No booties

What I'm guessing are employee common areas at this particular factory.

Dear +Rogers Communications, just so you know, online bill payments don't work from your website... Tried multiple browsers, get a blank window after clicking on the 'Pay' link.

Those of you in Canada, perhaps you've been following the Trans-Pacific Partnership that aim to censor the Internet?  If not, please have a look below.

Gallery Exhibition in Toronto

A little bit of shameless self-promotion... I'll be exhibiting a couple of works from last year's urban exploration trip to Europe at an upcoming gallery exhibition in Toronto.

As such, drop by, check out my work as well as the work of other local photographers at the Moniker Gallery (Spadina/Richmond area) on opening night July 18th between 7-11pm.  The exhibit runs from the 18th to the 24th.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Lucy, it went quite well. Variety of themes presented by local photogs. My urbex stuff got quite a bit of interest and attention. Was a nice way to dip my foot into the exhibit world.

High Pressure Photography

In most of the urban explorations I have done, the experience is generally quiet, calm, and with a minimal amount of stress.  This photo was taken under conditions exactly opposite to that.  After spending most morning dodging security patrols my group found ourselves in this jet propulsion test chamber shortly after the said patrol rounded up a few explorers.  At this point, highly on edge, being able to focus on creating the photograph I wanted was quite a challenge.

As on you can see by some of my gear being visible in the frame, I was only partially successful!  While not a great photo in and of itself, the personal story that goes along with it for me will make it a lifelong memory.

Primary Colours

Awesome classroom in a school that's currently undergoing renovations.  Thankfully I managed to get a good glimpse of this place before it's fully repurposed.  While it's not necessarily evident from this photo alone, this was arguably one of the most symmetrical places I've ever visited.  For someone who's a bit OCD, it was fantastic.

Silent Study

This former veterinary school will be converted into residential suites.  I can only imagine how amazing the suites will be with the massively tall ceilings and huge windows.  The architectural details that were common place for non-residential buildings will make for a very unique place to live in.

Militant Repurposing

In addition to the visual aesthetic that obviously attracts me to abandonements, one of the things I enjoy about this hobby is having the opportunity to learn a little bit of history about the places I visit and be able to see visual evidence of a site's previous use.

This particular complex was built in the 1800s as a fort, it was then used as a barracks, prison, and even a military hospital.  While exploring here, if you're observant, you'll definitely see traces of each of these uses.

Observation:  More duplicate posts since the introduction of communities?

Since Google+ communities were introduced, I've noticed a large number of duplicate posts amongst those people whom I happen to have circled.  I've noticed that people are posting the same content to both a particular community as well as their public feed.  As far as I can tell, when you make a post to a public community, it is also visible on your own public feed to anyone that has you circled.

Do people just not realize this or am I missing something?  Personally, it's getting a bit frustrating for me, I'm not far from the point where I'm either going to be uncircling people or leaving communities.  I don't think this is what the Google+ team had in mind.

Thoughts?

I just wish more people understood that.

And stop using them to share photos. That shit is for Facebook hillbillies.
