    Agreed.

    Loved that book. Probably a bit embellished in parts, but the main points are very true.

    Another interesting web site is the web urbanist. Part of their series is of abandoned structures around the world

    It's not the size of your lens.
    It's how you use it

    Yeah... Or wet hacking.. The "bumbling guard" is the norm, not the exception I'm afraid.. When someone offers penetration testing on a system, if they don't take the soft targets into account then they're not doing their job properly.. About half the people I ring up are willing to give me their password.. This includes the accountants.. And some of our remote offices have unencrypted Excel spreadsheets with every password sitting there on their network.

    Like I said.. the concepts used to gain entry for this draw a lot of parallels to those used by hackers.. Which used to be, I guess, taggers and graffiti artists, they are now much more akin to the copper thieves.
    Smile.. Don't make me press this shutter release twice!
    A photo needs to start and finish in your imagination, if it passes through your camera in between, that's cool, if it doesn't, that's cool also.

    What an interesting subject to focus on! I love looking at pictures of the past and wondering what happened when people were there and why they left. And most new buildings are nowhere near as interesting to look at as those from 50+ years ago.
