So I have a question for readers: If you were on a rooftop on a moonlit night with a creepy streetscape all around, what would you do?
1. Relish it, what a night for mischief
2. Freak out, never know who’s lurking around the dumpsters
3. Call 911
4. What an opportunity, form a secret society to meet there
I go with answer 4. I’ve been totally into Urban Exploration recently — a kind of geochaching without the gizmos. This fellow does it in Great Britain as a kind of escapism, I think.
He’s also a darned good photographer, so I bet he sells his pictures after his trip to the dark side of abandoned buildings. Anyone ever try it? Think you could?

If you’ve ever broken into an abandoned building just for kicks, write and tell me about it. I need details!
