A memory of who was once a student..

Let me take you back to the year (1887) when this school was first opened and sadly closed in 2009. Once was a child’s place for education and learning, is now a student’s memory. I personally didn’t start my studies at this school but I do remember sitting in the back seat of my mothers car in my early years, driving past.
As a child I always wondered what the school looked like as it was well hidden between houses. To enter was a nature walk over a creek, through trees and over a field. To me it was a mystery school and adventure school.
The school has been up for sale for a couple of years now as it was being used for a local community group, however it sits, ghostly and Unused. Unless you are an urbex Explorer or a street artist, then this school may have been used by you to create.

Visiting the Governor

I have found going to cemeteries comforting and peaceful, sitting with the dead and admiring their tomb stone’s. It’s amazing to see the different types and to see the work and effort people have to put in to caring for loved ones. In the Toowong Cemetery Brisbane, Australia lays the second Governor of Queensland, Governor Blackall. I went to see him for the second time today and when I got home there was a message in the clouds in the image I took. A cross.

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.
