The irony is hard to overlook. There are few, if any, cities on earth where the show of wealth and consumption is so shamelessly on display, and yet hidden beneath the surface of Las Vegas, another world exists. Written by Karl Fabricius. Photos by Austin Hargrave.
The Blue Ghost Tunnel, also known at one time as The Merritton Tunnel, The Great Western Railway Tunnel and The Grand Trunk Railway Tunnel, was constructed in the 1870's under the 3rd Welland Canal in St. Catharines, Ontario, and officially opened in April 1882.
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
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.
