A grand abandoned Police Station in Belgium.
A beautiful large dentists house left abandoned in Belgium. A full dental surgery remains here.
Abandoned places are often overgrown.
More often outside than in. However on the odd occasion it does appear or work its way inside.
Usually creeping in through window frames or broken panes.
Sometimes though you find the less ordinary. From mould or fungi, a lone sprout and even full on plant life.
Here is a selection of my favourite shots where nature has taken over.
A large amount of mould growing on the windowsill in this abandoned Belgian monastery.
A serious amount of overgrowth in this derelict fort in Belgium.
A lone sprout in a warehouse of a large unused factory in the UK.
Overgrowth creeping in to this bedroom in an abandoned UK farmhouse.
Moss on the floor and even the ceiling in this derelict military barracks in Germany.
An injection of green as plant life creeps in through the window of this abandoned UK hospital.
A grass carpet covers the floor of this room in a derelict asylum in Wales.
The fine overgrowth here seems like an alien lifeform spreading across the room in this bedroom of an abandoned RAF base in the UK.
Vines spreading over the rustic kitchen sink in this abandoned Manor house in the UK.

The Urbex photography scene is predominantly big wide epic shots with front to back sharpness, a bit of blur makes a break from the norm.
Around Christmas 2013 I bought a Samsung NX1100 CSM. It was quite a bargain and nice and small. The idea of it was an every day camera. Much easier than carrying round an SLR. Later inthe year I got a 16mm 2.4 lens for it and I love it. Really straight lines and beautiful soft bokeh.
It is great for a first post of a new location, a small tease of what its really like due to the shallow DOF and a lot of the image being out of focus.
Here is a small selection of images I have taken with this lens/camera combo.

While on my travels of abandoned places I sometimes find pianos and organs forgotten and left to rot. Musical instruments are always beautiful and it is such a shame they get left and forgotten.
A grand piano left in an abandoned college. Shortly after this visit the college was demolished. I wander if the piano was saved.
An upright piano found in an abandoned hospital. Due to the popular use of his location. I believe this was added at a later date as a prop.
Various books lay on top of an organ overlooking an abandoned church.
A grand piano used as a prop for a short film is now left in this abandoned hospital.

Quite often you find nice reflections in abandoned buildings. Here are a selection of a few favourites I have taken while on my travels in search of abandoned buildings.
After dodging workmen I finally found my way to the rooftop. Main idea was to enjoy the view of the city of London. I turned round to see a better view. The moment the image came up on the LCD I smiled. Certainly one of my favourite shots.
I Spotted the reflection of the ceiling and thought it looked rather nice. I wanted to get as much reflection as possible, so I ended up with the camera sitting in the pool of water on the ground.
A slightly more discreet reflection here in a bathroom at Salve mater. I think its cool how they are different colours.
Well any shot here is bound to have a reflection. Can't be missing this awesome underground location out though.
An early morning selfie in the beautiful Chateau Lumiere. My partner in crime decided to try and catch some ZZZzzs so I hade the whole place to myself as the sun rose. I lined up this shot and figured it was perfect for me to sit on the stairs.
A perfect time to visit this large abandoned asylum in Essex. Just as the snow had thawed we arrived to find the floors covered in water creating lots of great reflections in the corridors.
What can I say about this location? One of the most amazing car graveyards you could ever see. Such a pleasure to go here and such a fun day out.
Well I noticed the reflections on the altar and that was it. I placed the camera on it and shot in nearly every direction possible!!
The main reason for this visit was to go underground in the main reservoir. However the surroundings are quite pleaasent too. I found the central spot and rested my camera on the ledge of the filtration bed.
Thanks for looking all the titles and images link back to the full set of each location if any of them grab your interest.

One of the draws of abandoned sights has to be the peeling paint. Also wall paper can peel in a pleasing way too.
