  4. Absolutely hooked on your website, which I have just stumbled across whilst checking out similar interests on other sites.
    The photos you take are fascinating as well as creepy and mysterious!
    I love the abandoned houses that have stood still in time for years untouched…. and how you are able to access so many abandoned buildings, it saddens me to know there is not much where I live in the uk abandoned and worth capturing with a camera. I would love nothing more than to experience your abandoned building visits!
    Love your work, and love how well this website is put together. Will be sharing this with my friend who loves this stuff just as much as me!
    Many thanks for this website, I’m going to enjoy looking for hours I’m sure!
    Keep up the great work.

  5. Thank you!
    I have followed your website and facebook page for quite awhile now. I envy you and your passion for discovering the story behind these abandoned locations. I have always wanted to start urban exploring and with a recent health scare I am determined to start now.
    Luckily where I live I have many to choose from!
    I look at the pictures you take and I can see the families who lived there, their children running around the yard, up the stairs, eating in the kitchens. Some houses have a sad story and are left due to a death in the family, others are alone due to the expansion of houses or highways. I love the fact you provide details of the houses you explore. Again, thank you, you have lit the fire within me to get out there and build on my passion.

    Some nicely composed and exposed photographs! I also live in Burlington, and know my way around cameras. Contact me if you think you might be interested in a companion on one of your jaunts, or if you’d be willing to share the location of any local spots worth investigating. Good luck with your venture.

    Freaktography, you and all your urbex friends are absolutely inspiring!!! I have wanted to urbex for a while and finally started last summer after getting a camera that was worth using. I love photography and history and urbex seemed the perfect thing that incorperates both of those things into one incredible hobby. Your youtube channel inspired me to follow what I love.
