I met up with Richard after work on Friday after work prior to our exploration on Saturday and we decided to pay a visit to one of the plentiful and interesting little bars near his house. We walked in and had to suppress our laughter as we saw many of the regulars lined up in chairs playing fruit machines as though their lives depended on it, total concentration written on all their faces. In a bar!

So it was back into the car and on to our destination to revisit the plastics factory that I'd explored last weekend with Jeff. I had spare batteries this time so no worries about running out of power. I could do as many long exposures as I liked. Out of interest I had remembered the placement of a couple of objects on site and was curious to see if they had been moved, an indication of other visitors. When we arrived, they had both disappeared and further damage had been wrought. I was glad we were here again to document the place. I took many photos on this trip but many I can't show as they would reveal the name of the location.
And then we came to the main reason why I had wanted to return to this place, this fantastic art piece of a door. The room is almost in complete darkness and it would have been so easy to walk past and not notice it, but when my flashlight cast an inadvertent beam across its front, vibrant colors flashed like jewels. Close inspection of this art piece revealed that someone had stuck hundreds of small colored glass chunks and pebbles to a large translucent textured pane of plastic, and this was done on both sides of the door. We also noticed that near the handle was a space for a battery or some source of power making us realize that this door actually lit up.
A history of him is here.
