrances that are not challenging at all. There was a neat PIR system in place but this seems to have been [...]
In one of the farms wings there were three rooms, light and airy with large windows overlooking the spaces. One of the room was filled with what can only be called 'junk' however there were two chairs that stood out and us urbexers all like a chair as a subject. The frosted windows gave a [...]
After a failed attempt at a local location I set my sights on another place not too far from where I live. Buckston Browne Farm isn't exactly a farm, and nor was it ever a farm from what I can tell. This place has a far darker history having been previously used for animal testing. [...]
