"I'd like to think the best bunker buster is a
diplomat." - Photo by Jan Bommes
"This one was a lucky shot. I was on a tour of some command post bunkers of the East German People's Army (NVA). While finishing up and starting to pack our stuff, I walked around in one of the shelters and got between my friend and the light that came from the entrance. He immediately suggested we take a photo because of the stark contrast the scene was offering.
Because of the contrast, I decided to give the photo a black and white processing. I rarely do that, but in this case, it came out nicely."

Since 2008, the hotel has been abandoned. In 2012, one of the buildings burned down to the ground.......(more)
It was already gettng dark on the first day of our tour through East Germany together with Nordgriller Urbex, so we only had time for one more short stop. It was
February after all, and the daylight was fading fast.
So we stopped along the highway when we saw the remains of an old Soviet airfield. It was the classic view - old buildings and a solar field on the former tarmac. Only in this case, there were windmills being built between the buildings.
It seemed like this former airfield didn't have much time left. We tried a few possible entries (less to find a hidden way in, but rather to find a good place to park) until we found a good spot. Since it was getting dark.....(more)
