    Default Harold Wood Mortuary [B&W] July 2010


    Visited with Kent-Urbex and 2 non-members. We didn't have much time on the way back from Runwell so didn't get to see the rest of the hospital. However, I was pretty pleased with these shots. Used AGFA APX-400 film and they've come out rather nice :)
    I won't bother with the history here though as every man and his dog knows it. On with the shots:




    Slabs



    I managed to bleed all over this one after being a bit careless during entry.



    Lock



    Sinks



    Fridges



    He will be known only as Edward.



    Kent-Urbex and his especially cadaver-like feet.

    Cheers

    excellent choice to use B&W, the contrast makes an already spooky location seem very sinister! the slabs certainly gave me a shiver!:)

    Great pics of a fascinating site. And good to hear of another good old fashioned film user and (presumably) darkroom user!

    Not quite, I don't have access to a darkroom at the minute so these pictures cost me a fair bit to get developed. But I leave for uni on Sunday and I'm planning on joining the photographic society so hopefully I will be able to use it freely. Except, I currently have no idea at all how to do that

    It is rare to see a nice set in black and white. It's almost a lost art.
