    Default Abandoned House, Pontypridd, South Wales


    An odd little visit that I thought had no potential but my mate (i dont know his username on here yet) persuaded me, and it turned out to be really interesting. Certainly let me get to grips with my camera a bit more and try out some new things.

    Apparently the land has been bought and this is to be torn down soon.

    I will post a few pics, links to the album are at the bottom of the post.

    Mmm the dolls really made it for me, in the full album you can see the head of the headless doll looking out of the window. tried getting that by the window but it fell down and there was no way I was getting that.

    Yeh I must admit I took a step I wasnt sure I was comfortable with and moved some stuff around, actually found myself considering whether it was right, but as I said, was trying out some new stuff and Im pleased with it at the end of the day. The way I kinda look at it is, it doesnt have to look exactly how it did there, I may alter the levels a bit but thats just bringin out hidden colour and thats how I imagine it. Its good cos it feels like im developing my kinda ethos or style towards my new found hobby.

    Gimme a day or 2 and Ill chuck up the abandoned church pics and ill finish editting the colliery ones.

    Cheers guys. Love how the doll and gnome took off
    Freaked me out big time, especially when I noticed she didnt have eyes, that was when I was taking the first pic of her on the mantlepiece kinda from the side, light hit it horribly.

    What an amazing find.

    I bet an old bloke lived there for years, then died.

    Love the old black and white TV.

    Bit odd there being a computer monitor and a newspaper from 2005.

    Those cigarette packs are from the last few years, going by the health warnings.

    Mmm, not ones with pictures though so not incredibly recent. I really cant figure that room out, it was in the middle of the house upstairs. Not sure if kids smoke in there cos its the least visible room, or the person who lived there was actually just messy as hell and had their smoking room like.

    Although the whiskey bottles seem to suggest certain things.
