    I was excited to go and explore this location as it's nearby and the pictures I had seen looked interesting. I was joined by a fellow photographer and we soon bumped into another 28DL group of four. A tourist hot spot for sure. It proved useful and we were given a quick tour of the building before setting about the photography.

    There are many good reports with the history and proposed future use of the building but it is in a pretty bad state due to the lead being lifted from the roof.

    I decided to confine myself to the basement, ground and first floor as I had heard some pretty scary accounts about the top floor being very dangerous, although a couple of the lads did head up that way.

    Photography: Canon 5D Mark II, 17-40mm lens, tripod mounted with shutter release. I did originally bracket them for post processing in HDR but these are not to everyone's taste so I have dialled back the post processing to very minimal levels.

    The 'fellow' in the initial thread found the visit visually exciting, lots of really subtle shades of colour decay as well as some 'in your face' vistas.
