American Astronaut

Abandoned Amusement Park

Hey! Second time posting here.

Last July-August I went to Berlin, Germany to visit some friends.

For years I've always wanted to check out this abandoned amusement park that lies pretty much right in the city.

Luckily for me one of my friends had just been around the place and knew exactly where to go so one beautiful summer day we went there to take some photos.

We didn't really spend that much time inside when we managed to get in though, my friends started to get nervous and wanted to bail before being caught by security.

So I didn't get the most varied photos but I decided to post a couple of them anyway.

Enjoy!

Briefly Off Topic

Sorry to take the spot light briefly off the abandoned buildings.

Has anyone here been getting random friend-adds from all Russian journals? I've had several.  None of them answer my request to know why I've been added.  I've also noticed that, until I hid my list of friends, the same 3 or 4 people on my friends list were also added (one of which hasn't used her journal since 2007).   

I'm not sure if this is the community they are getting me from but suspect that might be the case, I'd noticed someone else requested to be unfriended and was a member of this comm.   While I don't mind getting to know new people, I do mind random friending if I can't understand their entries.  I'm concerned that they are mass-adding people, hoping to be added back so they can get email addresses for spam.  

Anyone else notice this happening??

(Back to the buildings.  Sorry, don't have any shots to share right now)

EDIT, thanks <lj user="nympholept">: They are bots, and Livejournal Abuse are currently investigating and suspending them.

It's very important that you do not friend them, and you should report them to Livejournal Abuse.  While  innocent people do friend  you from time to time, these seem to be a different kettle of fish.  It isn't known if they are collecting personal info from those who naively friend back without checking, if they are just trying to gather as many friends as they can for the heck of it or if they have encoded malware or spyware in their entries/links/etc.

Please spread the word to anyone else who may have been added.

Maine!

Heeey everyone.
I looove this community. It's one of my favorites. Sadly, I have never contributed to it...but that's because I don't know where to look!
This seems to be a community that stretches globally, but I am still hoping that out of the millions of places to find a site...there might be one in Maine?
Seems I'm just not looking in the right place?
I'm located in the Portland area.
U.S.
Anyone?
Thanks! Keep doing what you do.
*Facepalm.*
I just remembered I did contribute here in July. Oh. Now I'm proud. ^_^
But that was in Maryland! XD
Byebye lovelies!
