A place someone calls Home

Urban Exploring for me has become a lot more then looking at abandoned buildings, trains and Homes. The more I explore , the more I learn not all places are abandoned and that some places are still home.  Home is a story, every house and everyone has one.

In 2011 Ipswich QLD faced flooding, and since then the local bowling Alley has been shut down. A week before I attend the bowling Alley to have a look another Urban explorer attended the site stating a door was open. The week I attended the site no door was open and rumours the site being refurnished again had come about.

I can not wait to see what the owners have in stall for this Building.

Did you know we have about 70,000 thoughts a day? Because i didnt until my mum told me. This blog post doesnt have a specific topic but can I gloat about how proud I am of me, cause its too late to ring mum.

I have joined the Reclaim the night committe board and Im proud. Its something my mum and I share a passion for. Plus mum took me to RTN protests when i was in primary school, 15 years ago.

What is RTN?

RTN, Reclaim The Night start in Belgium, Germany. There was a conference held in 1976 both men and woman. At the conference mainly men were speaking disrespectfully of woman and the woman heard leading them to march the streets of belgium, which became world wide.

October is Sexual violance awareness month, the theme is we believe you. We believe victims of rape and sexual violance.

Im in Australia. Im on the RTN committee to let woman know I believe them, I will walk with them to end violance against woman and their children, I am also a victim, they are not alone.

Built in 1920, what is known to be Red Hill Skate Rink to urban explorers and the local community of Red Hill started as “Pops Popular Pictures.”

In 1969, the building was then transformed into a local sound lounge popular amongst teenagers before it became a Skate Rink a year later.

Due to Arson and a fiery blaze in year 2002 the building was left to stand alone.

Its now 2019 and new renovations have started inside the building creating a cinema, a ten million dollar job.
