  1. In 2017, during a holiday to Japan, I visited the Hakone area, south-east of Mt Fuji, via day-trip from Tokyo. One of the stops was Mt Hakone – accessed via cable-car from lake Ashi. Due to timing, we only had a few minutes a the top of Mt Hakone. This was my first encounter with the eerie - Komagatake Ropeway top station. (Above pic is a screenshot from Google Maps street view) In 2019 on another visit to Japan I decided to make a point of visiting this mountain again – to get close look... In 2017, only the ground floor of the station was open to the public, holding only a ticket counter, small gift shop, a photo booth, and some vending machines. The stairwell to the second floor was blocked off, and the sign for the bathrooms was covered up. (Screenshot from Google Maps street view) This enormous concrete block, perched on a cliff edge of Mt Hakone serves as anchor point for the cable car, and looks out over lake Ashi. Its showing the signs of its age. Wikipedia says it opened in 1963. It feels strange that something this run down is still in operation... In 2017 – I desperately wanted to have a look upstairs of the creepy building, but didn't want to risk trying to sneak past the stairs from the lobby... In 2019, the blocked sign was removed from the stairs!, and I guess they opened up the bathrooms on level 2. As soon as we entered the lobby, I decided to dash for it... my wife happily exploring the gift shop downstairs. The blockade on the stairs was now moved to the second floor – with only the bathrooms accessible. With no tourists on this floor yet, I figured – this is it - now or never!, and I jumped over the boom and headed upstairs – careful to listen for any noises from upstairs... My heart was pounding as I snuck further! I had to stop shooting a bit as some tourists just around the corner from me came up the stairs to visit the bathrooms... (noises from camera shutter...) As I went higher, you could see that the walls of the upper floors were never even painted. I wonder if they have ever been in service since 1963! I guess when they build this behemoth, they envisaged a restaurant and maybe visitor centre, maybe accommodation in the upper floors? A wooden trimming on the stair handrail as you approach the top floor. The top floor- A chair against the wall,and some colourful stickers against the glass doors. The only colour in this dreary building. I'm guessing one of the top-station employees comes up here for their lunch break... The top floor is basically empty, except for some communications gear that was probably installed much later. After this I snuck back down. I regret not checking if any of the bathrooms were open. More external shots: I think these are heat-lamps,keeping the motor-controllers from freezing. Besides this top station building, the only other structure visible at the top is Hakonejinja Mototsumiya temple. A blue tile on the ground along the path to Hakone-jinja The temple shows no signs of life... On the way back down: As we were ascending the mountain, from the gondola, you can see some wooden cabins in the forest below... Some of them looked a bit worse off... I decided to go have a look when we came back down... There was a sign board next to the road leading up the the cabins – The Hakone Prince Dog Cottage. It is spring – sakura season. The cabins near the bottom of the mountain were still looking ok – they were probably still being rented out, but there were no signs of any visitors or staff. As you go higher up the mountain, it was clear that some of these cabins have not been in service in years. Completely overgrown, full of moss, algae and weeds. A tree growing out of the front porch suggests the age of disuse. Peering through the mosquito netting, I can see and old CRT TV and VCR There are downed power lines and more trees. Some of the side roads leading to the cabins are completely overgrown. I don't think anyone has walked down there for years. No more Mario-cart for you White blossoms Looks like this one has a fridge, that probably held those two tubs of whatever. Outside After this encounter, my first experience in “urban exploration”, I started noticing, in the town where we stayed (Atami), and along the roads of Yugawara which we drove through, there were plenty of eerie relics- (Screenshot from Google Maps street view) and many run down and abandoned places- I made a point to explore further... A roadside visitor centre / rest stop, found across the road from a toll-gate. No idea how old this is – its definitely not in operation anymore. No name to it in Google maps. I pulled off to the side of the road and walked across the empty parking area. It had a crazy amount of parking space. I don't think it was ever full. There was a small van parked out back, and a guy messing around. No idea how it got in – both entrances were barred. Mt Fuji in the background Remnants of a hotel or possible a rec centre / maybe hot-spring pool- Dated 2006 There is some underground structure as well. Looked too dangerous to explore. The upper structure, attached to the mountain, leads you to go further up Very overgrown up there. I couldn't get over the bridge to go further up. The bridge lead over an artificial waterfall I was making a lot of noise cracking through the bamboo... I ducked down for a bit while a traffic warder appeared. Overgrown pedestrian walkway. There is literally nothing on the other side – just the steep mountain. I wonder how many people have ever crossed that bridge. I think this is the “town office branch” - maybe a local council building. Only half of the building is still in use. The other half is piled full of junk. A walkway over the road- Leading to a school – also abandoned... This school really intrigued me – I thought there might be some good photos to be had. At the point, as I entered into a courtyard area, there was a car with a guy in it. He saw me to I just waved and pretended to be a dumb tourist. I continued to take a few pics, but he came out of his car and followed me for a bit... I pretended to leave. The guy went back to his car – then I doubled-back to check out the gym! Not being able to explore this area further, I left, however, later that day I noticed on Google maps that there is supposed to be a pool at the back of the school! - and also there is a road going up towards the back. Since we'd be travelling back past this area, I decided to give it one more go. At the back of the school is a forest, leading up a mountain. The road stops quite a while away, and you have to make your way through the forest towards the school. Lucky for me, a path was cleared here, leading parallel to the school. I guess to prevent forest fires from reaching the school. First obstacle was this ditch or embankment. About 1.5m deep. Continuing- As I got near the back of the school where the pool was supposed to be, there was a big ravine. I had to go down there, over some embankments and down a further set of retaining walls. Everything was wet and covered in moss. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to climb back up the walls. It was pretty quiet out here. Only me struggling through the bamboos. I reached the pool!! There was a thicket of bamboo growing around it... An abandoned hotel on the shore- When we got back to the small town to return the rental car, I spotted this place walking to the train station- I couple more random shots
  2. This was the second of two places we looked at, and was one of those 'we probably won't get into this one' places. It's always a bonus when you're pretty much convinced you wont get in then turn up & end up getting in 😀 The place was covered with mushrooms (Jews Ear apparently) and mould has taken it's hold on the place, by the time i got to the second floor started to feel a bit queasy breathing it all in, reminded me to get some masks for next time. A pretty cool place, with plenty to see and a variety of 'funky' lampshades... Started losing daylight by the time we reached the 3rd floor so the pics started to get gradually worse. History Not sure exactly when it opened but it was up & running in the 1930's. In it's day it stood on it's own extensive grounds over 3 acres. The greater portion of this was devoted to sun bathing and recreational lawns. The remainder was largely a kitchen garden which provided fresh garden produce to the tables. Quote from its promotional literature "The views from the bedrooms are delightful. Those on the front and on one side have an open outlook over the sea, the others overlook the golf links and the open country. Your views are in every room open, nothing shuts in any part of BRADDA PRIVATE HOTEL. 'BRADDA' has been entirely redesigned, enlarged, redecorated and refurnished, and is now one of the most beautiful hotels in the Island" Unsure exactly when it closed but from what i can tell it was around 2015. A proposal to demolish the dilapidated hotel and erect a residential care home, along with car parking, access and highway alterations, was submitted by Spaldrick Care Ltd in September last year. The developer estimated construction of the home would cost £5 million and create 60 full-time jobs. Around thirty families objected to the plans, as well as Port Erin Commissioners and the government's planning committee. Concerns were raised over the scale of the development, its impact on views, privacy, traffic and parking, as well as its conformity with both the Southern Area Plan, and the all-Island Strategic Plan. The plans were initially overruled by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture. However following a successful appeal by the developer this year, and on the recommendation of the planning inspector, the plans got the green-light. some of the lampshades some of the lovely mold & decay the place had to offer
  3. So back in August (yes I'm slow as ever!); a non-explorer friend and myself visited The Springs in Wallingford, which at the time was a bit of a local tourist trap; but it was an afternoon out! It had really dawned on me at this point which way this hobby is going these days. No word of a lie; there was at least 15 people in that hotel, all this new wave of "YouTube Explorer" we all have our opinions of. They were all nice enough there and then, but a couple were very, very loud and had small children with them. Inevitably, a member of staff of the live Golf Course this was on came and flushed everyone out, myself and my friend sat in an old en-suite upstairs and waited for it to die down. After that; we explored for an hour and a half or so; not much to see here, fairly plain, but it was an enjoyable day out. Upon exit the same Golf Course Staff found us, but were polite and we were on our way. The original build dates back to 1874; a Mock Tudor Style building, this Victorian Villa has been massively altered and extended from the original. Rock Star Ian Gillan of Deep Purple, purchased the villa in 1973 and was behind its and installed a guitar shaped swimming pool in the grounds behind the building before its later conversion into a 32 bedroom hotel. The last owners bought the hotel in 1995 and added a large golf course and club to the grounds. The Springs finally closed in 2014 after the owners could no longer afford the vast upkeep. The Golf Club however; voted one of the best in Oxfordshire is still open. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 #14 #15 #16 As Always Guys, Thank You.

  4. The location combined hotel, bar and cinema. The operation was discontinued in the 90's. It used to be the meeting place in this small, rural community, today the decay continues incessantly.
  5. The rehab center consists of several buildings in very different state of preservation. While some rooms of the spa hotel still look almost as good as new, an outbuilding (possibly former apartments of employees) is already partially collapsing. Unfortunately I don't know anything about the history. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
  6. The last few days I travelled through Saxony, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt to visit some spots I always wanted to see. One of those places was Hotel Atlantis and its beautiful decay. #1 DSC03039-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC03038-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC03000-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC03001-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC03002-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC03003-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC03004-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC03005-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC03006-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC03007-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC03008-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC03009-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC03010-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC03011-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC03012-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC03013-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC03014-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC03035-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC03015-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC03016-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC03017-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC03018-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC03021-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC03022-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC03023-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #28 DSC03024-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #29 DSC03025-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #30 DSC03027-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #31 DSC03029-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #32 DSC03030-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #33 DSC03032-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #34 DSC03036-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

  9. This abandoned hotel is located in Germany's middle of nowhere. It seems the whole region is in an abandonment stage. I discovered a hand full of abandoned places on my way to and back from my esploration. Unfortunately I didn't have time to capture photos of them but they are on my list. ? #1 DSC03214-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC03213-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC03192-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC03194-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC03195-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC03196-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC03199-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC03200-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC03202-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC03203-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC03205-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC03206-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC03207-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC03209-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC03211-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  10. When I first saw pictures of this Hotel I fell in love with its architecture. I absolutely love the connection of fairfaced concrete and wood. Therefore I definately had to visit it although before decay had a chance to begin. Unfortunately vandalism comes faster than decay. Despite the bad light conditions and suddenly appearing "visitors" and a barking dog that required a sudden breakup I am quite happy about my visit. #1 DSC02622-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC02612-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC02613-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC02614-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC02615-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC02617-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC02618-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC02621-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC02620-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC02625-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC02627-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC02632-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC02634-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC02635-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC02636-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC02637-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  11. Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose! Putting this one off all week with temperatures reaching the 30s, the moment came on a somewhat stormy day to check this place out, taking full advantage of the slightly cooler – yet humid air. My first explore out of the UK too which made for something special, despite being a derp it was still something different and unique for myself in comparison to the UK. There’s not much left of the place and the history is scarce, however it looks as though work began rebuilding the place but the cost of development was a spanner in the works. The basement also contained a septic tank which is no longer allowed in the region, combining that with the nearest sewer being some distance away making development even more expensive.
  12. What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks, C

  15. History Once the magnificent property in East Germany housed a spa building. Around 1950, the building was converted into a hotel, which was given the name of a Duchess. In the 90s, it was closed for cost reasons, since it decays visibly. The Explore Access was easy; the front door was locked, but some open windows and a open door at the back. My first visit was in 2011. Now I returned to see how the building has changed over the past seven years. Many ceilings and floors had collapsed meanwhile, and some areas I could't enter therefore. Unfortunately, some things were destroyed by vandalism or were stolen. For example, all banisters and the ornamented window arches. But on the other hand, the natural decay of the past few years has been very interesting. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Here are also a few comparison pictures and some photos from 2011 of rooms that couldn't be entered anymore today. 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 - Also this rose has been gone due to the collapse of the ceiling.
  16. History The holiday home was built around 1905 and used as a hotel for almost 50 years. In the mid-1950s, it was converted into a recreation home of the NVA (National People's Army of the former German Democratic Republic). The house was closed and abandoned in the 1990s and in 2003 it was bought by a businessman from Heilbronn. However, for this person it apparently only serves as a deduction product for the tax return. Because instead of investing and bringing the building back to life, he ignored it, so it fell into decay. In recent years, the house has been used as a sleeping place by homeless people and has repeatedly been vandalized. On the upper floor, almost all walls are completely sprayed with very bad graffiti now, but I haven't taken any photos of them. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
  17. This is my first video of this 60s hotel located somewhere in Italy. I hope you liked the video!
  18. Everything left as if the hotel's owners left it with the thought that they will come back in a moment. Or maybe the contrary, with the thought that they can not go back there anymore. We know that they did not come back. We do not know why. At the bottom, aprons, cups, the inscription "Welcome wedding guests". Upstairs furniture, appliances, personal items, books. Everything is abandoned, not packed, segregated, as in the planned move. No. Abandoned and destroyed. Scattered. Maybe by a vandal who accidentally got there and could not respect the place and things that belonged to someone. Or maybe by someone who did it with the deliberation that was looking for something.
  19. The Station Hotel is a grand Victorian building situated in the heart of Ayr town centre. The hotel consists of 71 bedrooms, complete with en-suite bathrooms, plus a host of suits for functions and a cocktail lounge. The hotel, which is attached to Ayr railway station, was originally opened by the Glasgow and South Western Railway in June 1866 and become part of the British Transport Hotels (BTH) at Nationalisation. It was sold by BTH in October 1951 and has changed ownership a number of times, having been owned by Stakis Hotels, Quality, and Swallow Hotels. The Station Hotel is currently the oldest and most famous hotel in Ayr. The hotel has retained almost all of its original features inside and out. The hotel started to turn away customers in 2014 and closed around 2015. After suffering neglect for some time beforehand, the building is now deteriorating; the railway station have had to take action to safeguard their customers from falling debris. Visited with @SpiderMonkey The car park is fenced off due to parts of the exterior falling off Entrance and staircase Reception Lift and staircase on the first floor Into the cocktail lounge.... The corridor leading to the next parts was suffering decay due to leaks in the roof The Arran Suite... Restaurant... The restaurant's kitchen Other public spaces around the hotel... The Kyle Suite bar area The Carrick Room The Kintyre Suite And finally, the hotel rooms... View of the decaying rear facade overlooking the railway station
  20. In the middle of the city ... the entire ground floor is flooded ... mold ... demolition .... Sports and medical clinic connected to the hotel. Another building written down for losses. Probably soon will be razed to the ground ... especially that in its vicinity grow new residential buildings. One can only imagine what sport stars were in this object. Have a look at the photos that remained inside ... (TRANSLATOR...sorry)
  21. The George Hotel as stood empty for just a little over 5 years... considering this it's not half bad inside, stairways are still intact, few if any holes through to other floors, little decay in the form of mold or interior fatigue and there's still gas in the pumps in the bar area. It's a fair size and took us over an hour to appreciate some of the victorian features still visible throughout the building. The building was sold a few years back to a local dentist for £900,000 but nothing if anything as started interns of building works to restore the hotel. which is a shame as the Hotel sits in pleasant surroundings within St George square which recently received a £21 million facelift. The Hotel as a basement area which stores the cask ales & equipment needed to run the Hotel bar. Theres rooms a plenty 60 rooms accommodation with bar(s) , ballroom, pool hall and dining room & rooftop area ... we pretty much covered the entire building in a typically dreary Huddersfield afternoon. Hope you enjoy the thread... Exterior Bar Main lobby Stair case shots Corridor shots Bed rooms The caller The ball room and dinning hall The kitchen The roof Other rooms 45 pics later... Hope you enjoyed...
  22. Hi m8s! This is the last adventure I lived with my brother, exploring and old hotel and some random abandoned houses. Cheers!
  23. The former hotel has been closed in 2007 and from the outside the building was unmistakably abandoned. But inside, it largely looked as if you only have to perform a few beauty repairs in order to use the hotel again. My visit was already in 2012. I was told that the entrances were sealed later. I don't know what has become with it today. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47
  24. History- The building is from the 'railway era'. The hotel was a hub of the community, it had a fantastic ballroom and restaurant. Many people came by rail to stay at Sutton Bridge. The hotel from around 2000 was used by an employment agency called StaffSmart to house workers they had lured over to the UK from South Africa to work in the local canning factory. People came from SA on the promise of hotel accommodation and didn't know until they got here that it meant inside the shell of the Bridge Hotel on damp mattresses lined up in each room, including the Ballroom. After StaffSmart vacated the hotel, it stood empty with broken windows until it was bought and restored to a high standard with plush furnishings and chandeliers. However, the hotel rooms were pricey and without the rail trade of people heading to the village, people would be passing through and tended to stay in cheaper accommodation in the area. The hotel wasn't open for long before closing down and ownership passed through several hands whilst falling further into disrepair. In 2015, workmen were spotted on the site removing roof tiles and floorboards to salvage as many building materials before it was demolished but its still standing now, so I don't know what stopped the demolition. Since then the building has unfortunately been vandalised and several fires have been set destroying about 70% of it. The Bridge Hotel in the 50's Explore- The hotel is close to me, so even though I knew the damage of the place it was still worth checking out. Access to the building was easy, a window round back was broken and a board to climb up to it was balanced kind of safely. The cellar floor, ground floor and a few rooms on the first floor were safe enough to walk around but past that there is a lot of fire damage. Pictures-
  25. Welcome to the Grand Hotel S. which was built from 1840 to 1842. It closed its doors in 1999 and is abandoned since. #1 DSC05761 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC05762 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC05763 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC05787 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC05744 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC05745 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC05746 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC05747 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC05748 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC05751 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC05752 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC05753 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC05755 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC05756 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC05766 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC05773 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC05776 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC05777-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC05779 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC05771-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC05769-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC05783-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
