and myself (`thespook
incase you didn't notice) went and visited an old brickworks. It hasn't been used in a long time, and it was quite an experience walking through and seeing all the old machinery and discarded things. The cool thing was that although it must have been a long time ago when it was closed down the place still had that 'just gone' look about it - upturned chairs and tables and discarded documents... just older and with more dust and weather around them.
the site is a goldmine for stock photos and textures, but i had a bit of trouble taking it all in at once in such a short time so i'll probably head on over again and do a more thorough shoot.
