Urban Exploration

Mouldering State Hospital

After the post on smoke doors I know I was ready for a break and I thought you might be too.  I love photographs of urban decay, and Ward9 features some amazing photos of really interesting and often beautiful architectural ruins.  I asked for permission to share a couple of the photos with you...go check out WardNine.com to see the rest and read a little about the history of these amazing places.

Ellis Island

I know some of you will remember "Chip Falcon's Road Trip" from a couple of years ago.  For those of you who weren't readers of this blog back then...I usually go on a road trip with my family every summer.  In the summer of 2009, I had to take a Falcon 25 series panic device on the road trip so I could show it to a specwriter who had moved to South Carolina.  Since I was dragging the panic device (nicknamed Chip Falcon) around, I wrote a series of posts about the various places that we visited on our road trip and wrote about some of the features of the 24/25 series which had just been introduced.

Urban Exploration

I think I may have found the perfect hobby for myself.  Not that I need anything else to keep me busy, but I recently discovered the art of Urban Exploration, which combines my love of photography, architecture, and adventure. According to Wikipedia, Urban Exploration (AKA urbex or UE) is "the examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities."
