These photographs were taken on a lime kiln site in Germany.
In a previous post I reported about an old abandoned paper mill in Germany. This factory was the most impressive object I have ever visited, so we started another attempt to get some good shots there.
The Luxemburg-trip was very successful. After le petit Café we started over to an abandoned iron ore production site. One of the remaining buildings of that site was some kind of huge silo hall.
Last weekend we did a short trip to Luxemburg and Belgium. The first location of that two-day photo trip was a little old Café in Luxemburg. It was abandoned a couple of decades ago and not only had a small banquet hall but also a nine-pin bowling alley and some old moldy guest rooms in the first floor.
A few of my photos have been published on “Deutsche Welle Farsi”. You can take a look following this link.
Buildings are constructed by humans and intended to last for a very long time. If you think about a force that may destroy buildings around you, you may think about explosives or devastating weapons.
When you walk through a decaying piece of industrial brownfield, you get to know a different type of destructive force: mother nature.
When a building is constructed, nature loses some area wich is now occupied by human beings. When those buildings are abandoned and left-behind, nature slowly takes back the area step by step.
Some months ago I visited a former coking plant. These of the pictures try to show the the incredible atmosphere
This coking plant and the surrounding area looked like a cathedral which was bombed in World War III. Those two huge chimneys of the former coking plant have been blown down to secure this brownfield area but they were expected to fall down to the grassland and not into the building. On the picture above you can see the damage of the building due to that fallen chimney.
Last November we visited an abandoned museum. It was about military technology and a lot of exhibits were just standing on an acre or a yard like the soviet-designed medium twin-turbine Transport helicopter Ми-8 (Mil Mi-8, see above).
Lots of tanks (mainly German Bundeswehr or Former Warsaw Pact army), police trucks, a few combat aircrafts, military helicopters as well as civilian helicopters are just standing there under the open sky and are fully exposed to wind and weather. The pictures show, what all the corrosion made to those former high tech military products.
This old bathhouse was built in 1929. It consisted of two pools originally intended to have separate pools for men and women. After years passed by, one pool was covered with hardwood floor and it was used as a gymnasium for the school next to the building. The floor at some point was demolished as there were multiple fire incidents probably due to some vandals.
