I found this while I was kayaking down a fjord up island. At first it looked like any other abandoned cabin. Then we found the hundreds of faded negatives, the photographic equipment manuals and the steamer trunk with tattered lingerie. The coloured stains on the bedspread hinted at the true use of this building. The dark room was behind the bedroom but as I had no flash I couldn't capture it.

There were signs of recent activity, however. There was a lonely Full Throttle can on the floor next to a Pepsi that expired in 1984. The presence of a William Gibson Novel also confirms when this place was last inhabited.

Ilford and Pentax were the occupants equipment of choice. Ironic as I was using my Spotmatic F that day.

The location is only accessible by kayak or small boat. This must be why it is so pristine.

Awesomeness. Ilfjord was the best B&W paper in the day. Great phjotos and discovery. You know not to tell where it is, until trust in earned, if ever.

I wonder what 25 year old pepsi tastes like...

hey Ferrum awesome find man, and good pictures. That looks like a really cool abandonment with lots of goodies to take pictures of, must have been a fun time kayaking.

I'm not posting those since the background mountains could reveal the location.

Ilfjord... I love it! Anyone got an enlarger for sale? I could get back into B&W quite easliy.

Agreed, the things I have seen while kayaking are incredible. Arluks rock!

Post by teletubijsNice place but some of the focuses in pictures are weird.


That would be due to the late afternoon lighting, lack of flash and a very very open aperture. Also, I forgot my tripod in the car. Depth of Field is a bitch sometimes. My friend was using an old bed-sheet to reflect light in some shots.

My digital camera is too new to me to warrant its inclusion on a paddle. The Pentax Spotmatic F on the other hand is built like a tank.

hey Ferrum awesome find man, and good pictures. That looks like a really cool abandonment with lots of goodies to take pictures of, must have been a fun time kayaking.


It was a really enjoyable paddle. I've been in some really rough seas and this was a nice deserted, quiet stretch of water. The tides were even in our favour.

Does anyone else here Kayak??

I'd love to form an Urbex Paddling Club. There is a lot to see around here. The old factory on Discovery Island is one place that comes to mind.

Think porn studio but... less savory. Rape Shack might be the better name given the colour and nature of the bedstains... It was not a happy place.

Out of curiosity, did you purposely follow the cookbook with a recipe for escargot with a photo of a dusty snail shell?

Quite an interesting find!

While I hate to say this because I'd love to check this place out sometime, I think that the RCMP might want to know about this place because of that - especially if it's been in use recently.

Pft...my "love shack" on Black Point is WAYYYYYY creepier!!!
