Hi everyone,
I am a blogger from the Indiana State and a fairly new member to Oblivion State.

I am "a cyber explorer of the web less traveled" and it was while randomly exploring Belgian websites that I happened upon a link to this forum. I have pretty-much lived in and around Indianapolis all my life and worked for several years as an industrial/commercial photographer. Although it has been many years since climbing/crawling around factories and such looking for "the shot," seeing the work presented here has me thinking it may be time to dust off the 25A-Red and Polarizer combo and see if I might get back into the "game."

 

I have been itching to contribute here so I decided to kick off the adventure with a blog post about this website (features the first 10 members I have followed.)

Check it out if you want:

Thanks for the welcome @Dubbed Navigator!

LOL - I wish I could remember which site... it was probably a telenet.be website that started with an "M" though... see, a few years ago I came across a listing of all user pages for telenet.be and have been running down that list bookmarking some of the better ones in a blog post of mine called Cyberspace-Archeology - "The Dig"   I was working on the "M"s when I came across the link (of course, I may have got it from a link to a link to a link... hard to say.)

 

Shortly after finding OS though, I was setting with my wife in a diner across the street from a grain elevator complex here in Indiana and casually commented, "I wonder what those buildings look like inside?" The next day at work I spent several billable minutes exploring the many lovely images by @mookster here on Oblivion State and got a clue... Just looking forward to getting a closer look ;)

Thanks for checking out the blog post about OS - I'm glad (relieved?) you approve :D

It was great to see someone new talking about OS ?

 

mookster is big on his US stuff, it would be well worth your time getting hold of him.

      This is my first post on here, and these were taken with a cell camera, but I found this site interesting. This is a former control site for a Nike Missile Base that was part of a defense ring around a major city during the Cold War. The location where the missiles were stored/lauched in a few miles away and in use.  Eventually this was used as a State National Guard Unit until abandoned around 1996. The night photos are of 2nd base in this region which is partially used
