First Urban Exploration

A few years ago I read a book by David Morrell  called Creepers about urban explorers. That was one of the best books I have ever read, and I have been interested in urban exploration ever since. Now I have connected with a lot of other photographers on Twitter, like Charles Dastodd  and Scott Wood, and they have some excellent urban exploration images. They got me itching to give it a try, and I knew of an old school that has been shut down for a few years. So, I called around trying to get permission to enter, but everyone is on vacation. I decided to just go and see what was what. The side door was open, so I took a chance and went in. This place was a mess! But it looked like some awesome shots could be made, so I set up the tripod and started shooting. Here's a few shots that I think turned out ok.

You can see how rundown the place is in this shot.

Old Bathroom.

Fire alarm.






I have to admit, these are the only photos I got because I lost my nerve and left. Maybe next week I can get permission, and do a little more exploring! Thanks for looking.
