Former russian army base – Dresden, Germany – in June 2006


In the early ninetees, when the Russians went back home,

they left behind a lot of army strongholds in the east part

of germany. Areas were nothing happend since then.

One in particular is located very close to my family´s garden

in Dresden. I remember, when I was a little boy, me and my

friends were really curious and excited what´s behind the walls.

We peeked trough the holes or climbed the walls to see what´s

inside. However …

More than ten years left since I was inside the area. Not much

reminds of the old times, but … this is how it looks today:

Glass Plant. More pics and a funny story in my journal.

This is what the factory produced. The place was just a foundry to produce these balls. No other evidence of manufacturing any other product except these balls.

Check out my journal for more fine pics and the embarrassing story.

National Geographic--Chernobyl

I have been a member of this community since soon after it began, but have not contributed any photos, as I do not have a functioning camera at current. Recently I ran across an article in National Geographic about the abandoned towns near Chernobyl, and thought that others might perhaps appreciate the pictures as much as I do. These are not pictures taken by me, and I take no credit for them, except for perhaps finding them, hosting them, and posting them here. These pictures appeared in the April 2006 National Geographic pp. 32-53. Checkout the website for more information, and a really cool inteactive feature.

Chernobyl exploded before dawn on April 26, 1986 in the worst nuclear accident the world has ever seen. Pictures of the abandoned city are from the nearby town of Pripyat, located two miles from the reactor. Pripyat will likely remain abandoned for decades to come, as the radioactive remnants of reactor four continue to smoulder under it's makeshift cover. Read more...Collapse )

I spent a little time in San Francisco recently. My husband took me up to the abandoned military batteries (lookout points that once housed really freakin' big guns) in the Marin Headlands. I'm pretty happy with the shots I got.
