So ive dropped off the radar on here in favor of trying to sell out and go work freelance that became a game of the lowest common denominator or how low will you go, clearly national minimum wage does not apply to freelance.
this maelstrom of crap kinda made me down tool and have a hiatus for the last few months bar some reedits of old work. so i bring to you the freshest cut’s of welsh slate bought to you by urbandesolation and http://www.undergroundwales.co.uk/
so onwards with the images of the slate dressing area there will be a few more to come from this set when i get around to doing a full edit
After setting out to shoot the Plymouth Classic Boat 2011 down at Sutton harbor, I noticed the Animal team where doing a demo. Having not seen anything like this since the bike show back in in 2000 or so decided to grab a few shots
Just one more from the quintessential English walk on a sunday, dropping a bit of Simon Roberts on you here ala we english. Looking at using the area here for a pre wedding shoot or maybe after with the bride and groom as its one hell of a back drop.
A former royal navy camp called HMS Royal Arthur used for training and closed a few years ago. The site is in Corsham in Wiltshire, close to a lot of very live military sites, we had a drive by from the MOD plod on the walk up so take care in this area . its very much trashed but clues to its original use can be found under the liberal covering of paint from your local artists.
Just a quick few images from one of the massive stone quarries under Wiltshire. did about 5% of the place, got as far as Clapam junction where the rails that once carried the stone out the quarry meet and sadly ran out of time.
possibly building a plant on a high risk area such as japan no. But again makes you think with the massive cuts in the uk budget and the possible decline in maintenance due to cuts could this happen here
And again digging away at the archive sites here what we have here is the former ww2 base RAF predannack, used during the second world war to defend the western approaches to the English channel. Now used as a satellite runway for RNAS Coldrose and used for fire fighter training and glider use and emergency landing.
came in as peeled cow came out a year later as leather, after being soaked and manipulated for a year in oak baths and all sorts of other natural goodness. Sadly replaced with much faster methods and again the skills gap widens as the traditional skills become obsolete and die out.
If you care to look I’ve started a archive sites section. This will cover the huge backlog of sites and the original content from urban desolation, i will be adding content daily so feel free to swing by n take a look at stuff from the classic cane hill asylum to British cellophane.
