    Hi all,

    I am just getting into photography...well, I've been into/a fan of photography for years, but I've only just recently got my first ICL camera, so I'm learning the ropes at the mo.

    I love the idea of shooting in abandoned/derelict/decaying places, some of my fave types of photography.

    And a quick google of that subject brought me to here, so here I am!

    I particularly like the sub-themes of abandoned:
    - Railway Stations/tracks
    - Medical/Military/Industrial facilities
    - Country Houses

    Looking forward to having a look around this site, and then hopefully looking around some (actual) sites!

    Cheers.
    Steve.

    Welcome along :thumb

    Quite a few Essex folk around on the forum and plenty of good sites to explore in the area.

    Look forward to seeing your reports! :)

    Welcome Steve, as Boomstick says, loads from Essex, and a quick look with the search bar and Google and I'm sure you'll find that there's a lot to do in Essex as well! :thumb

    Cheers guys, sounds good!

    I just realised I've been making an assumption about this site/the members, and the nature of site... and that assumption is that in the main, people are on here to share this info about the different places due to an interest in photography. Is that about right?

    I mean I'm sure a lot in here are into photography (and I can tell they are by some great shots I've seen at a quick look on the reports), but it just occurred to me that photography might not be the sole factor in wanting to visit these places.

    Hope that makes sense.
    I know what I mean anyway! :)

    I know what you mean, a lot of people are in it for the explore, a lot are in it for the chase from security and others are in it for the photos. Personally, I think it's a mix of all 3 that makes it what it is and why I like it so much. :)

    :) Exploring, of course! :banghead ... I guessed the chase/thrill-seeking/those-who-like-to-scare-themselves-shitless would be one of them! :)
