Urban Exploration of Abandoned Hospital

Hi Guys,

These photos caused quite a stir last week here in Scotland (Our National health Service left personal medical files behind in this place and I without meaning to, let it slip to the BBC). Made national news, which p*ssed a few urban explorers off (understandably), however saying that, the story has died down somewhat.

This is Law Hospital, Central Scotland. I love this type of photography!!!

And the news story:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/glasgow_and_west/7499749.stm

As I said, I did not intend for a story to break out, I submitted a pic to their weekly gallery and it all kicked off afterwards.
I am just off to read your rules to make sure I have broken no size limits / number of pics limits. Probably should have read first!!

Hope you enjoy,

Gary.

Great shots Gary. The deathly atmosphere of the building really comes through in the pictures. I particularly like your "shower room" picture.

keep up the good work.

Some good shots there Gary. I like this sort of exploration. I also saw the article on the news and none of it suprised me.

Some time ago, when I was working at the University of Manchester I was walling past the rubbish bins when I came open cardboard boxes spilling their contents on the ground. They turned out to be thousands of record cards of student applications with all their personal details. I called the relevant departments but it was amazing how difficult it was to interest them in clearing up this privacy nightmare.

Do I take the publicity has put an end to this photographic paradise?

Friday it was all over the news, Sunday I was back, and access was as easy as ever :)

Storm in a teacup, they clearly just don't care.

I have to agree, it's scarry. Don't know that I'd be wondering around in there. But glad that you did. Great series.
