Get Low

Abandoned buildings, bridges, rooftops; are all great places to explore and photograph, but in my opinion the most difficult to both access and shoot are the spaces beneath the city. Everyone knows that there are tunnels below the streets, but most people will never see these tunnels with their own eyes. 

This particular system of tunnels is largely fed by a creek that once ran through the city uncovered. As the city grew sections of the creek were covered a little bit at a time, until eventually almost the entire creek was underground. Feeding into this underground river are smaller tunnels that gather rain water from the streets and parking lots above. Since different sections of the tunnel were built at different times the construction changes from brick to stone to concrete. The city infrastructure is fascinating.
