Maison Boon, a location that I will never forget. Not because it is such a beautiful location, but because of the smell … Laying in the freezer was rotting meat. It’s been there since the house is empty and that is certainly about 20 years. I quickly took a few photos and left again.

When we wanted to leave the grounds, a not so cheerful lady came out of the house next door. She shouted, “Have you forgotten something?”. What, according to our Belgian fellow urbexer, means get out. It turns out that we were lucky. On several blogs I’ve read that the neighbors are not so friendly. They have punctured tires, damaged cars and destroyed cameras in the past. Ah yes, all in all a nice location 😉

This is a good example why I feel the wide-angle and the tripod spoilt me. I want to get eeeverything on one picture – which might be nice in this case.
But I really need to go back to do more detail shots. They’re still my best.

A pet cemetery in Louisiana. From what I understand, the owner shot her first husband which was deemed self-defense. Her second husband was fatally shot as well, though no charges were filed.

She was later killed in ‘85 and her body dumped into the Mississippi River where the case remained unsolved. It wasn’t until just a few years ago when the former groundskeeper turned himself in, claiming her ghost was haunting him and thought that turning himself in would silence her whisperings.

Merry Christmas!

This is a patient’s room inside of the children’s ward at an abandoned mental hospital. There were lots of toys left behind, many of which were for pre-schoolers or younger. Makes you think if the children who stayed here were that young, or if they just had the mentally of someone so young.

I haven’t posted much in a while, I’ve been busy traveling, working on a new book and updating my website. Speaking of website, you can find the whole photo set form this location by visiting here: . I’ll be posting more again in a few weeks once I get home and settled. 

“Xanadu” Home Prototype – YouTube

:

I usually don’t do video but I felt photos alone would not show how crazy and unique this place is. 

This home was built in the 70s as a joint project to build a home using sustainable resources while being highly energy efficient. This was the prototype. Based on this home, a company was formed and went a step further in building what they deemed was the “Home of the Future” which is known by many as “Xanadu”.
