So after a good night at the rege with a couple of close friends, having a bit of a smoke, on my way home i thought ‘i haven’t check out that construction site in a while’. I took photos from these scaffolds around a house being built around the corner from me a few months ago:
and i decided to go check it out again. it hasn’t been touched, no work has been done on the house and it’s still prime for climbing around and getting a great view of the eastern suburbs. only had my iphone with me, but will be going back within the next couple of nights with my camera. Will be exciting to see what I come up with 6 months later.
I’ve already found myself frequently with anything to do, especially at night. With all this extra time I’m about to have on my hands, I’m super keen to go back to urbex, not just that but the style of photography I used to do that would put me in places that not a lot of people go. like this photo I took on the roof of my friend Lucia’s house:
I miss taking these sorts of photos, it’s always an adventure trying to get them, and they often make for a relatively cool story, all while maybe making someone go “oh shit, that’s cool”. I think the most effective way of acheiving both these things is urbex, just climbing shit that you’re not meant to climb. I found myself tonight really enjoying this state where nobody knows that you’re there. It tends to be where the best views are.
I’ve had a good night.
this has been a post.
Going for my first urbex construction shoot tonight in a nearby site with a friend. The location isn’t too awesome, so the photos might not turn out too great, but we figured best not to start with something too red hot. Pretty keen.
For those of you who haven’t seen urbex photography before, Check this guy out. Some seriously dope shit right there.
