 Today I would like to let you know about a blog that I enjoy checking in on.  It is Walking Turcot Yards by Neath.  Neath visits and comments on my blog regularly and recently gave me some publicity on his blog so I wanted to return the favor.  This is a very interesting blog focused on urban exploration, especially in Turcot Yards in Montreal, Canada.  Below is a description of the blog from Neath’s “about” page:

I am a Montreal based photographer/artist.

Walking Turcot Yards is a living changing document that really started when in the early 1990’s I began looking for a new project by just riding a bicycle along the Lachine Canal and seeing where that took me.

At that time I began to pay attention to grafitti and its appearance around the city, particularly in abandoned factories.

So that journey led me to the Turcot Yards, a vast incredible “abandoned” space in the south west of Montreal.

What happens now? I am not sure, but it is getting exciting for me. Somehow, a lot of things are beginning to make sense and I look forward to each day of this process with just a little more wonder about everything.

Be sure to check it out.
