It has been a while since I have had the chance to head on out and explore some long forgotten places. Seems that in Montreal, the city has decided to crack down on abandoned places and 6-7 spots have been demolished in the last 6 months. With the rise of popularity of urban exploring (aka… Continue reading Ye Old Honeymoon Resort | Urbex Photography
What happens when one huge resort gets millions of dollars of investments and grows both financially and in international popularity? The other ski resorts in the area suffer. And some, like this 100 year old resort, end up closing it’s doors. It has been abandoned since 2009. Remnants of them trying to recoup as much… Continue reading Hitting the hills | urbex
One of the reason I love to explore old buildings is finding links to the past. When a building has furniture, decor and other artifacts left by it’s occupants, you feel like you are stepping back in time. As many kids in the 1980s, when they found the wreckage in 1985, I couldn’t get enough… Continue reading Hidden Resort | Rural Photography
It seems that every time I post an image of an old farm house, abandoned factory or a long forgotten mansion, I get a few emails asking me where the place is.
With the weather hovering around the -28c (-19f) in the city, we decided to take a drive on a beautiful sunny late December day and go find an old abandoned military radar station we had been talking about for a little while. Who needs to be all cozy in a blanket watching a movie, right?
Last weekend, my girlfriend and I decided to get a double dose of urban exploration. We first hit up an old military heating centre in the south shore of Montreal and then headed north of the island to a place we had been wanting to go for some time… an abandoned manor.
I walked by this place a few times years ago. I drove by a few weeks ago and challenge myself to finding a way in. Today was the day. A friend and I parked the car not too far, scouted around, drove to the other side, scouted more, walked through bushes and found our… Continue reading Canada Malting Silos | Montreal urban photography
A few weeks ago, a couple of photographer friends and I decided to take a quick road trip to Detroit, Michigan. Was a last minute decision, having some time off and wanting to go see a city that is going through hard times in hopes of getting some shots we wouldn’t normally have a… Continue reading Welcome to Detroit… we are open
One of the places on our MUST list in Detroit was visiting the ruins of the old Packard Motor plant. Opened in the early 1900s, it stopped car production in the late 1950s, and while some companies used it for storage and such until the 1990s, it’s currently totally empty and has been stripped by… Continue reading Packard Auto Plant | Detroit MI | Urban Photography
Headed out with a friend a week or so ago for a day time photo walk. He took the day off work, I kept my schedule clear. We had a general idea of where we wanted to go, but as always, we end up in a place we never originally planned on. This walk was… Continue reading Urban: Building find | Pt St-Charles | Montreal Urban Photographer
