Art 'n Decay

Art 'n Decay in da house!

Recommended Posts

Hello

I'm kind of a forum-noob, but this platform-thing looks very interesting, we will get to know each other better soon I hope :-)

I follow oblivionstate a lot on facebook, and so now it seems I washed up on this wasteland-paradise between you other decay-fetishists

So thank you skeleton key for inviting me over ;-)

OK, so hi, I am Jef Peeters, 33 years old and living in Antwerp, Belgium.

Hooray: land of beer, city of diamonds (and I do refer to "Chambre De Commerce" rather than the pointy chrystal rocks)

I normally speak dutch, so apologies for the grammar and writing-champions among you brothers and sisters...

I will do my best, but honestly I have a lack on grammar anyway :-P

I am "urbexing", as in exploring with a photocamera, for five years now.

Started with a Nikon D40 for some time, now shooting with good old Nikon D7000,

and planning to get an FX... a Nikon D750, or the giant leap to Canon, I don't know yet.

In five years exploring, I have done some nice adventures.

In Belgium off course, but I do like to go abroad: Netherlands, Germany, France, Luxembourg.

Two weeks ago I went first time to Italy for six days, and that won't be the last time either for sure!

I will post some eyecandy later on, I am way behind editing, but for those who want to see it all at once:

everything I editted on my flickr-albums: https://www.flickr.com/photos/artndecay/albums

or on my facebook-page: https://www.facebook.com/ArtnDecay

Never made it to UK, I wish, but I heard it's very hard to explore overthere.

I do dream walking in Potter's school, Post office, Camelot Park or that ark synagoge.

And I really need to see those maunsell sea forts before you can rent a room in those.

I read a lot of you live in UK, so I hope we will discuss this topic later on

See you around, on the web or on the road,

and if I can help you out on something, don't hesitate to ask.

cheers

Jef welcome on the forum and good to see you here :D

It can be strange if never forum orientated but here are such good people to simplify and assist.

A great write up and insight and thank you for taking the time :D

Regarding posting you have to host images first and there are several ways of doing so.

Welcome along Jef. Exploring in the UK seems to have that reputation across the channel but it's the same as anywhere really. Some places you can just walk in with no hassle and some places are very secure, it's swings and roundabouts. There are a lot of amazing places over here at the moment and you will see many of them being posted on here. I will also be passing through Antwerp soon so maybe I'll bump into you in a waffle shop :D

      Meanwhile, this Italian villa of a football coach is pretty well known, and several things has changed there.
      Only a dusty dirt road leads to it and from outside the house looks quite inconspicuous. But once again proves: Don't judge a book by its cover...!

      This is where Henry lived with his wife Mary and their only child, a daughter. Mary died a long time ago and Henry had to move in with his daughter who looks after him. He is 98 years old. After much persuasion he finally agreed that this, the family home must be sold. 
       
      Henry was a hard-working man with strong moral principles. He's been a prominent member of his local chapel all his life. Among his paperwork includes a certificate dated January 1940 confirming him on the register of Conscientious Objectors. Interestingly he must have had to attend a formal interview to justify his beliefs so had written prepared answers based on questions he thought the authorities might ask, along with character references.  Also there was a letter dated September 1976 congratulating him on 25 years service to the BBC as a gardener. 
       
      This is not just an abandoned house - its a home. In this home are meaningful and treasured possessions but also a home full of memories. This was a sanctuary from the outside world, a place to lead a simple life.

      Spotted this while out and about so popped in for a look, not a great deal left behind
      In the middle of a small town on the Shropshire border
      Had to be fairly quiet as it is surrounded by houses
      Looks like its not been lived in for a couple of years
      A stable block out back, loads of TV sets and old Playstation mags , one of which gives the name I gave the place
