As cool as epic, expansive shots of entire rooms one may find while on an urbex trip are, it’s the little details that can really show the character and history of a place. This old shelf was clearly used to store keys on all those carefully bent nails. I wonder what the ‘876852’ key used to open…feel free to tell me your idea of what it may have been for 🙂

I’ve found something like this before too – I love all these little details, and as you write, they can say a lot about a place.

Key ‘876852’ used to open the secret room that stored all the disco gear. You see, back in the day the when all the bosses left for the day, the employees would break out the disco gear and rock all night long. It made for a more enjoyable night shift. Sadly, disco was frowned upon, so a secret code was derived so nobody would know this dirty little secret.

I like the shadows and light across this…excellent stuff. Amazing all the shots you got from that place.

Key ’876852? was used to unlock the ninjas they had hiding in a back room.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it….

Stellar use of the shadows. It really accentuates the name plates for the keys. Totally love this shot.

Cool shot man…at least we know what “MENS-RM” was used for 🙂

This is awesome Heath! I love the details! Pretty sure key ’876852? is the key to the hearts of the NFL owners and players to give a season next year.

I dig your lines in this image – I often wouldn’t know how to place a shape like that, the whole thing just really works for me. Awesome!

God, I love this shot! Way to bring a serious dose of intrigue to the table here today Heath!!

876852 was the number that the employers had to push every hour to stop something bad from happening. The key had to be inserted into the control panel first. One day they didn’t push the buttons on the hour…and that’s why nobody is around there any more! Nice shot 🙂

Heath, great framing man! Love your processing as always!
