Urban Exploration News

Wed Nov 26, 2014, 10:00 AM

"Leave only footprints...
...Take only Photos."



Urbex has been in the news fairly recently with a few more articles spilling out about current happenings and highlighting explorations. It is becoming a fairly modern activity and more and more people are becoming interested in the venture. Urban exploration has reached new heights lately as an Independent Polish group of Urban Explorers called Adventure Hunters have published video showcasing beautiful and mysterious places which have been the inspiration for a video game. Many forgotten and beautifully decaying places have been highlighted putting Urbex in the spotlight once again.

Across Europe, a group of Photographers have explored abandoned places in Ireland, documenting and highlighting their decay.
Some of the venues include a once famous Courthouse - now abandoned and left to the elements. You can read more about the project here.



Featured Urbex Photographer


This month I'd love to draw your attention to BarryByrd who has a gallery that fully documents his urban exploring. Barry has been here for just over two years and has already made his mark on the Urbex community not only capturing abandoned buildings but often shooting models within them to create a contrast between beauty and decay.

Want to embark on Urban Exploration?


There are always the usual safety warnings - think of yourself before your photos, as much as it might hurt you to do so! There are lots of places online that host databases of Urbex locations both locally (UK) and globally. Check out some of the following for more information:

I took this on Sunday at the water meadow! Loved going back there and enjoying the early morning frost and dew. The sunlight just made this the perfect moment. :)

Time to dust off the camera again! Maisy arrived yesterday - she's just a year old and is a rescue dog from a local dogs trust. She's a collie cross but the best thing is she has ginger eyebrows! We love her :aww:

Monthly Bake Off!

Sat Nov 1, 2014, 3:00 AM

Bake Off! Has just a few more days to go - get baking your bread and enter!

The monthly Bake Off! is designed to make you bake or cook something! You have a whole month to plan what you'd like to do and there are various ways in which you can win some prizes.

Bread by Kaz-DBread1 by Kaz-D

This month the theme is 'Bread.' You can interpret this how you wish! I certainly didn't bake these rolls from scratch but used a packet mix (cheating but oh so tasty!) and got a little creative with how I arranged them. It would be good to include the recipe in your commets, or a link to the recipe if you took inspiration from elsewhere. It will help with regards to the prizing criteria listed below too...

:bulletblack: - Entries must follow the rules of Still Life Photography - no body parts!
:bulletblack: - One entry per person please!
:bulletblack: - Entries must be your own work.
:bulletblack: - Entries must have minimal photo-manipulation
:bulletblack: - Stick to the theme but interpret it how you wish!
:bulletblack: - Include the recipe and that it's for the Still-Life-Stills contest in your artist comments.
:bulletblack: To enter contribute your entry to this folder.


Photographic Talent


1 x 6 month subscription
300 Points

Recipe Talent

Dates and Deadlines

I came to deviantART looking for an outlet to share my literature work. Imagine my surprise when I look back now and find myself, eight years later, a Photography Community Volunteer and an avid Photographer. In fact, I've just spent a year taking a handful of Photos every day as part of the 365 challenge. If you want to talk to me about motivation, inspiration, finding things to Photograph and general 'sticking at stuff' then do please give me a shout!

I started off three years ago as the Abstract and Surreal Photography CV, I then took on Conceptual as well and now I cover General Photography along with 3wyl. My every day work, like so many of us here, is unrelated to Art almost completely.

I'm about to embark on a career as a Care Manager for my local council. I just finished studying a degree in Social Policy and Criminology and I'm about to move into my first house with TouchedD! In my spare time (whenever that is) I like to explore the world with TouchedD, poke dead things with a stick and take my dog who has naughty feet, for walkies.

Daily Deviation Guidelines


Photobucket


I'm one of two General Photography CVs!



  • 3wyl and I only take Photography suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps). We also cannot feature anything from a gallery that already has CV looking after it. Check out communityrelations for the latest list.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest


Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.
I try and reply to all suggestions made.
