Encino and Vaughn

I keep forgetting about this community as it's so quiet!

I am taking one other, and anyone else who joins in between now and the meet time, to Encino and Vaughn on Saturday. Places are ripe for the photos if you've ever toured flickr's search engine for them!

If you want to car pool or just to follow my lead (or I follow you, whatever!) we'll be meeting at the northeast corner of the Target lot on Lomas/Eubank just off I40 at 9am. Vaughn is only 20 minutes away from Encino so we will be dining at Penny's.

If you're in let me know so I can email you my cell #.

Exploring. is sometimes and Adventure.

posted by: killbox in abq_urbex

This last weekend, a few fellow Photographers, and I (this included 4 people ive explored before with atleast a little in the past)

We wanted to go do something a little less urban, We wanted to head out to some ruins of a nearby ghost town. I'd been by once as a kid, and then once as a photographer with some friends in 2006, And was anxious to go back and see more of it. Google earth indicated i had seen the big structures, but missed several foundations an 2 mineheads. And who knows what other discoveries there were to see, I was also anxious to see what i could do now that im a little better photographer.

Once our group was assembled we too 2 cars on out, Passing Coyote, and found it(Hagen) just about as easily as I remembered it, still looked like it did in 2006,

Hopefully a real post soon, Its not really Albuquerque urbex more like Urbexnm.

posted by: killbox in abq_urbex

But since ive still not found the time to really setup my urbexnm blog,

I will a little later on in this week post a little excursion a few of us went on this last Saturday.

It was fraught with bad timing and poor luck, but still should be good, and ive got a bunch of photos up on flickr, more later on in the week.

Another Urbex meetup?

Feb. 15th, 2011 | 05:04 pm
posted by: killbox in abq_urbex

Its been pretty quiet for a while, and despite the economy leaving more and more shuttered places ive really not found any new exceptional finds.

With spring being a few months away, Anyone interested in a meeting so fellow urbexers can get re-acquainted with each other and perhaps swap some sites/ideas/plans for outings?

Some urban exploration in Japan.

Probably what is considered NSFW because it is some sort of otaku site plastered with manga boobs.
Awesome pictures though.

I ought to document some of the exploration opportunities in Socorro for you all.
