Those are the best of the 1200 photos I took during an unforgettable 3-week trip in Bulgaria in May 2004, with my friend Susie. Some photos have been digitally converted to black-and-white.
We found the old spray plane parked on an abandonned military air field north of Plovdiv.
For those tempted to explore the huge abandonned chimical factory (Agrobiochim) near the main road east of Stara Zagora, be careful, the site is patrolled by armed security guards. If you meet our friend Vasil (the gard who arrested us for trespassing), say hello to him!
If you are also interested by urban exploration, i.e. exploring disused buildings and factories, abandoned tunnels, etc, check out www.urban-resources.net, an excellent database of photography books and other resources on this subject.
Equipment used: Sony DSC F828 (8 Mega-pixel) with 4GB Microdrive.
