Steel mill X

Photographed late summer 2002
The steel mill X was described to me as huge and abandoned. Perfect ingredients.
True, but that wasn't the whole story. Part of this huge steel producing monster is in the process of being destroyed while the rest is a working factory. Therefore whole the place is guarded and it isn't simple to nose about unnoticed.
Entering through a hole in the fence opposite
the working factory is straightforward.
Now comes the hard part : the workshops are separated from the blast furnaces by approximately one kilometer of open wasteland. It's a game of chance whether or not you stay unnoticed.
Run straight across like a rabbit ?
I chose the last option but I doubt if my army boots, stained clothes and photo equipment would have convinced anyone ...
if you stayed unnoticed
