    Default Derby GNR Warehouse - The Basement, April '11


    Last time I explored here, I didn't have a torch, wide-angle lens or a tripod with me meaning that I couldn't take any decent shots inside the basement.

    So when I found my tripod, torch and wide-angle, I went back with a friend for company (far too scary to solo it!) and to get photos.

    These are them...

    Thanks very much :)
    We found so much junk in the basement it's unreal - at least 6 baths, a trolley, this trike, a broken computer and keyboard, bits of cars (not really surprising!) and other bits and peices. What other spooky things are there? I'm amazed it's still standing, too! Had a bit of a scary moment when me and the friend I was with heard people above us seemingly throwing stuff around so we packed up, but they had left by the time we were about to leave, which was good. They didn't spot us either ;)

    Thanks very much! When I first visited the basement and saw the trike, I had an image in my head of what I wanted the photo to look like, and it's pretty much spot on! I'm amazed that the torch light could reach as far down the corridor as it did, and the blueness!
