    Visited with Over

    This place was huge! Not much to see on the higher floors but the underground floors and rooftop were amazing.

    First of all after entering we went down to the safety deposit vault. I had a lot of fun playing with light for my photographs in there considering that all the safes were partially reflective. This room in itself was just an amazing explore with all the shiny boxes and little rooms and everything.

    Next was the roof, and f*ck me it was a mega strain to get to... Off we set, two to three steps at a time and it still took almost forever.

    So there we were on the south facing rooftop tooking out towards the Beetham tower etcetera. We chilled up there for a bit, I had a smoke to help me relax a little and then Over mentioned the other parts to the rooftop and asked if I wanted to see any of them. Next thing I knew I was walking along a tiny ledge at the top of the bank, the drop below me reaching straight down to the floor, and then finally I was across. The views from this side were not as good as the other side so I got one photo and then got back across and had another smoke to calm my now raging nerves!

    Just as we had finished our cig's we heard police sirens in the city centre so we called it quits and left - just incase.
