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

The beach and foreshore are littered with abandoned fishing boats all in various state of decay. A number of old fishing

Tunnel Bore 1880

After a long walk, with the threat of heavy rain, you get to spend a good hour or two slipping and sliding, crouching and crawling along one of the oldest tunnels dug by humankind.  That mud is sticky…very sticky and I’ll defy anyone to go down there and not come out covered! It’s normal to

Prison Life

A day in Prison..

Our first stop on our little wander across France and Belgium this weekend…after waking up the small village of sleeping Romanians parked in front of the place we thought we’d better make ourselves scarce! After a lovely walk in the sunshine we found our entry point! Easy this Urbex lark ! After 20 minutes of
