MBI Beton, 2014 (warning large serie)

August 2014 we visited MBI Beton, a legit visit and one of our first urbex trips. This serie has been on my hard drive for a long time now. I decided to share the full serie on my blog. Flickr or Facebook don’t seem appropriate for this size serie.
This series is completely shot with my Nikon D90 + 35mm 1.8 DX. One of the last times i shot such a big serie with it. I also owned my Olympus E-M10 those days but shot with both camera’s and did an in camera black and white serie with the D90 35mm combo. All that is edited is some straightening on the ooc jpeg files and the border.
Why publish it? Well i have personally always liked this serie a lot, not really an explanation for it but today i needed to share it.
The D90 and 35mm are history, both sold to invest in new gear.. Also Urbex has become my main shooting style now. This blog was neglected for a long time so now time to use it again.
The serie is shown randomly.

Berlin. Day 6.

What happened to day 5? Well not much interesting stuff to post and besides it were the reports of yet another fire at BLUB i decided to pick up posting to my blog again.

What is in this post, BLUB. Berlin Luft und Badeparadies. What a location, thrashed but still so very cool to explore. Crowded to, during our visit we saw enough other photographers but also graffiti artist and young Berliners climbing the roof. The end is near for BLUB, should be demolished for new houses and stuff.

I will update my blog more next days, have lot’s of series to share. Thank’s for your visit!

Berlin. Day two, stop two.

After the Freibad Lichtenberg we decided to use the public transport and find a well known urbex location. According to a known source ‘abandoned Berlin’ the front gate should be open. After some time in public transport we arrived in the part of Berlin where this urbex location is situated. But….front gate, well all gates closed. So we walk around and eventually saw people inside the complex. So we walked back to the street side and asked our self how did people get in. Than some young people waved through the fence and walked on and disappeared from the street. A quick look around the corner and we saw that the were on the location’s ground. So i asked them how they did it. The answer was as simple as it could be. Hop over the fence. So we did which was funny because it was right along a busy street and cars were waiting for the traffic lights. But no one seems to care. The location itself was amazing.

Säuglings-Kinderkrankenhaus Weißensee also known as: Zombie Hospital.

We had a great time there and met 2 photographers from, if i understood them correct from Argentina. This location is still up, lots to be found on the internet but although it wasn’t exciting as in nobody comes here or it’s a secret it was very, very nice!

More to come!

Berlin, second stop. Beelitz Heilstätten.

After our short stop at Bad Oeynhausen it was back to the freeway and off to Beelitz Heilstätten, the larger part of the trip. We went to Beelitz Heilstätten last may and we were blown away by this great urbex location. That day we could only visit the more vandalized men’s part of the complex because the better female part had a tour going on. So back then we decided we would visit again next trip to Berlin. But….it was disappointing. Except some smaller houses all was locked down very tight, everywhere signs that we could visit a website and book a tour. We tried to make the best of it and eventually found an entrance to the cellar, we decided not to go for it because i had to slide down and we couldn’t know what it would bring us.

We did enter the places we could and did our thing. Below you can see the impression from this visit.

 

We spent like 4 hours there and continued our trip to Lichtenberg where we had our first Hotel. Trip was easy, hotel not that difficult to find with the S-bahn close by. Time to unpack and go for the city.

All shots in this post made with the Sony A7r and Zeiss 24-70 f4.
