Other Film 6, Black & White Edition

Recommended Posts

I've not really had a lot to shout about lately, plans have been shelved, cancelled or changed, explores have been missed due to ill health and it's generally been a bit crap hence my lack of activity on here over the last few months. I posted this on another forum to kind of show them I was still alive so I figured I might as well put it on here before I fly out across the Atlantic again on the 5th.

 

Some of you may know that I have owned a Canon T70 for several years now, I always have it with me on explores but usually forget all about it so it more often than not takes me an age to finish a roll of film.

Before my trip to America last September I loaded my roll of rather nice black & white film into it, with the aim of filling it up and getting it developed while over there. As you can probably guess that failed, it took me seven months to fill this roll up.

 

I was worried about not getting much out of the roll but I was pleasantly surprised, there were only a handful of duffers.

 

These were all taken in and around abandoned places in Upstate New York, Scotland and England between September 2015 and April 2016.

      Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera
      This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.
      I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots


      There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate


      the only real graffiti I saw


      old statue knocked down

      Outdoor bath for higher ranking personal

      Another checkpoint ?


      A very hot and long road to the rest of the base

      random buildings


      entrance to an underground area


      more underground entrances

      pitch black

      led to this

      directly beneath this


      Then I found the long tunnel !!!

      which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides






      up top I found this



      then the long walk back to the car

      Havent posted for what seems an eternity !
      So this was a trip to Bulgaria that 7 of us went on in March.
      Wont go into the history as its out there
      Small copy and paste from wiki
      Buzludzha is a historical peak in the Central Balkan Mountains, Bulgaria and is 1441 metres high (4728 ft). In 1868 it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Ottoman Empire.
      The Buzludzha Monument on the peak was built by the Bulgarian communist regime to commemorate the events in 1891 when the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement with the founding of the Bulgarian Social Democratic Party, a fore-runner of the Bulgarian Communist Party. The Monument was opened in 1981.No longer maintained by the Bulgarian government, it has fallen into disuse.
      The monument was built at a cost of 14 186 000 leva.
      Buzludzha can be reached by two side roads from the Shipka Pass either a 16 km (10 mi) road from Kazanlak or a 12 km (7 mi) road coming north from Gabrovo.
      Now the monument is abandoned and vandalised. As the roof of the building is heavily damaged, the main entrance of the building has been closed for the public. (cough cough)
      So as said 7 of us went, 2 traveled from Glasgow (got knows why Nikon came up here to fly down to Stansted lol) met another 4 in Stansted then our final party member met us in Plovdiv after travelling from Belgium.
      So many laughs had on this trip, ranging from 1 party member going missing at night, after getting bladdered and trying 4x4`s in the pitch black, to absolute nonsense conversations after too much cheap booze.
      For me it was what a trip is all about, fun fun fun and seeing and shooting a pretty cool place.
      We spent 3 days/2 nights at the base of the monument, personally only went up twice, but I know others done it many times at all times of the day and night.
      Anyways, mixed bag, in the order they were shot























      Not happy up here !!! 200ft pitch black climb then 100ft on see-thru ladders, anyone who knows me knows I dont do heights !!
      Pretty chuffed I got to the top tbh, but bob hope I was going out on the ledge !!





      cheers
