    While I've never done it before,

    I'd love to start doing some urb-ex. Any tips for a first-timer? Best areas for urb-ex in florida? Things I should take with me, besides a camera and other obvious things?

    Yes Trespassing

    Whenever I’m feeling bored, I like to get out and explore the town. I’m an insomniac and I enjoy tranquility, so I leave when it’s way past everyone’s bedtime. I live in the middle of the city, so it’s pretty much just businesses and houses all around me. Finding a...

    I just got back from Holmesburg Prison in

    Philadelphia. They let groups come in to do photography, got some awesome shots. The paint is peeling, some walls are crumbling. There are a few trees that grew through the walls making for some amazing pictures inside and out. There are a few beds left and other remains of...

    Some Urban, Some Rural

    Most of the urban exploration hijinks I find myself involved in don't amount to much more than an out of the way corner of a small to medium sized town, and to be totally honest I'm mostly looking around for invention parts in junk that people have dumped because they can't...

    Sometimes A Good Imagination Is A Bad Thing

    ITT Grinell.

    You sit behind your barbwire fence silent and alone. A massive abandoned industrial complex that reminds me with striking clarity of Gotham City from Batman. Your green pipes suggesting copper oxidation are misleading. If they were copper they would've been looted long ago. They...
