2016 photographs (last week).
It is, right now, too hot to sleep and too late to do something. Let me talk about this two young women I made urbex with.
I was coming in this part of the city with a renting bike, it was a warm day. Going up a hill with a cycle is not really a common thing for me. Just before going down, I look at my maps app, and two young woman came with a paper plan, like she was tourists.
I begun to go down by a road and saw a little way in wiring of this abandoned castle.
I thought that it was stupid to go down without visiting this site.
I tried to park my bike, but it was damaged. After 5 minutes of efforts, I parked it.
I was not really serene because of the police patrol car which came 2 times. Then I decided to go talked with this 2 young woman :
- What are you doing ? You look as strange as me...
- Will you go in ?
- Yes but we don't know how to do !
- I see a little way, will you come ?
This is an old defensive building in this city. We go in.
I heard many time about this building but I never came. I heard about some undergrounds parts.
We tried during many times to find them.
This area is strange because there is some ruins, some part are squatted by some people, there is a strange mood. We should be careful about the police-patrol. Then we search for.
This two women came here for their family for holidays. We talked about what we really do in our respective life.
" I am afraid to fall " said the woman when I ask her to take a photograph of her in front of the void.
Sometimes we talked about this situation which was unusual, doing urban which strangers. We laughed about who will kill others. I was thinking I will be the victims and they thought the contrary.
The best moment was when we find a part of the underground, it was a part which go down in the ground. It was not engaging to go in in the complet darkness...
They ask me if I wanted to go first, then I begun to do this.
- I can't see the end
- [there is no rope]
- What ?
- [there is no rope]
- Why are you talking about a rope ?
- It is not us, said the young women
- Who is talking to me ?
- [It is us]
This was the time "us" decided to light their cellphones. Us had two different voices and one light of cellphone.
They said that there is an easy way to go in by the "big room".
We tried to find this big room, laughing often about my sentence : " Who is talking to me ? ", we explore all the area. " I think that the first time they came, they did not know about this room " said I, " Of course " answered the young women.
After some minutes, maybe one hour, we find this "big room".
We went in the big underground and I took the shoulder of Zola, one of the young women. I did not know what I love in this photograph, but I will remember her beautiful shoulder in the darkness when we walk in some dirty water.
It is not her real name, but she like to be called like that, and I like it too !
