Lori Nix: The City

Lori Nix: The City

Meet the girl blogger who sneaked inside Russian missile factory... and found no security By Damien Gayle Updated: 00:49 GMT, 8 January 2012 These incredible pictures were taken by a young Russian woman after she crept inside a factory belonging to one of the world's top manufacturers of liquid-fuel rockets. Lana Sator found her way into one of NPO Energomash's huge factories outside the Russian capital Moscow, without coming across a single security guard - or indeed any other employees at all. But she could now be in some serious trouble with the Russian government. Lana Sator poses on machinery at the crumbling Energomash plant outside Moscow You can't see me: Ms Sator poses cheekily next to a CCTV camera in the plant Truth is stranger than (science) fiction: This picture looks like something from the Death Star, but is actually the inside of the Energomash plant Out of service? The lights are on... but nobody seems to be home: This photograph shows the heavy machinery that built liquid-fuel rockets used to send astronauts into space

Corner View - Holiday Pics - Butlin's Hello to the Corner Viewers! Since a large proportion of this blog already consists of a fair amount of my vacation pics, (enough already, right!?) and because this week's theme was chosen by our itinerant Brit, Ian, at An Englishman Abroad, I thought I would share somebody else's idea of vacation pics. These come from a book called "Our True Intent is All for Your Delight" (2002) and it is a book of photographs taken at a number of England's Butlin's Holiday camps* in the 1960's and 1970's by the Irish photography studio, John Hinde. Elmar Ludwig, Edmund Nagele and David Noble. picture postcards that inspired a young Martin Parr, now a very well-known English photographer specializing in similarly highly saturated and almost hyper-real photographs of English people enjoying their leisure activities. Butlin's is still in operation as you'll see if you click the link above, but does not remotely any longer resemble these pictures, sadly. Cheers!

Exploration urbaine Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Explorateurs à l'entrée d'une galerie technique en cours de construction à Paris, France L’exploration urbaine, abrégé urbex (de l'anglais urban exploration), est une activité consistant à visiter des lieux construits par l'homme, abandonnés ou non, en général interdits d'accès ou tout du moins cachés ou difficiles d'accès. Présentation[modifier | modifier le code] L'exploration urbaine, au sens propre, désigne le fait de recueillir des données sur des zones publiques du paysage urbain, délaissées tout ou partie du temps, en vue d'y accéder et de les utiliser. Cette activité, bien que clandestine et faite sans l'autorisation des éventuels propriétaires, n'est prohibée en France que par quelques décrets, arrêtés préfectoraux, ou règlements internes de certaines administrations.

Abandoned Amusement Parks Continuant leurs séries sur les lieux abandonnés, c’est aujourd’hui aux parcs d’attractions que Andreas, Reginald Van de Velde ou Chris Luckhardt se sont attaqués. Ils photographient avec nostalgie ces endroits autrefois voués au divertissement et aujourd’hui flétris, sur lesquels la nature a repris ses droits.

National Geographic's Photography Contest 2010 National Geographic is once again holding their annual Photo Contest, with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 30th. For the past eight weeks, they have been gathering and presenting galleries of submissions, encouraging readers to rate them as well. National Geographic was again kind enough to let me choose some of their entries from 2010 for display here on The Big Picture. Collected below are 47 images from the three categories of People, Places and Nature. Captions were written by the individual photographers. (47 photos total) Kanana Camp, Botswana.

These Photos Of Abandoned Asylums Will Keep You Awake Tonight They're the stuff of every horror flick you've ever seen -- but they're real. Photographer Dan Marbaix -- of Odins Raven Photography -- has always had a thing for abandoned buildings. When he visited the now-defunct West Park Hospital in England, he realized asylums have everything a photographer wants. Asylums were made so nobody would have to leave, he told HuffPost Weird News, and now, years later, everything is still in place: Beds, photos, and even hair salons are still intact. And they're as creepy as ever. Marbaix declined to give much identifying information about the locations in his photos, saying that many of them end up vandalized and ransacked. "I actually like taking photos of all things abandoned, but I have a particular love of asylums because of their size and range of environments," Photographer Dan Marbaix says.
