For now LJ cuts are requested after the lead image or if any large images / text is included. Dont ask anyone to cut their photos / text, and use your own judgement when posting. We are all here to enjoy the photographs, stories and history of what once existed or is fading away here.
Disabling comments is not allowed and will result in your post getting deleted.
If they apply, please use these tags to identify the nature of the entry, use location tags as memory tags as well. Please do not directly identify the address of a location in a post unless that place has restricted access. This is to dissuade vandalism and illegal use of the property. A general location (west of Lancaster or near Riverside) is fine.
General rules of exploring:
Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures.
The management does not encourage, condone or recommend breaking and entering.
Don't do anything dumb, different or dangerous than you normally do in life.
