The House of Dirty Stories Part I

Although already finding two locations that day, we weren’t yet satisfied with our catch. Luckily I still had a nearby house on my list. This one family house looked perfectly normal, and there were dozens, if not hundreds of similar ones in town. Most of them dont have Satanic symbols written on doors or brokenContinue reading “The House of Dirty Stories Part I”

Collapse Is Imminent Part II

I did promise a look inside, so here we go. It seems like there were a lot of personal belongings in the house, but it was just too unsafe to enter the rooms. The only way to explore was to look and photograph through the windows and collapsed wall sections. Just look at the greenishContinue reading “Collapse Is Imminent Part II”

Collapse is Imminent Part I

After visiting Ralph’s house, we knew that there was another abandoned building nearby. I had found it on a fellow urbexer’s website, but didn’t really know where to look for it. In this part of town there were only a few roads with houses, so we knew we had to be close. I knew whatContinue reading “Collapse is Imminent Part I”

Ralph’s House Part IV

As I said in my previous post, something didn’t quite add up with the house. There clearly was an upstairs with windows and all, but there was no way in. There were no stairs inside the building, there was no hatch outside the building. As we didn’t find a way in from the outside, weContinue reading “Ralph’s House Part IV”

Ralph’s House Part III

Among the items was also a packet of cigarette papers. It seems that Ralph was a smoker or knew someone who was. More map pages. This one is from the border of Finland and Sweden in Lapland. The shelf also featured Christmas greetings and letters from relatives and friends. The dice were in the package,Continue reading “Ralph’s House Part III”

Ralph’s House Part II

Although there was very little furniture in the house, there were some personal items, which reveal little pieces about Ralph’s life. There were several letters from Ralph’s sibling to him from Sweden. It turned out that there was a lot of family living abroad. Among the personal items was also a fine of 380 marks.Continue reading “Ralph’s House Part II”

Ralph’s House Part I

Outside town, in the woods was a small one family home. Its windows were broken and door unlocked. It was clear nobody had lived here in ages. Nobody had lived here since 2007, to be precise. That was when the inhabitant died. We shall call him Ralph, although that’s not his real name. If thereContinue reading “Ralph’s House Part I”

Under Surveillance

Another day, another friend, another adventure. I had managed to locate a couple of places from Kniexp’s old website, and was on my way to explore them further. They were located in pretty remote places outside town. On the way we found this. Of course I knew about this place earlier. It was a oneContinue reading “Under Surveillance”

The Sorry State of the Mastodon Part V

So this is as high as it gets. The view from the eight floor balcony over the lake really was worth the climb. The sunset was beautiful, but it was a bit difficult to enjoy it when I noticed, that the balcony I was standing on was growing trees from its cracks. Visibility was good.Continue reading “The Sorry State of the Mastodon Part V”

The Sorry State of the Mastodon Part IV

Well I did promise some views, didn’t I. We’re not quite there yet, and the windows are a bit dirty for sightseeing anyway, but this photo actually started a trend I have employed a lot later on in my photography. As the evening light came so beautifully through the window, I started photographing sceneries framedContinue reading “The Sorry State of the Mastodon Part IV”
