One of the fascinating parts of Urbex for me is the textures I can capture.

An old German proverb used to say "Der Liebe Gott steckt im detail" which translates in "God is in the details", later changed to "The devil is in the detail" by Ludwig Mins Van de Rohe. I see both in urbex. I see the God of creation of all these details: in the steal of the cars, in the sand used for the broken bricks, in the minerals mixed to bring to life colours and paints...and I see the Devil, in the weathering of the stones, the rusting of the metals, in the moulding of the wood, in the decay of paint.  Life and Death. Before and After. They merge in the beauty of a detail.
