No booties

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

A small look at some material I'm currently working on.

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.

Cold.  Windy.  Very High.  Did I mention very cold?

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!

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.

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.
