    I figured that I should probably post some reports on here after a long absence, so I will start with photos of a recent foray into Western Europe with the girlfriend. All of these photos are shot with film, either Tudorcolour XLX200 or Kodak Pro BW400CN. Apologies for the large image size, it's either that or nothing as I'm linking off of facebook. Also there are quite a few photos on here, so if you get offended by large amounts of photography I suggest you go elsewhere and think about where it all went wrong.

    So anyway let's get down to the derpy goodness we all came here for - We will start off with a large and very touristy prison situated in some French ghetto, well I say ghetto, but in reality it wasn't a bad town. The massive gypsy camp next door though? Let's just say I didn't really like parking my car next to them.

    After that it was into Belgium for a quick look around a few of the old Charbonnages, taking nothing but footprints and leaving nothing but photographs. Although these sites weren't ep0c, or l33t, they are great photographically, and that's what it's all about for me half of the time. Sick PP and POV bro 10/10.

    Staying on the subject of derpy old derps, we decided to visit Chateau Noisy for one last time before it's demolished. She's in a rather bad way now but still has a certain charm. Watch out for booby traps in the grounds, I nearly fell to my death... We met quite a few other people in here, so if any of you are reading this I was that weird English bloke.

    After that it was on to the power stations, the first offering being a rather small plant which once powered a large industrial site. Very snazzy.

    And with that, we are lead nicely onto the last and best location. After seeing John Salomon's report on this place I knew I had to go, and after a bit of searching around I had the location, and the ferry was booked. It was all about seeing this place really, with all the photos above being a bonus. So after parking my car outside the front gate and making full use of my tank cat to gain access to the site, I loaded 36 frames of 35mm hipstery goodness into the Canon and off we went:

    Thanks for putting up with that lot anyway, head to my Flickr to see more choice cuts of derp.

    Just open the photo you want to put on here, right click and select copy image location, then use IMG tags as normal :)
