As a resident of the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois (Wauconda, Crystal Lake, Palatine, McHenry, Elgin), I explore the various abandoned structures and buildings around the state. I usually call it urbex, but I think that the word that best suits my kind of exploration is, at most times, Rurex :) I am not a professional photographer by any means and, to me, photography is more of a hobby, but I love the idea of sharing my experiences to others that enjoy the same kinds of adventures! I hope that my photos intrigue you and I would always like your feedback on them. If you are someone that posts urbex photos, then follow my photostream and I will check out your work and most likely follow you back :) Thanks for checking out my photostream! :)
