    A few images from my trek inside the abandoned Brickworks.

    The place is covered in graffitti. ​

    An old leftover brickmaking machine. This was just inside the busted in door. I managed to climb to the top , and inside were unmade bricks. ​

    There are hundreds of these old electrical panels everywhere. Everyone covered in graffitt. ​

    I would post the whole series, but it might be easier to view the gallery here. ​

    Thanks so much for all your kind words. Really appreciate it. :D

    jwkwd...I dont know how many paint cans I saw around there. Great history lesson in paint can labels tho. I did not know that many varieties were available here

    ernie.....I show all these in Raw, and did a bit of correction in the conversions. There were a few dodge and burn areas in some of the photos. In the last for instance...I was shooting directly at the bright sunbeams coming in. I did a bit of dogde and burn in that one.
    I was thinkin of going back and trying a ND grad filter and see if maybe I can get some better exposures. Since the lower half the building is so dark, and the bright holes are so....bright, I was wondering if it will help. This weekend we are getting a snow storm, so I might hit the trials. But for sure a re shoot is planned for this place. :D
