That's actually called a signal box/switchtower. A few signalmen/switchmen (depends where you live) work in there with these big levers to move switches and signals around the railway/railroad.
It would be pretty cool to explore that place.
I really like this HDR. Often people cram on the effects and it looks like something the camera barfed up. This looks pretty damn good. Colors are good, and details are amazing. I assume that you used a tripod? Awesome photo!
I have always been fasinated by how light changes they way we see abandoned structors.
Are all those doors open for you or do you actually ask permission from the owners?
What focal length is the lens you used for this? Asking because I got a 50mm prime for my Urbex photos, and it's way to cropped for interiors like this.
Very gruesome, quite the hangout if you ask me. Looks like the shift in silent hill where the movie delves into darkness. Great pic, I love the windows and center point.
There's a place like this near me. They built a modern one in 2008, but up until then we caught the Amtrak at a building from the 1890s. Last time I was in there it was in slightly better condition then this, about the same size, but it still had the old-fashioned radiators, rusty oval door knobs, and molding details that had about five layers of paint on it. Sadly, they probably tore the place down by now.
great that's the future of all people
Fucking Urbex ! Nice !
