In the photo, you see an ammunition depot. I shot the photo in a forest in Heidekamp, outside of Lübeck but very close to Reinfeld. The bunker is one of twelve ammunition depots in our area that were used by the German federal government until the end of the cold war. The ammunition was stored to be able to blow up bridges of strategic value, to prevent enemy troops to advance if it would have come to an invasion. Today, the bunker has a peaceful use case. The Naturschutzbund Deutschland (NABU), a nature conservation association developed it into a quarter … Continue reading Cold War Ammunition Depot
Here is another photo that is already 5 years old. I like abandoned places or lost places but we don’t have too many of those places in our city, which is why I don’t take these photos regularly. The building I photographed looked quite spooky and I am glad that I took photos of it because they demolished the building one or two years ago. But up to this day they didn’t build something new there, it’s now basically an empty lot. There is another photo of this building on my blog. Continue reading Spooky Abandoned Place
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 … Continue reading I Got Lost
I thought I show you a photo again. The photo above was shot in 2015. I found that abandoned structure in Lübeck and shot several pictures from different sides.

This is the fun part about photography as well, you can take these pictures and you as a photographer and the photos become witness of the past. Since I didn’t like how I framed the image (I was way too close), I edited on a way that it looks more … Continue reading Abandoned Place
To my surprise, and if I remember right, a reader of my blog told me once that garden areas are not common in his country. So, when I talk about garden areas in Germany, they are very common here and I don’t talk about gardens in front of any houses. What I am talking about are large areas where you find several hundred plots that citizens can rent. The thing is, some people live in apartment complex, others live in an apartment tower, which means they don’t have a garden in front of their home. And that is where the … Continue reading Abandoned Garden Shed
Maybe It’s A Boat, Maybe It’s A Car, Maybe It’s Both. Nobody Knows. I had to laugh when I saw this during my hike. I wonder if the boat really swims or if it’s just supposed to be art. What do you think? Continue reading Maybe It’s A Boat, Maybe It’s A Car, Maybe It’s Both. Nobody Knows.
