In The Netherlands, next to nothing is left abandoned to fall into a derelict state so Urbex (Urban Exploring) or such places are so well secured it's near impossible to get inside. Hence the need to travel further afield, Belgium being the easiest choice. Yesterday I headed south east with a dedicated group of fellow photographers from PhotographySchool.NL's Pathway in search of some dereliction armed only with my Fuji X-T1 with 10-24mm attached and a much needed tripod.
First stop was Verviers where the old abandoned barracks with its large rooms with colourful peeling paint and fascinating cell block provided us with a fabulous introduction to this genre of photography.
Moving to Liege, the abandoned barracks was a maze of dark and dingy interiors, covered in graffiti and trees growing out of the roofs.
A long way to travel for a day of image making but so worth it.
