    Hello, I just signed up today! :D Glad to see such a large community of phellow photographers hehe. Part of the type of photography I do is "urban exploring"...as other people label us. Anyways, I have been doing photography since I was about 6, and loved old buildings and history and put the two together.

    A few b/w's here from a once fiber mill and powerplant built in 1878. One of few in the city that still stand and an old buddy was the owner, so I had no problems getting inside. When I urban explore, I go light: respirator, lens wipes, spare film, gloves, and bugspray.....nasty tics and misquitos. Other than that, I take photos, leave footprints. No chaving, no looting or w/e.

    Most of the photos inside were taken with:
    f4.0, ISO: 180, Ap: mainly was +1.5. Some areas were darker than others.

    Here's a few I personally love from this site:

    This site has a popular spiral staircase. This is a shot looking down from the second floor. And it's very sturdy even today despite the rust and asbestos.

    One of the contol wheels on the smokestack floor. No idea what it did, lol.

    Probably for 40 years, this shoestring has held this pipeline to the beam.

    TY for looking. Hope you enjoy ;)

    Welcome to TPF, Bradster. I moved this thread to the General Gallery since these don't look like an alternative process.

    Thanks for posting!

    Thanks ev1. Here's a few more, most in colour and a bit more texture:

    The front entrance door.

    Looking into the main room from the panel balcony.

    Not great exposure on this one, of the panel balcony. You can see the switch levers which still move.

    Looking UP into a smokestack. Steel plates from Bethleham Steel, PA.

    Lastly, the flooring on the second and third levels.
