Hey, hello to all from Chicago.
I've ended up poking around on this site more than a few times researching locations and sites to explore, so seems fair to contribute some of my finds :-)
Live and work here in the Midwest, USA, but also live and work a month or two a year in Eastern Europe, so I'll have reports from both regions.
My interest in Urbex started over 3 decades ago scavenging some refractory bricks out of the old Wisconsin Steel plant (South Chicago) and I have continued exploring ever since.
Thanks to everyone who has already contributed and I look forward to participating.
My name is AlexAvenue, I'm from Frisia in the Netherlands.
Urban exploration is one of my many hobbies and passions, witch is why I'm here,
Just want to get a feel of the community, and all its wonderful explorers.
If you want to know anything about me just ask. and I'm looking forwards to exploring this forum.
Long time lurker, first post!
I've always been fascinated by Urbanex photography but despite this I've never done any. We had a talk at our camera club in Bracknell Monday just gone and I've been inspired to finally go and do some. I'm not sure what there is around me that I can start with but once the snow dies down I'll go and have a look around and see what's about
Anyway, hope to follow up with another post containing photos in the not to distant future!
