theviewfromthenorth.org is ten years old!

19th June 2017
Some time in May 2007, I cobbled together the first iteration of this website. Intended as a portfolio of my better work, it was an uneasy mix of urbex, railway photography and a bit of street/urban photography. As I specialised more in urbex, I progressively dropped the street and railway stuff, and dedicated it to my urbex and industrial landscapes.

What you see today, after several million page views and numerous iterations is a vastly different website although some of the photos are the same as back in May 2007 (albeit bigger and reprocessed.

The web archive project took its first snapshot of the site in July 2007, and although it's not recorded the homepage layout very well, it does give you a flavour of what the website was like in the early days.
