Just a hello and introduction~

I'm fairly new to this community but not quite to this pasttime. Just thought I would introduce myself and offer the collection of (199) some-odd photos of my explorations. I live in Muskego, WI; Wisconsin is pretty well known, I think, for it's farming community and all that boring stuff.

I've really only explored a few abandoned factories, some houses, and there's a few I haven't uploaded yet but there are a few roadside places we've dipped into as well.

Hoping to visit some places in IL soon, I have friends down there that are interested and it would be a fun day trip. Malls, hospitals, schools - It'll be exciting!

Uh, I don't consider myself a photographer but I love taking these pictures.

Something I've always done is looked through people's galleries online (deviantART or otherwise) and have seen pictures of abandoned places like this and have just... wished I could do smething like that. It's an awesome feeling to go to my own gallery and just marvel at where I've been.

I won't be the first to admit I'm a little shy...! So please be gentle with me until I'm used to this whole community thing.

I haven't been exploring for a while ((it's been far too hot)) but I update my urban exploring deviantart the night of, or morning after the exploration. I suppose I will start updating here, too!

Here it is! I hope you enjoy them. :3
