As promised/threatened, here are a buttload of pictures from the road trip [personal profile] the_axel and [personal profile] the_siobhan and I took to POW Camp 30 in Bowmanville. For reference, this is about an hour's drive from Toronto. It's a former school for delinquent boys that was converted into a POW camp during World War II. It's since fallen to ruin, squatters, and graffiti artists—which tbh makes it approximately 10,000x more awesome from the point-of-view of a photographer or aspiring author of post-apocalyptic fiction—despite being guarded by surveillance cameras and one intimidating as hell pre-recorded loudspeaker message.

There are No Trespassing signs all over the place, but let's be honest; if they wanted to keep people out, they'd put some barbed wire or guards around. We ran into two other people wandering around the premises who had the same idea we did.

Narrowing down which pictures to show you folks was brutal—I hope you appreciate that I got it down to around 20 from over 100. (Okay, so more because Photobucket has ceased to work for me and DW's image hosting is brutal, but also to spare your browsers.

Wow, these are amazing! <3 I love the third picture especially, it looks extra post-apocalyptic.

Those are some awesome pics.

I'd imagine that the terrifying loudspeaker message would enhance the post-apocalyptic feel.

Great photos. My favourites are the blue mushrooms and the light through the hole in the wood.

Cool pics! I feel like I've seen that in a film somewhere.
And... DW hosts images? I've just been using my LJ as my host for pics I post here!
