Define Urban Decay Exploration
Hmm.. Real stories and legends of wrecked sites buildings & property photos.
Twisted Museum Beauty of Art?
lets call this innovated news " the urban decay pictures worldwide".
Lets talk Urbex & get an urban definition in our own version of the urban dictionary
"urban decay pictures or so", of the curiousness of
Our Solid American Urban Dic "urban definition" defines Urban exploration or
Urbex, also called urbexing, UE, spelunking, building hacking, infiltration (to
explore active structures), is the the actual exploring, and usually taking
urbex photos too, photos of abandoned places such as amusement parks ( like the
photos wrecked sites totally abandoned by an irresponsible fresh city of Chernobyl in Ukraine Ferris wheel ).
Abandoned mansions apartments & hotels, grain elevators, factories, power plants, sewer drains [
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Haha!], missile silos, old churches, fallout
shelters, tunnels, scary mental hospitals, asylums, old abandoned swimming pools,
catacombs cemeteries & mausoleums, servant house ruins, schools, prisons,
abandoned ships, old barns, poor houses, abandoned homes, abandoned cities &
towns, buses & trains, and with abandon sanatoriums.
Urban explorers that enjoy this hobby usually consist of freelance photographers whom take beautiful &
eerily fascinating pics, historians, preservationists, architects, archaeologists, industrial archaeologists, ghost
hunters, and people as a legitimate interest and fun curiosity
( see our other online photos and forum ).
There are several safety concerns of urban exploration that could make this
particular hobby moderately to very dangerous, depending on what & where.
This includes bad air asbestos, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, toxic gases,
ETC), unsafe floors, exposed electrical wires, entrapment hazards (like a hidden
well, or an outhouse in my Cousin's case!)
Used syringe needles laying by substance abusers, broken glass, collapsing roofs ...People have even drowned in
underground drains by unexpected flash floods.
However, most urban explorers kind the element of danger serving the heightening of
the existential anxiety of exploration.
The rusted building, a box of surprises, ceilings and roofs falling down like
stars from the sky.
That rusting walls in the outside of the element and an imaginary insides, rooms
and decks with Unknown content.
Who could tell what is exactly waiting in the building interior, something
probable like baroques old furniture already deteriorated and tables, beds and
Beautiful style that will eventually disappear slowly as the weather
rain, snow and sunshine hit the already week walls.
And then what is the surprise, the treasure chest to discover in case if
you decide to make your own tours to visit it?
Ghost, yeas horrible dark side ghost man and older women, sometimes little kids
ghost too have being seen by locals after six pm.
These ghost take peeks from he windows.
They are dark shades who scream to eachother and if you are near, to you too!.
Hauntings Urban Decay Pictures
Should the act of infiltration actually just be called " invasions or
invasionration" the near word ? "An Urbex Photography".
We think not, because it is a proven fact that the work of the
explorers is basically the same as that of psychotherapists in their exploration
of psychological structures whom are VERY excited by historic traumas.
Also, the book author of "Infiltration", Jeff Chapman, stated that "genuine urban
explorers never vandalize, steal or damage anything.
The thrill comes from that of discovery and a few nice pictures "
We agree with Jeff, especially about online photos sharing of legal urbanism exploring.
Top 5 List of Rules for Legal Urban Exploration
Abandoned Buildings & Urbex Photography
1. After finding an abandonment to explore, ask permission from the owner,
local police or other government resources, and get a waiver.
Then you can explore worry-free of cops and can concentrate on safety and photos.
2. Arrange a private tour, this good if you want rare information about the
site’s history or architecture to go along with haunted urban myths & scary legends.
3. Do Not bring any tools to the property whatsoever, just a camera and a
flashlight, at the most.
4. Don’t take souvenirs, that is stealing. Are haunting part of the
human fears facing every day? Your pictures
are 'souvenir enough'. And, Do Not Litter or sport graffiti, these are
vandalism. Just 'Urban Out' and always remember that the Unspoken rule of urban
exploring is "take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints".
5. Stick to historic "museum-like" legal abandoned buildings urbex
photography, that are worth
exploring such as a creepy State Penitentiary or eerie Sanitariums (the Best urban
decay pictures of art!).
