Beautiful Dereliction

My sister let me in on the whereabouts of a secret derelict location somewhere not so far away, so we spent a few minutes exploring it the other day.

There is a bit of a niche interest at the moment in shooting derelict urban sites so, not to be left out, here are some photos I shot.

We wanted to respect the site and so we only stayed for a few minutes and we did get permission from someone who lived on the same land. Sneaking onto derelict sites is not something I am endorsing – it’s trespassing and it can be a health and safety risk.

Three thoughts:

1. Nature reclaims the planet quickly once humans leave the scene.

2. Dereliction can feel a bit creepy.

3. Dereliction can be beautiful.
