    Inside the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, it's very dark. So I took a picture of the lamp.

    Linky to the larger version because it looks slightly less like a blob of white in a sea of black when it's bigger.

    I wanted to take every single light fixture home with me. They're so ridiculously deco it's painful.

    This is my most popular photo on Flickr. It is the latest in a very long line of "my most popular photo on Flickr" photos that have left me scratching my head and thinking, "Them people is nuts!"

    I met the Steampunk guy at Mythic Faire in Baltimore a few months back. He's a very cool guy; engaging and friendly.

    Back from a delightful trip to Barstow, Joshua Tree, and the Salton Sea. I feel refreshed, dammit.

    Fort Brockhurst 4

    Fort Brockhurst, Gosport UK. Part of the Victorian defensive ring around Portsmouth dockyard, this one was designed to guard against attack from the west. Fascinating place - the army left it in the middle of the last century and it's been cleared and tidied up since then, but looking a bit faded.

    @Coop, hey man thats my house in the background! The house of Evil Spirits is my throne room. Bombay Beac is fascinating, the only place I have enver been where the flight and abandonment is ongoing and yet folks hang on there living side by side with derelict houses. I blasted Godspeed! You Black Emperor the whole way down Box Canyon road en route to The Salton Sea to put me in the proper frame of apocalyptic mind. I want to go back there and explore some more but I have to wait for the ennui from this trip there to dissipate.

    Now all we need is for Ms. Florence Chan to drop in Urbex dilapidation and this thread is off to a good start!

    Salton Sea is a fascinating place - a Tom Waits song (album, maybe) come to life.

    The Salton Sea is indeed fascinating but boobies add a certain je ne sais quoi.

    I almost forgot to flip the bird to Mars


    Seriously, Fuck You, Mars.

    If spiders the size of your hand makes you crap your pants, do not click this link to the photo I decided to not embed here out of kindness even though I wanted to share the image.

    That's right, summer, and the chance for some sunsets, clouds and planes.



    And more start at Set
