    It's somewhat difficult to get used to seeing your own words splashed all over a major media outlet. Somehow it never seems to come out the way I intend but maybe that's down to my own pickiness.

    This article ended up on the desks of many people I know, Including people who I worked with for my day job at the time.

    Driving around in his work as a service technician, Brett Patman became captivated by the sight of so many abandoned buildings around Sydney and Melbourne.

    Once, they played a huge role in people’s lives, as factories, power stations, hospitals, abattoirs, brickworks … every kind of working and living environment. But now they’ve been deserted, left to be reclaimed by nature or waiting patiently for a fresh lease of life, and yet somehow quite beautiful in their desolation.
