» Oooh, That (Indescribable) Smell - Entropic Memes

When people find out I like to participate in urban exploration, they’re usually full of questions - some of them good and pertinent, some of them less so. Isn’t it dangerous? Isn’t it illegal? Isn’t it scary?

The railway bridge by Grand Sluice is the most northerly of Boston's bridges. I've often wondered how far I'd have to follow the Witham before reaching another. One day I'm planning to walk along the river to find out!

The Fleet – London’s Underground River ~ Kuriositas

The Fleet – London’s Underground River ~ Kuriositas | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

The story of the Fleet is one of almost inevitable but inexorable decline. Over the period of just a few hundred years it went from a river to a brook. From there, despite a brief renaissance as a canal it became a ditch and ultimately was consigned to the depths as a drain. Human intervention has consigned the river to its labyrinthine underground tomb. Yet take a visit to the ponds of Hampstead and you can still see it, at its source, perhaps something akin to how it looked before we arrived.

Beautiful Underground Photography

Beautiful Underground Photography | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

Some people are afraid of being underground, but thankfully some photographers don't fit those shoes, and because of that, we are delivered some great underground photography. Also, I tend to suspect that hipsters love it.
These are some amazing examples of underground photography, man-made or not. Mostly tunnels, but also some natural scenarios, pretty awesome. These were taken by some great photographers, which will love if you paying them a visit
