"Urban explorers are a bit like children...if you tell them not to do something, they're going to do it anyway..."
This week, Urban Exploration has surprisingly been in the news a fair bit. With articles ranging from what it's all about to asking the public whether urban explorers pose a threat to national security. For something that is secretive, for the most part, and often overlooked and not thought of, there has been a fair bit of discussion! There is also an article claiming that Urban Exploration Photographs Pose a Security Risk. Admittedly, I can see a bit of where they're coming from but honestly, the whole thing is a bit hyped up. What are your thoughts on this? Are you an Urban Explorer that doesn't consider themselves a security risk? Or are you a bystander that thinks all urban explorers are a threat? Check out this article for a bit more of the latest gossip.
Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures.

This series of articles aims to highlight exactly what Urban Exploration is, how it's achieved and the some of the best Urbex Photographers here on deviantART.
