See a couple stories of my poking around this location here:
One of my less-exciting sites that provokes less imagination still has plenty of interest.
At one point I crawled into an open manhole that lead into what was the inner workings of some long-dismantled machine. Shattered glass tubes and pavers' remains were the only things that were interesting-- other than the wasps.....
*Popped out quickly enough after I got to them.*
Around the lot were many deep pits, some full of water, some full of mud, some full of bricks.
Tall, steep hills of dumped debris shot up above me, and I'd climb them, poke around, look for things of interest-- like debossed pavers and insulators that survived destruction by heavy equipment.
Same went for any mount of dirt and debris.
Rusted steel cables reached up toward the sky, sagging in oppressive heat under a punishing sun glaring down harshly upon all there-- rusted cables seeming to cry out to God for salvation with the last vestiges of the strength they possesed.
What was an early 1900s factory (expanded many times) is now no longer even the ruins you see photographed. What was left was meant to be bull-dozed and filled in, as it is now and forever resides under tons of dirt and, lately, snow.
I'd brought out a number of finds, only a couple being of real interest. I'd gone down into this lot many times and spent many hours walking it, thus giving me much to write about in my own place I usually post my adventures in.
Obviously, I cycled there one day with my camera-- so my viewers could come with me, in a sense. It was the first time I'd done that.
Come Spring, I will photograph other locations, such as one where I got cut pretty badly on glass but continued digging, thus smearing blood all over the foundation of what may have once been some sort of dance-hall (judging on artifacts) now engulfed in trees.
