In most of the urban explorations I have done, the experience is generally quiet, calm, and with a minimal amount of stress. This photo was taken under conditions exactly opposite to that. After spending most morning dodging security patrols my group found ourselves in this jet propulsion test chamber shortly after the said patrol rounded up a few explorers. At this point, highly on edge, being able to focus on creating the photograph I wanted was quite a challenge.As on you can see by some of my gear being visible in the frame, I was only partially successful! While not a great photo in and of itself, the personal story that goes along with it for me will make it a lifelong memory.
