Actually it was taken in Basildon.. My dream photography holiday would be to go to Chernobyl/Pypriat in the Ukraine and visit the ruined villages and ghost towns. One day it will happen. Thankfully I have already had kids so no chance of fathering any mutants in the future. A bit of radiation poisoning is character building anyway.

undoubtedly one of my favorites, I think this appears as a wonderful (gas station) commercial architectural remnant.

Awesome shot. I don't like the black on top and bottom, but that's just personal preference. Love the angle and the sky.

Very dramatic. I like the clouds and the overall lighting. The awning jutting out really give it depth. Nice job.
