Life a little Tilt Shifted

Bodiam Castle

Over the years I have been lucky enough to see some amazing places and locations. Some still stand, defying nature to reclaim them, others are now housing estates or Tesco mega stores. I am very much a SOOC person (straight out of camera) – if I had the time and inclination then I guess I’d

Heavy Metal !

On top of a blast furnace in Belgium

Sun rise…sun set..and weekend of opposites..from the amazing sunset from the top of HFb to the freezing gloomy grey sunrise on top of HF6! Both involved..fences,brambles,razor wire,ditches,walls,ladders,slag heaps,mud,tight squeezes and plenty of laughter ! Both involved a long climb to the top! Well worth it for the views! Heavy Metal at its best !

Chateau Noisy

Staircase at Noisy Castle

Delete all your photos ..is what the mad lunatic Belgium kept shouting us after he found us inside this wonderful old house..he was not happy finding us in here ! bloody foreigners…no sense of fair play..we’d just driven 200 miles to get here..walked about 5 miles up and down the valley trying to find the

Stairway to heaven…

A stairway, staircase, stairwell, flight of stairs, or simply stairs..whatever you want to call them..most buildings have them…most abandoned, derelict buildings have amazing sets of stairs! It’s probably one of the most photographed objects in any abandoned building, apart from chairs, but that’s another subject in itself.  From the moment you tread on the first

The Bloody Doors

First explore for a while..it was always going to be an awkward one this..for many reasons! After the usual meet up in some dodgy car park (that’s dodgy not dogging) this time at a more acceptable hour of the day we preceded to advance on our target in the usual ninja style..whilst some of the

Remembrance of things past

remington !

It should come as no surprise really…but after exploring many abandoned decaying houses it still comes as a shock to find so many items left behind by the former occupants. On this occasion a rather grand house decaying on a pretty busy well-kept Belgium street in a small town..the usual antics ensued to get in…but

Derelict Dungeness

Fishing Boat at Dungeness

Abandoned..decayed..derelict..not the sort of things you’d expect to find on a Nature Reserve! Take a trip down to Dungeness on the South Coast and you’ll have an mazing day, whatever the weather, day or night. The beach and foreshore are littered with abandoned fishing boats all in various state of decay. A number of old fishing

The Dark Side of Sunday

The Dark Side

It was one of those Sunday mornings today! Rain, mist, fog, generally dull and the creative juices really were not on their full flow! Decided to whizz out to an old abandoned world War 2 bunker for a bit of messing about with Chloe. So armed with tripods, cameras and lots of things to ignite

Urban Exploring

Team UE in Prison!

So what’s all this Urban Exploring I keep hearing about? Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby and, although it may sometimes involve trespassing onto private property, this is not
