"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."
This abandoned hotel in Denmark consists of three seperate buildings.
The oldest one was built in 1859 as a depot for a local trader. This building had a timber-framed annex. The actual hotel building was built in 1879. The storage house was used as such for about 50 years before it was sold to the hotel owner and added to the hotel enterprise.
A landing pier was built at the beach, which is only a few meters from the hotel, so that giests could reach the hotel with boats.
Since 2008, the hotel has been abandoned. In 2012, one of the buildings burned down to the ground.......(more)
This farm house belongs to an abandoned farm in Denmark. The three buildings (farmhouse, stables and work shop) are arranged in a classical rectangular shape right

The workshop has been filled with objects that hint at the farm being used as a café and as a small artisan's market - a combination fairly common in Denmark.
The farmhouse itself is a thatched-roof cottage. The condition suggests that renovation has begun some time ago but has been stopped due to lack of money.
Water damages are dissolving the newly installed drywalls and the polished parquet flooring has puddles....(more)
In urban exploration, if a spot carries the label "abandoned sanatorium", it's hard to say No if you're in the area, because, well, it's a sanatorium!
This was one of those spots. It was pretty clear that we couldn't expect much from this spot, but it was on the way, so we went there anyway.
It turned out that most of the buildings were walled shut, so we went for the main building - the only one that seemed accessible at first glance.
The sanatorium's buildings are right at the main road, so there was no parking. We made a left turn down a small path into the woods and found a small place that seemed alright for parking. It also gave us the opportunity to approach the buildings from the backside....(more)
