Alder Hey Childrens Hospital

Alder Hey Children's Hospital Visited with: Alex Visit Date: August 2016 Please Note: Entry is always through an open access point and not by forcing our way in….. We are explorers, not vandals. My Visit I have to say that this visit one was of mixed emotions, the deadly quiet of this once bustling hospital allowed the mind to wander and wander it did. I could not help but feel sad at the thought of the pain, heartache and worry that so many children, parents and staff will have had to bare here over the years..... But then, a feeling of happiness, a happiness that a child is getti[...]

My Visit For those who know me or read my reports you will know that I love churches and I was hoping this one would not disappoint.

Lifestyle Shoot - Fleetwood Fishermen

I had been looking to do a lifestyle shoot aboard the Sursum Corda aka Rio for around 6 months, however, finding the correct weather and at the time I was planning to shoot was all down to Mother Nature and boy, did she make me wait. The conditions I had been waiting for was to have a fairly calm sea because I did not want to end up with a bunch of blurred photographs due to the motion of the boat throwing myself and the camera around. Also, I was hoping to have nice clouds in the sky with some nice sunlight. To me there is nothing worse than an empty bland sky, clouds add so much more to a[...]

We are explorers, not vandals. My Visit This was the second location of the day out of 3 successful explores and it is by far my favourite of the day. Even though this place is decayed to a level that is almost beyond repair it still holds the most character and charm out of the 3 locations. As you can probably tell I am so glad we got to see the beauty that is ‘The Church of [...]
