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.
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.
My love and interest in street art has come a long way from capturing the streets of Nambor and caloundra, to now exploring old run down buildings covered in graffiti. The images I have here are from a couple of places close to home, Seq, Ipswich.
Whilst exploring the country near home, I discovered some on QR trains. They are still owned and unfortunately due to a rule of urban exploring I am unable to hand out location.
