    I have a few pretty cool hobbies. One of them is exploring and documenting old, decrepit, decaying structures and places that used to bustle with activity. We explore our forgotten world, and in the process I think we explore a little bit of ourselves each time as well.

    Thank you Iron. It's my latest 'serious' hobby, and I've really jumped in with both feet. The experience and fun is totally unique.

    Urban Exploration + Photography is a great mix. I've read blogs and seen many articles on people going into this sort of hobby.

    Great work. Something about #3 that really caught my eyes. A person struggling climbing up but no matter how hard it is he's trying to climb and won't give up until he get to his goal. Very inspiring in a way, I love it.

    Are you in Missouri? It looks like the skyline of Kansas City...Nice shots though. I love this kind of photography too. Not to mention exploring.

    The last shot looks like a video still from a movie. It makes me wonder what lurks behind that wall and what could be inside the van. Is it a innocent homeless man or a man up to no good. Intriguing.

    I think #5 has potential to be a great HDR shot. I would love to see what's outside of that window.
