Sleepy City

While the city sleeps we're playing in the old tunnels, rancid sewers, subways, bridges and abandoned places of our environment. Welcome to sleepycity, the city is our playground.

» 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?
