Some folks like a spa day. Some like a nice cold beer (I actually like that as well), but URBEX, short for urban exploration, is my preferred method of relaxation. Something about going into a bando or rooftop is a huge rush. Finding something new that no one else has seen before is incredibly addictive. I’m sure that’s exactly how the explorers from the past felt. They just never found the random homeless person or walked into a room with a few dogs that see you as lunch.
I do it for “The Shot” mostly. All photogs know what that is. We are all trying to get that one dope shot so that Insta-fame goes up! Getting featured by a big IG account is addictive and also dangerous. Some push the limits for the shot and have lost their lives. So, always be safe and cautious. I tend to travel alone, but I also prefer to go with friends as well. Why? Who else is gonna take that dope ass shot of you?
I’m not condoning breaking into places and vandalizing anything. I believe in being respectful and leaving places intact for other explorers. Keep in mind that going into some places is illegal and comes with a nice trespassing charge. Explore at your own risk. Stay safe and don’t forget your tripod!
