Devils & Dust

"Devils & Dust", from a Bruce Springsteen song and album of the same name.

I was going to visit a few historic sites as well as an excavation today, but the trip, which was organised by my favourite archaeology professor at the University of Hamburg, got cancelled. No new pictures today...

Instead, I edited a few photos from my trip to the Nazi-built beach resort Prora on the island Rügen (off the German Baltic Sea coast). I've visited the place last year. I recently watched Band Of Brothers again - every single frame of which has undergone this awesome 1940's colour grading treatment. I've experimented a little and this is the result. I think it fits better than both the original colour version, as well as the black&white one. More pictures on my homepage, which also features interior shots of the giant building, and is soon to be both modified and updated. Other great pictures of the Prora KdF resort can be found on the following website, which belongs to one of my favourite photographers of abandonment and urban decay, Björn Sahlberg from Sweden.


Have a nice weekend!

Wonderful pics, particularly like #2 :)

By coincidence, I pulled that CD off the shelf and played it just a few days ago

Thanks a lot Ian!

Haha, well - it is a great CD! I love the acoustic albums... The Ghost Of Tom Joad and Nebraska are great too.

Dieses Gebäude hat so ne komische Athmosphäre.
Dieser Strand dahinter..und das groteskeste daran ist, dass ein Teil zur Disko unfunktioniert wurde.
Gute Bilder, wirklich besser als farbig und schwarz/weiß.

Lovin #2. You nailed the sky in that one and the angle is awesomeness. I looked on your website and saw some of the interior pictures as well. Band of Brothers is absolutely amazing! Kudos to the director of photography for that entire series :]

Thanks so much :-)
I didn't like some of the later episodes when they were in Bastogne and the episode after because there wasn't much progress, I think they could've made one episode out of all that. The first half of the series is absolutely brilliant though.
