This one's a doosey. Probably one of my favorite explores ever. I could spend weeks in here finding new things to shoot. It's days are numbered but I'm truly happy to have documented it. No graffiti or vandalism made it all the better.

AWESOME set man. Good work!

Breathtaking! You really did the place justice, much more than I did. It definitely seems like it's a better experience during the day. I can't belive I missed that 2nd control room, it looks amazing! Nice work!




I'm here for a good time not a long time.

Thanks! The 2nd one is not easy to find. I needed some help. Its nice at night too but for photography purposes some areas are much easier during the day.

Thanks! I almost didn't take that shot since I assumed it wouldn't work. But it's one of my favorites now.

Wow! Awesome set. The control rooms looked great. I also think #34 stood out as a really cool photo.

A lot of great shots!

I've spent may an hour on one of those radial arm drills in #17. Brings back memories.

I can never seem to get any decent pictures of industrial sites. You, on the other hand, killed it with these. Like others, I especially like 34. Definitely a unique angle

Thanks! Industrial sites can be difficult. Some of these shots were taken in very low light at iso 200-800 and the shutter open awhile.

Nice Pics! Always cool to see pics of places like this before the scrappers get to it.

This place always was too difficult for the scrapers and taggers to get too. The only ones scraping it are the new owners.

Oh this place! It is so beautiful, my friend has really been trying to get me to get into here but I always thought it was way TOO risky. But I might have to bite the bullet and try it. There's been so much controversy about whether to demolish it or preserve it. In my opinion, they should preserve it.
