Rust in peace, London.

I’ve called this one ‘Rust in peace’, it’s the interior of some catacombs in London. Ok they don’t usually allow photographs inside the catacombs but………. I found it completely fascinating. Note the guy top left has a bell?!


  1. Wow! Brilliant photo and totally fascinating!!!

  2. Thank you, I took it because I found it quite fascinating and hoped it wouldn’t spook people. The bell thing made me smile.

  3. That is a fascinating sight. I`ve always wanted to see what it looked like behind the marble panels.

  4. You can rely on me to climb over fences and poke my camera where it isn’t allowed! A ‘Keep Out’ notice is like a ‘Hello and welcome Jeane’ sign! I’m never disrespectful like climbing on graves or intruding on people’s private moments in cemeteries but if I can quietly take a shot of something interesting without disturbing the dead or living I do so!

  5. Funnily enough, I went on a guided tour of a London catacomb a few years back and saw similar rusty pieces and lots of black flowers in glass cases, together with cloth hanging off the coffins. There was a strict no photography rule, but managed to shoot three rolls of film. Strangely , it was as if I didn't exist and the guide and sixty other people ignored me. Some time, another member of the group produced a happy snap camera and got shouted at!
    Great site.
