A Very Interesting Website

It's quite obvious that I love dereliction and that love goes beyond the photographs and the police interviews as I also very much enjoy looking at other people's photos and websites.

Well, I found a site recently called Derelict London and I have to say it's simply marvellous. After spending pretty much an entire evening poring over the photos contained therein, I now have a serious hankering to jump on a train and hit the capital city with The Fuji, just roaming around taking photos of the places and sites featured on Derelict London.

The site owner, Paul Talling, has done a terrific job with his site, and also a sister site called London's Lost Rivers. It's this sort of hidden/secret history that really resonates well with me and Paul's site has given me impetus to get my aging backside down to London and get with the snapping.

Paul has also written a couple of books that the websites accompany, so I may just avail myself of them in the not-too-distant future.
