Dupont Underground Continues by MikaAltskan
While most photographers tend to focus on the prettier aspects of DC such as the monuments, the cherry blossoms, or the wildlife, others like to explore the underbelly of our city with their cameras. Urban exploration, sometimes known as “urban spelunking” or “urban caving”, involves going to forgotten places that are relics from past eras. Many times it’s difficult (and illegal) to reach these hidden gems, but the reward is often worth it (unless you get arrested).
We Love DC does not condone trespassing, however we love to see the haunting images of decay that you discover in the darkness, whether they’re of the Dupont Underground, Forrest Haven, the Metro tunnels, or the Washington Coliseum. Just be sure you’ve had a recent tetanus shot before you shimmy down a rusty tunnel and bring backup in case you run into some C.H.U.D.
