Urbex & Buildings
Urbex is short for urban exploring which literally means exploring urban places or buildings, usually abandoned. But it can just as well take place in rural areas, such as villages and hamlets.
Urban exploring is a combination of making beautiful artistic pictures of decay and of adventure. Discovering the unknown and capturing its beauty. Urban exploring is practiced by urban explorers.
Visiting abandoned buildings and/or sites is our way of urban exploring. We like it all, but our favorite places to go and see are castles, mansions, former hospitals or asylums. Churches can also be interesting. Often these buildings have been badly damaged by the ravages of time. We find abandoned buildings or sites very intriguing because of the architecture, desolation and history.
