USA Carpet City Power Plant Sept 2015

Recommended Posts

One more little surprise post from America! I was going to include this in my miscellaneous round-up thread but I liked the photos too much to shove in there amongst others.

I first visited this place near as makes no difference a year ago to the day I visited it this time through a weird coincidence, and during that year it appeared that almost nothing has changed inside other than a litle bit more graffiti. I covered the site in greater detail last year so this time I broke out my 30mm Sigma prime lens for some arty goodness.

This power plant was at one point part of a large carpet mill, and has been left abandoned for many years. In the early 2000s the chimney was demolished and the remains of the base can still be seen inside. The decay, the colours and the lighting in here are amazing, ridiculously photogenic. It is one of my favourite locations in the whole world to shoot in and I just wish it wasn't so far away.

Thanks for looking, and this really is the end of my American posts...for now.

      following the decline of industries Sheffield offers plenty interns of urban exploring... from abandoned breweries, redundant steel works and leisure sites. It's difficult to experience all this in a single outing therefore I have compiled this into three years of exploring the city. Having started out at relatively low level explores and advancing this further to more harder to reach buildings here are some of the most important abandoned buildings Sheffield offers. If not for the buildings themselves Sheffield's street art is an important part of the explore. Often explorers take to photography for the art which is of a high standard coming from a far to experience this. Historically the buildings offer more than the art its self... the buildings often dating back to the victorian era give great scope to capture real history of the city. Often buildings have either been destroyed or are in the process of this. Been able to capture the buildings in their original state albeit a derelict one captures the cities past... and more importantly the history of British industry.

      Hey Everyone! Welcome to my very first Urbex..! My group and I went to these houses south of Atlanta that have been abandoned for a few years now. Unfortunately, they are going to be torn down soon, so anyone who may want to visit them, DM me ASAP! Anyway, The first house we went to was just empty and peaceful. The second house, not so much... We found graffiti telling us to leave; we should have listened. We stepped into the garage of the house and saw blood on the floor, and drag marks leading to the attic. Not wanting to see a dead body, we left. We're planning on going back to the attic soon in daylight. The third house was almost worse. We found some evidence that a serious crime may have happened there, as well as a swastika and a Confederate flag. We left without exploring too much of that house. On our way out, one of my friends looked back at the top floor of the house and saw someone in the window. We left quickly. I hope you guys like the pictures, some of them may be NSFW, the swastika. Otherwise, have a great day everyone! Be safe!

      First Post Guys! Anyways, my group of friends and I found an abandoned Gas Station south of Atlanta. Apparently, the gas station went bankrupt due to the county screwing them over. A new highway system was out in, and the road to the gas station was relocated, so in order to get to the station, one would have to travel a good 5 minutes out of their way. Not worth it. So the station closed down and now it looks like this. May go back to take more pictures soon, stay posted. Have a great day guys, and be safe!

      It's been months sense I got out and explored an abandoned location.  There wasn't much left here, but it still felt great to be back on that horse again.

      After a work conference, I decided a trip to the rather nice Belfast Mortuary was in order to help cure the immense hangover I had from drinking many pints and many whiskies the night before. 
       
      Closed for a while, and slowly disintegrating from the local delinquents attention.
