Post your abandoned places & urban exploration photos thread. - Page 3

post #21 of 118
Bookmarked.

I love Urban Exploration. Since you're in MD, you should take a drive to Centralia, PA. Everyone who is on the east coast and into Urban Exploration should stop in there.

I ventured into the old Centralia police station before they padlocked the door on my last trip down I-81.

This is a favorite activity of mine. I explore all sorts of abandoned places (some great sites here in KY).

Here's a link to my abandoned collection, too many shots to post here. Please have a look if you like; I have some pretty spooky places recorded:

4. My friend standing in what looked like the remnants of a bathroom.

wow, awesome thread, awesome pics! this is pretty neat!

Ever get worried about thugs/gangs/or homeless people? Should be strapped IMO (I'v got a LTCH though, and carry everywhere.)

I may try to get into this a little. I know of an old railroad station, and also the Old Indiana Brass factory. The factory, however, was set ablaze in '10 but there still may be some basements/tunnels that were left unscathed.

Yes, hobos and drifters are a concern. I just never go anywhere like that alone. MD is very gun unfriendly so no concealed carry for me. I just bring a mono pod that can double as a club :-)

As for CCW...yeah, hard to obtain such a permit in MD. However, I do typically carry some sort of knife with me. Plus, as Rob said...tripods and monopods make for great make-shift weapons in a pinch.

So, here's one of my shots from the trip. One of my favorites from the day. The door being there, leaning the way it was...Rob and I agreed that there was just something...strange...about it that looked awesome.

These are all I really have from my city (Montreal) but I have tons from all over Europe. Sorry about the quality, these are 8x10 prints I did for school last semester but I don't have access to a proper scanner so I just quickly photographed them. The whole point of the shoot was to contrast the innocence of the model to the old and worn architecture featured in the old-port here. Shot with a Canon FT-b, 28mm f/2.8 with HP5+





If any of you have seen the movie "Bon Cop, Bad Cop" that abandoned tower is the the tower from the last scene.

I've been. It was wild. This was years ago though and I only had a lowly p&s. I'll see if I can dig up the pictures later anyways.

Looks cool. Any buildings to explore?
