I’m Probably A Candidate
In the last year I decided to take my photography a little more seriously. I could of decided on something fairly sedate such as landscapes but having being interested in architecture I found myself taking pictures of old buildings. Originally it was mostly exterior shots of abandoned buildings but soon curiosity got the better of me and I started venturing inside them.

Numerous dangers are there from asbestos to collapsing floors; I’ve fallen though a few and who knows what’s lining my lungs these days. Add to that the need to take something different I’ve found myself standing on roof tops, climbing old towers, climbing scaffolds in the dark and eventually climbing cranes at night because the view is the best you’ll find. Future projects involve live metro tunnels and maybe a storm drain or two.

Still when you get views like this maybe it’s worth the risk….

High Times

Such a fantastic idea. It is a shame that I am too fat and clumbsy to climb stuff like that. Old buildings really give me the horn.

Don’t let that stop you
There are plenty of old buildings you can just walk into and take a look at :-)

Have a click mate. Any chance of a link to a full sizer?

Full size
has to much noise and blur this is probably as good as it gets. The achievement of taking the picture was probably better than the picture itself.

I guess
I should dedicate my future Darwin Award to all the B3tans who have offered me encouragement towards my inevitable demise :-)

It’s in Derby
Just across from the pub where the Derby B3ta bash is.

I'll probably see you in Darwin Heaven
It's a dangerous hobby but it's well worth the risk to your life.
