The Mortuary Again

Having enjoyed doing a bit of UrbEx again after such a long time, by visiting the local mortuary a couple of weeks ago, yesterday I decided to go again. For the photographs on this occasion, I used the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone, choosing a different lens and film combination for every picture. This is easily achieved by selecting the 'shake to randomise' button in the settings, which means all I have to do is shake my phone and the lens and film change. Saves having to keep making decisions! 

As per my usual style, I was going for a lot more of the smaller details as opposed to the bigger picture.

I felt oddly uncomfortable while I was there, far more than the previous visit. Found myself constantly looking over my shoulder, feeling as if I was being observed. This time I didn't venture into the darker parts of the building, and left quite quickly when the feeling just became too strong.

The door had been newly boarded up since my previous visit, and newly opened by somebody else, so they are obviously keeping an eye on the place.

This initially gave me a horrible shock when I first glimpsed it, I thought it looked like a hideously deformed skeletal foot - shows where my mind was going at the time.

Gerrards Cross Common

Today was the committee meeting of the Visual Art Group, of which I am Secretary. Left home at 9:30 as I wasn't sure what the traffic would be like (you never know with the M25!), duly arrived one whole hour early at 10 o'clock. It was a nice day, so I had a short walk on the common, naturally took a few snaps along the way. Enjoyed all those lovely natural textures, details and colours.
