Tour Report: Farmhouse R.

On the way to our next location, my friend Nordgriller Urbex and I passed this abandoned farmhouse. It was that typical moment where one looks at the other and says "Did you see that, too?", and you start looking for a place to turn the car around.
We parked the car on the field next to the house and started looking around. There are buildings that look like they're being used, but the farmhouse was definitely abandoned, so we went in to check it out.
It wasn't really spectacular. Mostly empty rooms and no furniture or tools of any kind left. But what made this location worthwile was the fantastic light that the winter sun cast into some of the rooms.
So we did get some nice shots before hitting the road again. It was already early afternoon, so we had to make haste to get to the next spot to have enough daylight left...

Tour Report: Ammunition Depot "Brown Star"

It was back in late November of 2016. I had just bought my new camera and got a text from my good friend Nordgriller Urbex, who asked me if I was up for a short tour the next day.
Of course I was!
I had to get up early the next morning so we'd have enough sunlight for a few spots. Getting up, however, was a difficult task that morning. My wife and I had gotten a little drunk together with a friend from my work and it had gotten a bit too late.
A hot shower and the cold air once I got outside helped to become sober - and it was a beautiful sunny winter day.
We drove East through a snowy landscape until we got to our first location. It was an old ammunitions depot that had originally been built by the Wehrmacht and was used by either the East German or the Soviet army after World War II.
The road was blocked, so we parked the car and walked the rest of the way. There were only a few ammo bunkers, nothing spectacular, so we just did a short walkthrough around the place, took a few photos and drove off to the next spot.
