    Post your Urbex shots

    Photos of "normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas and industrial facilities" according to Wikipedia. I normally take my RZ for this purpose but recently acquired a Toyo 45A (thankyou scm!) and figured it should get a proper outing.

    I took it to an abandoned railyard with the local analogue users group and a few sheets of Fomapan 100 (click on images for links to higher resolution on my website):





    This is my first image post on LFPF and I'm very new to LF in general, so please let me know what you think of the above. (plus post more).

    Not sure if these count since I was invited to the event (no trespassing required), but I brought my Toyo 45A to a fireman training operation in San Luis Obispo, CA in the late 90s. Shot on T-Max 100 with a Rodenstock Sironar-N 210/5.6.

    So many photo to choose from. Let's go with one industrial, one school and one office building.

    Those are great Sean. I find the school picture especially poignant and interesting. Each window is a separate story-it's like getting 22 pictures in one!

    Sean, that school picture is insane. In a good way.

    Your images look fine. There is some flare in the upper right corner of the last one, made more obvious by it being atop the dim interior of the boxcar. Lenshoods are important, even on multicoated lenses.

    I've always liked this subject.
