  • So now to the pictures made exclusivly for CaptainsVoyage...., from inside the school building.

    Well, just one more from outside first


    This is how the main entrance from #450/3 looks from the inside


    We walked the corridors first






    In the basement it was rather dark

    • When walking the basement, I was glad we were two...




      Then we walked room by room.


      A selfie in the chemistry lab..., or what's left of it...

      • Ok..., finally, here's a HDR image of the photographer himself. 'Sterkoder' in action ;-)

        • What an absolutely fantastic opportunity!
          And you sure made the most of it in this exclusive album of evocative images - including spooky ones entirely appropriate to be looking at this Friday the 13th

          • Interesting indeed. And you manage to handle that poor light in a superb way too.!

            • Thank you so much for nice comments. I used my new tripod, ISO 100, in fully Manual settings all the way. In a few images, I set the Pentax to take pictures in the integrated HDR setting.
              In addition, I used a remote control in a mirror-up configuration.
              It HAD to be rather superb, hadn't it ? ;-)

                Yes it had!
                But it's still the human behind the camera who creates the pictures! :-)

                ISO 100 is nice, personally I had probably gone with 400, it reduces time for me as a impatient photographer... :-)

            • Fascinating sir Sterkoder!

              I'm just like you: I do also love these kinds of images and photography, and as you said so perfectly, they are often difficult to do for most people. Most places such as these are off limits to the general public. I know of some location in and around my own city, but I never seem to find the right amount of courage to venture inside them.

                  Brilliant photo ombugge - that spooky house is becoming as overgrown as an ancient Cambodian temple!

              • WAOW.... it's not too long into the future before this one might actually crumble to the ground and all the stories contained within, will be history.

                    Feel particularly drawn to the second image there. I think because the building is more or less holding together, but sagging and spatially distorted-looking and disorienting in a warped science-fiction sort of way.

                • The Slaughter house in Aalesund has been abandoned for several years, but the buildings are still standing.
                  Through this gate thousands of cows has past, to be offloaded at the ramps in the background:


                  From these ramps tonnes of Oxtongue, Oxtail, Ox Filet and other Ox delicacies have been distributed:


                  Whatever happened to the COWS???

                  • Cows replaced by chiecken perhaps.... even turkey's are out here in my end of the country, according to people in the business.
