Jason Leslie Rogers [deleted] says:

I live in Cleveland, TN. There are a lot of old abandoned factories and storm drains and burnt out houses... This area of East Tennessee is pretty much a UE paradise.

I started doing Urbex before I had heard the words Urban Exploration. There's an Old Woolen Mill down the street from where I live that my photography instructor recommended. I was hooked!

I prefer above ground UE to drains or subway tunnels. I like being able to take advantage of natural light. Though I will be doing some storm drains around town and on my college campus soon.

He i'm currently living in St, John's, Newfoundland (Canada).

There are some abandoned buildings and war / military sites around the area that are quite intriguing.

I'm into anything eerie and/or makes me nervous to enter, just a cool feeling I guess.

hey all...

Wellington, New Zealand.

love the feeling you get in an old abandoned building. I always feel it's a bit of a shame when these old places get knocked down and I want to catch one final moment in time before they're lost forever.

This is a fantastic group, and I'm looking forward to checking out some of your guys' wonderful shots!

Hey everyone, I'm from Louisville KY / Indianapolis IN.

Rust and rubble has always caught my eye. I have a long list of locations I'd like to shoot but it's all a matter of time, funding, and having someone to tag along. Always more fun with other people :)

I basically just shoot whatever I can, but I do prefer working with natural light. I also generally prefer working with b&w, film, but since that's time consuming, my shifty little point and shoot digital works for now. Oh, and my Polaroid, of course.

tasha.ferrari says:

Hello, I'm Tasha from Leicester in the UK.... I love the thrill of trying to get in to the buildings in the first place, which is always more tricky with camera equipment, hee hee! For me though, the buildings themselves tell such stories from the past and there is so much history to be caught in the decaying details and broken doorways.... My best ever trip yet was to Severalls in Essex, UK, last spring... Its an old abandoned asylum, which is set in acres of land and has a high perimeter security fence all the way round. We knew beforehand it was possible to get in, but it took nearly 2 hours circling the perimeter, before we found the ONE gap where a steel bar had been removed, so we could get in!!! Haha! It was worth it though. I have yet to put all the images on Flickr because it is all on film, but there are a few of the broken glass windows..... I shall add some to this pool, along with a few of other places!

i'm Mary from the Twin Cities area in Minnesota. I have always liked old buildings, derelict areas of towns. The older the city the more good stuff there is. There has been an old abandoned building I have wanted to see the inside of but as of yet have had no luck, too many people, fences...you know the deal. Anyhow, at least I have some pictures of outsides of building. Enjoy my pics feel free to tell me what you think or not. It's all good.

Hello, I'm from downtown Toronto and love urban exploration. I don't know how to drive and have always been a city boy. Unfortunately, it's getting a little difficult to find decrepit, crusty subject matter here...

I love the idea of Infiltration, though I *think* I may be a little too old for that, so it's mainly exteriors I explore.

Metal Shop 2

I found Urbex through exploring h-e-d's photographs - he has a fantastic eye for composition and have been enjoying his stitched-together panoramas.

Where you're from: Liverpool/Wirral in England's North West

How you discovered Urbex: Flickr Search

Type of Urbex you like to do: Generally, jumping on a bus and looking out the window. If I see something; Jump off and get it! I also just walk around the streets snapping the scenes I see. People take their surroundings for granted. Thats not the way to go. Places Change, my city has changed beyond recognition in the last 10 years and its my job to make sure the city of today is recorded so that future generations can look back and think "Wow! was Liverpool really like that?"

Oinster [deleted] says:

From East Anglia here!

Been doing "Urbexing" since I was a child, but didn't know what it was then. I always just thought it was my Father taking me on a walk. We used to see a lot of the Pill Boxes, emplacements and ammo storage places around Dover.

My favourite type is hospitals. Although, I did do a foundry recently and found that quite interesting. I spent a lot of time in hospital as a teenager (and still do to an extent), so I'm curious as to what happens to them when they close.

Here's a photo from my last explore of Severalls - probably one of my favourite places on earth. In the next few weeks, it will be pulled down.

Hi all

I am from Amsterdam, the Netherlands .. I have always loved old buildings with leftovers that get your fantasy going about what went on inside ..

I asked a friend lately, how he found this factory in the Netherlands, since we are a neat country that tears down everything immediately after closing down (squatters problem in larger cities) ..

He told me to look for 'urban exploration' .. so I found this :)

I want to plan a trip in the Netherlands, or somewhere in Germany, not too far away .. If any Dutchies in here are interested, let me know ..

Now I am off to find a Dutch Urbex group :)

wiredance [deleted] says:

Hey people!

I'm from Hungary, and live 20kms from Budapest. I've also been "exploring" since early childhood, been to most unfinished or abandoned buildings around here when I was 12 or so. I'm 21 now, and I just re-discovered this thing and decided to take it up as a hobby.

So I'm much of a newbie, with no "real" urbexing experience.

As far as I know, there are not many Urban Explorers in Budapest, or at least they're not very organized, or it's just that they don't spread they exist, so I explore with a few friends.

I plan to explore those areas around me that I know of firstly - old soviet airports and army bases, bomb shelters, the Csepel factories... There's quite a lot to see around here.

And to add a picture from my first trip, some dial in some basement under the Csepel Works factories:

bfd995 S.W.A.K [deleted] says:

I'm from Illinois, in an area which has been experiencing a population explosion for years. I began creeping around where I shouldn't really, taking pictures of stuff I never get to see normally. Empty buildings are compelling. Trash and pieces-parts intrigue me. An old car in a thicket, right under everybody's nose - sweet find. A lot of what I've shot is gone and now when I see a bulldozer parked outside an old factory or mall, I try to capture what I can. Then it's mine, long after they've built the new strip plaza or townhouses in it's place.

Hello all!
New to Flickr, from Manchester, England.
Always really liked the idea of exploring the urban environment with a camera but I didn't realise that there was a name for it, less a group dedicated to it! Some of the pictures on here have inspired me to search deeper within Manchester for unseen places, I'l post the results.
This cool looking spire was found when exploring a multi-story carpark in the lesser visited Northern Quarter of Manchester, discovered on an almost deserted top level of it.

Rajko.be says:

Hi everyone !

I'm from Belgium, but I just moved to New York City, which seems to offer quite a lot of oppurtunities of UE.

I always liked the gorgeous colors of rust and bricks, the touch of smashed concrete, the strange atmosphere of empty buildings showing their steel skeleton... I had friends who called some type of Urbex "Mustang" : if you're hanging around with people in the street and you see an open door or an opportunity to get into a building, seize your chance and get into it, without worrying about people who could see you. I like that consept, but I like to plan a bit more and have a more respectful approach of the building. It's like talking with an 80-years-old person : you listen carefully and you do not interrupt his talk nor adopt a respectful attitude.
What I like the most is building sites and destructing sites. I recently crossed the road and got into an old brick factory being renovated :

Zombola Photography says:

Hi all,
my name is Pablo, im from leeds, yorkshire. I grew up in an industrial town mainly textile mills which the last of closed during my younger years. So my friends and I would find a new mill to play in on a weekly basis, some had recently closed and were in working order, others were 100s of years old and in a state of desrepair. I love the feeling these places instantly blanket you with and would never stop until every room/floor had been explored. sadly all the ones i knew have all either been demolished for houses or turned into 'luxury flats'. Now I'm old I try to find as many as i can and get photos before they are demolished and it still brings back those same feelings. I love any old building, i like rust, decay, machinery etc. Ive done a couple of shoots with people my favourite mills.

I've been into Urbex since I was a kid, without realizing that what I was doing had a name :) As kids we'd always find somewhere to explore, and it was an obvious progression when I "started" photography to explore with my camera...

I enjoy exploring anywhere and everywhere. Probably the best exploration of late was the Old College in Accrington. A huge huge building that was left exactly how it was when it was in use!

In fact i just visited an old lemonade factory yesterday, with my camera this time. Here's an example:

Hi!
Im billyvoo and Im from Detroit. Ive been exploring abandoned places for years actually but only recently with a camera. I found the group from another group members group list and since were all into the same stuff, I thought this would be a good home for some stories and photos.

Cheers!!

Hello everyone...I'm from a suburb of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

I discovered Urbex as a hobby less than a year ago...didn't realize that it was such a popular thing to do, as I've been interested in exploring abandonments for a while now, but became part of the online Urbex world just last August.

So far the only locations I've had the chance to explore are abandoned houses and rural buildings, but if I can find any urbexers in my geographic area I would like to branch out into other locations.

This is one pic of inside an apartment building that I've visited a couple of times now:

Here you find images of the urban paranoia ...aka the metropolis of Sheffield, that are of nature based in inner-city landscapes with the out of the place bucolic landscapes along with empty abandoned buildings. most people ignore them as they are not something that bothers them. however some people don't ignore them and they are called urban explorers. i have been exploring the urban metropolis of Sheffield most of my life but have only recently (from 2000) started to take a camera with me, also sometimes you will find images of people and gigs urbanparanoia.co.uk/0.html

I love these places, however they give me the creeps at the same time. As a child we used to travel through miles of sewers with the echoing sounds of water, and cars over sewer caps, it was eerie!

I recently stumbled upon an excellent place, however, I am not too keen on adventuring alone, so only got a few pictures.

Hello, John Here. (duh) I have joined in a few outings along with the "Chicago in Decay" group and saw this group in Pebbles recent shot.

Really I am just enjoy having such a wide open material, as seen when wandering through a busted down building or location.

I live in the suburbs, so most of my exploring is confined to narrow storm drains and the occasional abandon house.

Hi, I'm from Belgium. There is a lot - and I mean a LOT - to urbex here!
I discovered urbex almost a year ago, thanx to some people I met on Flickr - one of them is my boyfriend now! - they took me on a session in an abandoned factory and since then I'm really fascinated by urbex!
I like to explore all kinds of abandoned buildings.

Where you're from: Hey, I'm Jason, Explorer from NJ, I've been exploring for a bout a year now and have gone through some pretty fun places around Jersey and am starting to tap into NY a little bit. I got into exploring while hanging out with one of my friends looking for something interesting to do, i got into exploring about the same time i got into photography so i just started documenting the places I've been. I mostly like to do buildings, Hospitals are a favorite, but also power plants, warehouses, any building that looks interesting really. Feel free to stop by my page and say hey.

I'm from Salem, MI, but spend most of my time in Ypsilanti. I've been interested in Urbex for a while; I just never knew what it was called and have been trying to convince my friends it would be fun to explore some ruins. Usually this meets with 100% rate of failure, I guess the people I know are too comfortable/safe/abso-frukin'-leatley no fun. Anyway, long and short of it is I don't have that many pictures. Here's from my first, and so far only, solo mission.

Hi!
I am a photo student and I was introduced to urban exploration by a friend no more than four weeks ago. We went to Gary IN, and I was instantly hooked. Currently we shoot in the Chicago area.

Hi from Belgium.
I'm exploring places from since I was a kid (without even knowing it).
Lots of the places I ever visited are completely gone and all I have is memories.
That's why I decided to start taking pictures. In the first place my pics are a catalogue of the places I ever visited (in case they get demolished) but I also hope that I can grow in the art of taking good pictures.
