Ecole Blaeps 17

Abandoned school somewhere in Belgium. This is another shot from this abandoned school. I wen there a second time too. I have to say that I really like goign back to places I've already been, mostly because I think that I get a better point of view of the place than the first time. This time I met a guy in the building, I think he was as scared as me that we met. He didn't seemed to speak french, I explained him basically that I was just taking pictures, he said ok and then left the building. I think he was sleeping there...

Full set on my photography website, as usual.

Brasserie B

Abandoned brewery somewhere in Belgium. I found this old brewery while exploring an abandoned swimming pool. The brewery was located just next to the swimming pool. I wasn't really sure if it was really abandoned, though it looked like it was, because there were cars in the courtyard. I found a way in, and notice that it was not used as a brewery anymore but as a softair playground instead. I explored the building finding nothing interesting because it was in a really bad state, and just when I  decided I was going to leave, I found a beautiful room with some machines in it. Finally I left, happy that I could at least took some interesting pictures of it.

Full set available on my urbex photography website.

Usine Shelt: second visit

Abandoned steelwork factory somewhere in Belgium. I paid a second visit to this beautiful factory to show it to a friend. We had a lot of luck that day because the sun was shining an it created beautiful rays of light in the building. I don't really know why, but I like this place very much, maybe because of the quietness of the place.

Autumn waterscape

Autumn waterscape. I took this picture for a contest a few years ago and it won the first place. Strangely, a lot of people have problems understanding this picture, some even thought it was a photography of a painting. In fact, it is a long exposure shot of a waterfall. The yellow leaf was stuck in the algae and I thought it was a nice contrast with the reflecting blue sky in the water.

You can see more of my nature shots on my photography website.

Hospice des vieillards

Abandoned hospice somewhere in Belgium. This old people home has been abandoned is a very nice place, even though part of it has already been demolished. What remains of it is some patient rooms, offices, but the most interesting part of it is probably the chapel. I didn't had much time unfortunately to explore it, so I haven't seen all of it, but I'll go back there soon !

As usual, you see the full set on my urbex photography website.
