Urban exploration, urbex or UE, is the examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of human civilisation. Abandoned industry, hospitals and even military bases. UE has many, many faces. It has grown to encompass more than just urban (meaning related to the city) exploration. Many of the places people explore are not in or by the city.
The interest in this hobby comes from looking for and looking at places that most people go by and completely ignore, if not avoid.
Armed with flashlight, helmet and cameras we search for natural decay, as nature grows trees on the roof and weeds in the carpet.
