Today I show you some interesting photos with an abandoned structure again. I found this building in 2015 in the outskirts of our city. Ironically I found that area by accident. I hiked through the nature reserve Schellbruch and at some point I wanted to go home. I knew the way back makes you turn left and right several times, a little bit like a labyrinth and I thought there must be a faster way. So, I looked at the river and it goes straight to the city, like the crows fly. That should be faster, huh?
I saw a small path, pretty overgrown and took that route along the river. I felt a bit like Indiana Jones, because what looked like an overgrown path was actually a small and dense German jungle (lol), as I noticed a mile later. I pushed my path through the thicket, sometimes even backwards, to minimize the risk of getting hurt by thorns and stinging nettles. When I had the thicket behind me, I found myself standing on an old industrial site. I noticed the abandoned structure and was pretty happy because of course I had my camera with me.
And I totally like abandoned stuff! I shot several photos, because they fit very well into my abandoned photography category on my blog. After that I wanted to go home, but there was still one hurdle. The property was surrounded by big fences with barbs, even near the river there were small barricades and obstacles row in row.
That’s where I realized I might need to go all the way back through the thicket. But checking all fences I found a part with a small pit in the ground, maybe a dog dug a hole days ago. Let’s do it like in the military I thought but my camera bag was a problem. So, I moved the bag and my jacked through the hole first, and then I crawled through it as well. And then I hiked the remaining miles home and my clothes were sandy and people probably wondered why, but the whole experience was pretty funny, how could they know! And absolutely worth it!
