Urbex Images - Flickr Friday Favorites

This is the fourth installment of Flickr Friday Favorites. For the uninitiated, The Urban Exploration Photography Blog has its own Flickr group called Urbex Images. Members of the group add their photographs to the group pool. Each week I look over all of the photographs added to the group and pick my favorites to be featured right here.

There are so many great images added everyday that it is impossible to show you all of them that deserve attention. You'll just have to go over to the group and see them all yourself. Also, I ask for permission to use each image, and sometimes I don't get permission or sometimes the permission comes in too late for an image to make the blog post. This really is just a small sampling.

As you can clearly see, there are a number of highly talented photographers in the group. I'm honored to be able to share with you some of their photographs on my blog. Thank you to all who participated in this!

I really like the dark and moody feel of this image. It's depressing, which is sometimes difficult to

convey in abandonment photography.

This is an interesting photograph to me because, in photography theory, it shouldn't work, but it so

obviously does. Great use of repeated shapes and contrast.
Supreme Club - Los Angeles, California January 2015 by DJ NITELIFE
I like the retro look of this image--it has a film-like quality. You can visit his website by clicking here.
Untitled by Seb lessandroni
I like the abstractness of this photograph. It has a nice pattern, great contrast, and even a little

negative space in what is otherwise a busy scene.
the MG Magnette by FanFan Babii or just plain Buffan
The eyes are drawn immediately to the headlight, which becomes the anchor as one explores the

rest of the scene. This was certainly a great find.
Robe by Charles Bodi
It's a vast space, but careful use of contrast draws the viewer to the "robe" which is the subject of 
this image. You can visit his website by clicking here.
The Nurse Barbarella's Room by Frank Grace
Lots of repeated lines and shapes. Contrast is somewhat subtle but well used. I like the use of color in this image. You can visit his website by clicking here.
Roll out....$$$$$$$ by skel bone
Simplicity. It's a cart in the corner of a room. Note the black line leads the viewer from the bottom-left straight to the main subject. The lighting is good, too.
Glasses by Jo-Anne Praught
Another simple photograph. What I like is the contrast. By composing the image so that the bright area is behind the dark frames, the viewer is immediately drawn to it.
