    I have some strange love for the decaying things around town.

    Larger image posted... I was kinda rushed at the time. It's the only pic I got of the building.

    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 :D

    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.

    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.
