2012, My nephew Jascha Hoste and myself went trew the english and Scottish Landscape to visit Urbex-Locations, Mainly…Asylums..and …Powerrrplants.
We met with a scotisch Photographer Derek and a few friends of him to vist this very old -hospital/asylum that dated around the 1900´s.
We went in and seperated in different ways…at least i was.
There was this moment i heard a enormous bang when i was looking what was behind the other doors while i was shooting an HDR (HighDefinitionRange/3Photos).
I returned to my camera and feeled not at ease, i feld i had to go immediatly…only my camera was still making the picture….and counted till 30…seem longer than 30 seconds..when i looked on the camera i saw the last one was overlighted but couldnt care less,,,just GET OUT..
When i was upstairs this feeling was gone again as fast as it came…This is the hdr i made that moment…i can’t know if this is a honest technical mistake or something that was in front of the lens….if you what can cause this,,,no light was used when making these pitures..
Charbonnage Sauwartan – Belgium
October 1938, the coal mine closed, which has been mining coal since the late 18th century.
In this coal-mine there has been accidents, in 1847, 57 miners were killed and in 1880 another 9 more.
The concrete shaft, according to “Les Charbonnages du Borinage” was built later on.
