Destroying the Silence by wreck-photography Destroying the Silence by wreck-photography
Its been nearly a year since I have been Urbexing. We had a bit of a nightmare trying to get into two other locations and ended up here. Mayfield school.

This is the first time i have taken my Canon 550d out urbexing and it is so loud. Every shutter release sounds like gunfire in the huge rooms, echoing down corridors and into the ears of anybody that maybe walking past.

We didnt stay for long here as we couldnt quite relax but this shot alone was worth the trip.

HDR panoramic.

A huge thanks to Tom for coming. Always a pleasure mate :)

Is this in Mayfield, East Sussex? Or is it somewhere else and the name is a coincidence?

Hang on. Do you mean Mayfield Lane in Wadhurst?
TN5 6JE area? Cos there is an old abandoned college there. It was called 'Bellerbys' I live literally next to it. x

I went in about year ago. Not into the main building. I just went into the science block and photography area. A couple of days later there were security there. Still are now. How did you get in? x

sneaked in around the back. Was really dodgy though. A guy with a dog in a van where out front the entire time. We could only get into the main building, the rest was really heavily boarded up.

I was wondering, is the Cannon 550d a (digital or film) Just curious, I have the Cannon EOS Rebel and I have the sound shut-off switch. (I hate seeing someone in distress over a little sound heeh.

wreck-photography Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2011
Haha the 550d is a digi. The noise comes from the mirror slapping up and down, unfortunatly there is nothing you can do about it. I wouldnt mind but i expect security would :)

hehe, security would mind... only if it is messing with their dohnuts and coffee. (Shhhh....)

None the less, the risk is worth it when you get great shots like that. Keep your head down and good luck ;-)
