    Red face Whittingham Mental Asylum. Feb 09


    I know every inch of this place has been photographed, however, its the first time I've been in with my lovely Canon, so I thought I'd put my pics up.








    ^^ my fave^^

    There a few more available Here

    Oh, yeh, I should mention, as someone has allready pointed out, the focusing on some of the shots is CRAP. Alas, it is hard to take photos with only one hand. 5 more weeks and I'll be able to take some good photos!

    Thanks for looking guys!

    3 pictures! i want to see more! :(
    the corridor shot is fantastic - amazing how many differentt types of decay are in the same place. mould, flakey paint, plants, structural collapse, water infiltration and is that a bit of fire? nice one.

    If you're worried about "camera shake" treat yourself to a cheap tripod, well worth the extra tenner or so
