A random day - 2013

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

Yesterday was quite an interesting day. I travelled up on my own and met a mate of mine who came down from Manchester.

The first location was totally empty and the internal doors sealed. The panel covering the back door was loose and gave way when I was about 8 foot off the ground hence I took a rather large fall onto the ground. If anyone knows where the "diary keepers cottage/racy lady house" is, then don't bother. Empty and sealed now. I have a bruised lower back but I don't think I've broken anything considering I've had to cart fence panels through the house this morning. Serves me right to eat 3 hot cross buns and coffee at 4am before I left the house :lol::oops:

The second was the school which we managed no issues, the place was quite wrecked but the stairs was pretty much all that was interesting. The doors to the labs were all sealed tight so we cut our losses and went to the cathedral opposite but it was visitors from 12:30 on Sundays so we moved on.

The third was the old Mill "T" which I have done before but Mark hasn't so we went and I think I took about 4 photos that I have yet to process with the exception of the one below.

The last one was an old Mill in Puxton that was totally sealed but worth checking even though last report was done at the beginning of 2012.

So the sum total of 150 miles is more or less (besides a few edits to go) below. Quite happy with them to be honest so it wasn't a complete waste of a day. But I did feel that the lack of new locations in the UK mean that I may just concentrate on the other aspects of photography I like and leave UE for the bi monthly Eurotours. I may change my mind though as one of the crew has found something very local today that we are checking out over the Easteer bank holiday.

Anyway, on with the photos.



















Thanks for looking in.

      Little house somewhere in Belgium. Seems there lived an 103 year old lady and after a fire on the upper floor she left the house. Her son still comes there every week to feed the cat.

      Not really UE but I thought I'd stick it up

      Hopefully Jesus will put up his pics too, I would say this was a photography exercise, but it really wasn't most of the time mine was on full auto and i wasn't bothering with the view finder hahaha. Point and shoot in the most literal sense
      I'm still quite proud of the results...
