Filming With Abandon

The rush of urbex.

Nothing like it.

Fear, panic, danger, excitement, adrenaline, anticipation and elation are just some of the words that best describe the peculiar lure of Urbex.
Discovering an abandoned building for the first time can feel something like this…It’s an unwritten rule amongst Urbex and Rurex explorers never to divulge (even to each other) where they find their locations.
There are many reasons for this, not least it leaves the location a mystery for the next Urbex/Rurex person to discover.Often, the hunt for these places is as much fun as the kill. Also, were everyone to know where these places are and how access was gained, it could cause legal problems for the explorer and vandalism at the location.
Urbex/Rurex explorers also have a rule that nothing is ever removed or damaged on the premises. Obviously this location has been trashed but many other places are in really good condition.

      We need one conveniently placed in the picture to juxtapose the contextualisation of societial malaise against a foreground of aloof financialness ness

    I think it’s fair to say that ship has sailed.

    Gosh! Peopleless homes. Fear, panic, danger, excitement, adrenaline, anticipation and elation around every corner.

      the only reason you’d go to one of these places is to rig up a sound system that, when triggered, blasts out ‘URBEX PROFANER! NOW YOU MUST DIE!! MWA-HA-HA-HA!!!

    Great site with loads of European as well as UK exploration pics. Look for the abandoned Chateau in Belgium (I think) and the basement full of classic cars! All left to rust to death..
