My Second report - Visited with fellow crew-member D2.
Not really sure what to say about the first set of pictures and wasn't sure where to put this report as it's kind of a split one, but just went for the first set - admins - if you wish to move this, feel free :)
This old garage is something I go past almost every day and thought i'd go there for a little poke about and get some fairly uninteresting shots - for the surprise, you'll have to scroll down a bit - OOH, SUSPENCE.
First of all, the garage is pretty mashed up, couldn't find any way onto the second floor, only onto the rooftops, and being in broad daylight, that might have been a tad risky.
This is a very square building...
I know the views on graffiti on here aren't great, but when the building looks like this, I don't mind a splash of colour
Some kind of machine above where cars would have sat, anybody know what this was? As I said, couldn't find a way up to the second floor unfortunately :(
Electrical boxes (oh so many photos of these)
NOW, the interesting bit:
After wandering around the site for about 15 minutes we stumbled across some arches, on a whim I decided to try and get a shot of them at a side angle, and ended up discovering a network of tunnels
D2 gave me a bit of information about this actually, on this pipe you'll see a set of goggles on top, he said they're about 3 years old as nobody uses them anymore due to shatter proofing, so in theory, nobodies been down here for that long (i'd like to think that anyway) ;)
It was incredibly dark down here so the shots have been my first time playing with a low shutter speed on my camera, some of them came out better than others and I hope you can see them all good, here's what we saw upon entry:
Now: these rooms, we came to a clearing after ducking under that pipework and found that the tunnels went incredibly far right, unfortunately, the gaps were quite tight and I wasn't exactly dressed for hole crawling (but I might be some other time) :p
If anybody knows what this was for then please let me know, I could see the entrance to another one through one of the holes, but it had been slightly filled in.
The Hole - not very clear on the picture, but literally went on for as far as my torch could reach - like I said, would be a squeeze to get down there, but I might try.
Upon turning around to leave we found this old thing that looked and was about the same size as a bed, but the frame was really rather weak, if anybody can ID this, that would be cool :)
Also: was trying out light painting to light this shot, didn't really turn out great with an LED torch - but was better than a flash shot. :p
So that was that, on our way out we ran into builders, they must have been on lunch or something and annoyingly, the site looked totally abandonned when we waltzed in - they were nice though and opened up the main gate for us, which saved some climbing - hopefully we'll still be able to come back before they do anything major...
Here's one of me: self timed because I thought i'd look cool, ended up looking like I was watching a spider or something
