Love Urbex and Haikyo
LaFonte: Maybe someone knows, why the buildings looks like demolishd and everything is broken up - is it by weather or was there a vandalism?
Almost certainly the weather. The island experiences numerous typhoons and constant exposure to the harsh, salty sea air. A year or two ago the brand new walkway for visitors was damaged by a storm, so it's no wonder the old reinforced concrete buildings are bare skeletons of what they once were.
Ulfric M Douglas: Hey You iz now famous Gakuranman!(Hope you make some dosh from this)
Not from this post on Dpreview, but like most of us, I'm always interested in licensing my photography :).
Ron Poelman: Another ad,really, DPR ???
I have no idea what Dpreview's arrangement is regarding profiting from timely posts, but for reference Richard Butler contacted me to ask permission to link to my website and photos.
AbrasiveReducer: Great photo op. I just wish they would referain from "staging" things, like the chair or the telephone perfectly positioned next to the TV, as if these were natural occurances.
As far as I am aware, the television set has been resting there for a long, long time. The telephone next to it is also found in pictures from at least 4 years ago in photos taken by a Japanese photographer.
Great writeup! I learnt a thing or two myself, especially about video shooting :).
Fantastic!! May I ask where/how you photographed this wonderful little guy?
