urbexing in turnhout

Last Saturday, Bram Platel and I went to Turnhout (Belgium) to shoot some pictures of buildings in decay. Soon it appeared we were not the only ones. This so-called “urbex” picture shooting seems to be quite popular.

ghost town doel (belgium)

Last weekend I went to ghost town Doel in Belgium with Bram Platel. The harbours will expand, and therefore a dock is planned at the very location of Doel. Doel is threatened with demolition, and consequently many people that lived in Doel sold their house to the government. Others, a minority do not accept this fate of Doel so readily, and fight the decisions in court.

As a consequence of many people leaving Doel, the small town has turned into a ghost town for the most part. Interesting enough to drive for an hour and shoot some pictures.
