Other An Assortment of Derp, Various Countries - August 2016

Recommended Posts

Evening!



I've recently been catching up on the backlog from my latest, and most adventurous trip so far. We hit many locations, but some I feel only had a couple of shots worthwhile - not enough to warrant a report, but I really did enjoy these places. I thought an easy way of sharing these beautiful places would be to place them in one thread - an assortment of derp. These were takin in Germany, Austria & Luxembourg across my trip, and aren't in any particular order - although I do have some favourites! :P

Unfortunately I don't know too much about the history of most of these places, but i'll include any i do know. I can imagine y'all probbaly bored to death of my spam recently, but I hope you enjoy these! :D


Blue Sand House
We spent the night in Czech and this was first on the agenda for the next day, so after a good night's sleep, a breakfast consisting mostly of chorizo, hot dogs and cereal we hit the road. 5 hours later we arrived here, and having been wanting to see this place for so long I was overwhelmed. I was so happy I finally got here. The house was full of sand in other rooms too - I'm not quite sure how it got there, or for how long it's been there - but it made for a nice photo.

Green Ballroom
I'd heard this was under new ownership, and he was charging for explorers for photos - I'd heard it was a relitively small amount and I was happy to pay it, considering I didn't really want to piss of any Germans. But, we arrived and he was nowhere to be seen, so, obviously we gave it a go and found an extremely awkward window. After squeezing through we had a quick look in here, but with 2 of our group not fancying the access we didn't spend long inside. The place was lovely - although it's a shame the local gaffers had been in recently.

Industrial Dancefloor
We were short on time and mid-way through another long stint of driving, so this was a nice way to break it up. It was only really this room, but it was nice - more to just get out the car and go for a mooch. Was followed by a rather large and appetising mcdonalds before continuing our drive south.

Sanatorium Elisabeth
I'd got my hopes up for this place - maybe a little too much. It's in a very sorry looking state, and once again the local graffers have been in - the only piece I sorta like is this one on the stairs. I didn't take any other photos here - but I do like this one.

Cotton Factory
This place was about a 30 second drive from another derp (pretty much walking distance) but we drove anyway! My friend had warned me of the owner - and that sometimes he is there. We jumped the gate and found a way in, and it wasn't until I was mid-way through my first shot I heard the footsteps. No doubt there was someone on the floor above, and it sounded like he was dragging something. Was it the owner? Who knows - not me that's for sure! With little knowledge of the local law and none of the language we didn;t hang around to find out. I grabbed these two photos before making a hasty exit. In the off chance I'm ever in the area I'd like to revisit, as it was a lovely place.

Spiegelvilla
This was a lovely little villa we stopped by on the way to Vienna, and although rather bland it still featured a couple of nice shots.

Forst Zinna
This was an extremely large military training camp, which had clearly been abandoned for some time. This was next door to another derp, so thought we might as well check it out too. We didn't spent too long here, as we needed to find somewhere to camp for the night and we were losing the light fast. It's not looking too good, and I'm surprised some buildings are still standing.

Maison Kirsch
This was the last derp we (successfully) done, and although rather dark, and stinking of poop it was alright. It seemed to have been abandoned for a long while now - deduced from the copious amount of stinging nettles surrounding it. And i found out the hard way, whilst wearing shots. After this followed a fail, before a rtaher long and sleepy drive back to the tunnel.

Bad Gastein
I am aware this is the town, and not a derp - but it was the whole experience that made it for me. I heard secca were on the ball here, so we spent a while casing the joint and baiting potential secca to see if they'd respond, but something didn't feel right. I only nipped inside one building for a matter of minutes to grab this handheld shot. It's clear someone had been in recently, with a rather comfy chair positioned near the main room, along with footprints and a rather new looking book. Before disappearing completely I stopped to grab a couple of shots of the town - easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever had the privilege of visiting.

Thank you
If you've made it this far - thank you. It means a lot that you've taken the time out to read this, and I hope you enjoyed it. Once again I apologise for the spam, but I wanted to get these edited & uploaded before my next trip - or it'd never happen. 


So as always, thank you!:thumb

      Family holiday, got a day to myself with the camera
      This place was huge and I know I only covered 40% ish, the site covers a few miles and in 35 degree heat I felt I had done enough in 3 hours, but maybe a return next year to cover the other bits.
      I honestly stripped this down from 70+ plus shots


      There was almost a higher ranking living area once passed the main gate


      the only real graffiti I saw


      old statue knocked down

      Outdoor bath for higher ranking personal

      Another checkpoint ?


      A very hot and long road to the rest of the base

      random buildings


      entrance to an underground area


      more underground entrances

      pitch black

      led to this

      directly beneath this


      Then I found the long tunnel !!!

      which became this, gotta say, I`m not a fan of underground and this was maybe 200m long with a few off shoots to the cliff sides






      up top I found this



      then the long walk back to the car
      Cheers

      Havent posted for what seems an eternity !
      So this was a trip to Bulgaria that 7 of us went on in March.
      Wont go into the history as its out there
      Small copy and paste from wiki
      Buzludzha is a historical peak in the Central Balkan Mountains, Bulgaria and is 1441 metres high (4728 ft). In 1868 it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Ottoman Empire.
      The Buzludzha Monument on the peak was built by the Bulgarian communist regime to commemorate the events in 1891 when the socialists led by Dimitar Blagoev assembled secretly in the area to form an organised socialist movement with the founding of the Bulgarian Social Democratic Party, a fore-runner of the Bulgarian Communist Party. The Monument was opened in 1981.No longer maintained by the Bulgarian government, it has fallen into disuse.
      The monument was built at a cost of 14 186 000 leva.
      Buzludzha can be reached by two side roads from the Shipka Pass either a 16 km (10 mi) road from Kazanlak or a 12 km (7 mi) road coming north from Gabrovo.
      Now the monument is abandoned and vandalised. As the roof of the building is heavily damaged, the main entrance of the building has been closed for the public. (cough cough)
      So as said 7 of us went, 2 traveled from Glasgow (got knows why Nikon came up here to fly down to Stansted lol) met another 4 in Stansted then our final party member met us in Plovdiv after travelling from Belgium.
      So many laughs had on this trip, ranging from 1 party member going missing at night, after getting bladdered and trying 4x4`s in the pitch black, to absolute nonsense conversations after too much cheap booze.
      For me it was what a trip is all about, fun fun fun and seeing and shooting a pretty cool place.
      We spent 3 days/2 nights at the base of the monument, personally only went up twice, but I know others done it many times at all times of the day and night.
      Anyways, mixed bag, in the order they were shot























      Not happy up here !!! 200ft pitch black climb then 100ft on see-thru ladders, anyone who knows me knows I dont do heights !!
      Pretty chuffed I got to the top tbh, but bob hope I was going out on the ledge !!





      cheers
