I have some strange love for the decaying things around town.
Nice.... Did you get a little closer? Do you have a larger image?
Larger image posted... I was kinda rushed at the time. It's the only pic I got of the building.
This reminds me that I always wanted to photograph the factory featured on Pink Floyd's "Animals" album cover.
A friend of mine has a whole collection of photos dedicated do Urban Exploring. I didn't know about this term until recently, but for those who don't know, it's... well... breaking into abandoned buildings and photographing them.
Please note: This is not my photograph. Please click on it and see his gallery. It's worth it.

I've really been itching to get into the whole urban exploring thing... I just recently learned about it as well. It seems like somethin' I could really get in to.
I'll get into it soon. A couple of friends asked me if I'd like to tag along. They're pro photographers so I was overjoyed. I really could use the tutoring
It's really a cool structure... I wish you could have gotten inside. Nice find.
It can also be very dangerous, you can fall through floors, so good idea to have a buddy with you to call for help. Also harmful chemicals in the dust that you will inevitably brush into. But yeh it's cool.
Why is that everything you love is bad for you... Just like bacon. It's always somethin' ...
One of the Forum's rule is to not post any images that are not yours. Please just put a link.
Talking about links, here is one that anyone interested in UE should know:
Urban Exploration Resource: Forum - Home
For Anesthetize = Sub page from the site linked above
The bright red doors are really what caught my eye... I would love to get inside of there but this building clearly has no trespassing signs on every door...
Probably more for legal reasons than anything else. Most of the time it's a way of saying; if you go in and break your neck, don't come and sue us.
I've never had any problems going into this kind of places. Just don't go in alone. Accidents do happen and it is safer to have a partner. Also make sure and have a good flash light so you can see where you are going and avoid the aforementioned accident.
Check out this thread. It has some very nice photos from this site's members and some very interesting links.
But, Warning: UE is extremely addictive
