Why do you always find chairs when exploring? Part 2

Im planning on finally emptying my hard drive of 2013's images and Ive just remembered that I created this post in December 2013 http://www.benchapmanphotos.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/why-do-you-always-find-chairs-when.html
How can I leave a part 1 out there and never follow it up with a part 2.

So its 9pm on a Saturday night, im sat round my Sister Amy's house and its time to get it done. Lets hope it not too rushed but im taking pictures so often at the moment that I want to share, I need to get these shots ticked off the list.

The site of this explore is in Coldham near March, Cambridgeshire it had so many different rooms to go in and out of, not to mention a bungalow next door to the left and 2 houses surrounded by overgrown gardens to the right.

The entrance was inviting.
 
The door was open too!
 
Inside the first room were a number of things to focus on.
 It would take a lot more than turning this handle now to turn the power on, all the copper wire has been taken.



 Shame I didn't find the gun.
 
This doesn't work very well.
 
 
As well as chairs all over this place there were also bikes scattered around.

 
 
I didn't follow these rules......what a rebel.



How can someone leave photos? How dare they?
 
This guy made me laugh!

Why the surprised face?
 


 
 Great light shining in here.

Mixed a few tunes while I as there, the place was banging!

 
My favourite subject and shots of the day were of a chair I found in a very distressed room, the place had been proper smashed up; holes in the wall and broken glass everywhere.
 
The light however on the chair really caught my eye. I wanted to capture the chair bathing in the light from the broken window but also the shadow and darkness surrounding it.
 
I could not decide which was my favourite edit, so here's both.
 

 
Ive already got my next post lined up, ive been getting creative with an old film lens and my old 450D.
 
Thanks for looking.
