These were all taken with the 20mm, and mostly with the Olympus wide angle adapter. Never really done anything like this before, but it was fun. Having light kit is handy when climbing walls and dodging security guards :)

Thanks folks - the building was an mental asylum - it's part of a huge complex, some of it is still in use as a secure unit!

Yeah, where do you live, part of me wants to come and take photos, another part is telling me "stay away" ;)

Love the pics though, wish I knew where some cool old buildings like that were around here.

Thanks for the comments everyone :)

Basically we had in the UK built a lot of these big Victorian institutions for the mentally ill - now the emphasis is on 'care in the community' apart from the most severe cases, so there are a lot of abandonded facilities.

Brilliant set!

Q: What's the "olympus wide angle adapter?"
It's an old Olympus wide angle convertor that screws on (with the right step ring) - I think it's a 49mm thread size. I was using it on the 20mm pancake but you can also stick it on the 14-45 to go very wide. It seems to be a lot better quality than a lot of those things on ebay, and cost about £10. There is a thread about it on here somewhere I think, that's where I found out about it.

It's not going to be as good as a proper wide angle lens but it's a very good cheap alternative.
