If you have been reading for a while or perhaps new to following my blog, you will notice that me and my friends love abandoned buildings for the history, architecture and capturing something unseen by the public eye. Yeah, we still believe in taking only photographs and leaving only footprints too if you think (as do many) that we break into these places, smashing windows to gain access, then you would be wrong in assuming this.
This weekend, I was lucky enough to join some mates and head for a 56 hour road trip from Dover through France and onto Belgium to hit and photograph some locations. This would mean missing out on a lot of sleep, bathing and general luxuries of day-to-day living in exchange for some exploration.
I was told that there may be a last-minute trip this weekend so if I was free to come and meet up with the others and travel to the ferry at Dover and make our way across to Calais. Of course, I jumped at the chance to go as the opportunities and the character over the pond are much more favourable than the UK at the moment.
We planned a route and some places and hoped to get some locations done and must say I was more than happy with the places we managed which were mostly all new locations and something different including a Royal Castle and a Prison. These will get a write up over the coming weeks but a small selection of the photos are below to whet your appetite maybe for more.
Thanks for reading.
