Photographs are only the end results of our journey exploring these forgotten places, here I offer you a glimpse of what happens “Behind the Scenes”.
From searching for locations and the subsequent long and eventful road trips, the path is long and filled with amazing memories with good friends and loved ones. Even when we arrive at the destinations, unexpected and often hilarious antics may be involved with getting inside these lost buildings. Moving around inside these decaying places can be treacherous, and hazards to both body and equipment are prevalent. My camera fell from a fully extended tripod directly on the lens in a French Chateau; a very costly incident!
When it comes to time to leave, we take the photos and memories of our times together with us as the dust settles once more behind us. Whenever I see the photos I am reminded of how something as innocuous as a crumbling building can take you to far off corners of the world you would never normally even think about.
