  1. As i promise i came back on the other day to this wonderfull house, this time someone was there and some of the windows where open. A take some photos with this incredible light. And finally explored the rest of the house, it has some really big rooms, each one more beautiful than the other. I also got a lot of new information on the property. You can read about the first visit here: Now let's go see the house. This is the dinning room, In here the family would dine with a wonderfull view of the river and the city on the other side, with their carved fireplace giving them warm. This room is really big, around 3 to 3 and a half meter tall. This is the most beautifull in my opinion. It would be the living room and also a place to entretain guests. It as a incredible fireplace with carved wood and as views to the front of the house and river, unfortunately the floor is full of pieces of chandelier. This derelict chapel once hosted private prayers, the priest would come from the church every sunday to give it to the count's family. This is the guest room, also very damaged. This is the entrance hall, it has a wonderfull dome covering it, through this doors already passed princes, dukes, counts, Presidents and industry tycoons. This stairs lead to the main bedroom, the iron work in beautifull. Over the stair a rotten skylight let light shine on the old stairs. This is the main bedroom, it as a balcony but is too exposed to the street, in here the last true count died 40 years after the monarchy was abolished. This is the extension that where added to the house in the 30's It's really a wonderfull house, a remainder of a far by gone era. Hope you enjoyed.

  5. Day 2 of the 'Tour Di Bastardi' and after ramming some croissants, coffee and that pre packed dry bread/toast stuff down our necks, Darbians, Masa and myself kicked off proceedings with a MASSIVE want of mine... Cant think of any better way of spending a glorious Italian summers morning than wandering around a sprawling, dusty, rotten hospital site... Rather picture heavy but hey... I don't care! ... As always, thankyou please for looking

  9. Greetings OS, me again. Just got back from an ace tour with AndyK, Kriegaffe and a non-member. We also met up with Vals Darkroom for the weekend (Nice to meet you ) We visited some sweet locations and although this one has been a bit trashed it's still a nice place with a fair bit to offer Not a lot of history here but it seems as though this theatre was part of a complex of leisure facilities as there are a few other bits connected to it like a gym which has been bricked off from the theatre now.Enjoy: Cheers
  10. Afternoon all, Another regular spot on the tour trail and now sadly demo'd. Zone Braams. This is an old NATO satellite communication control centre. It was built in 1969 and started communication in 1971. Apparently, a new satellite is going to be built here now the old one has gone. Didn't take loads of photos here but happy with those I took. Cheers for looking in.
  11. Morning all, Second visit to this large complex of buildings after the first time was a fail due to not getting access. This building is just one of a large complex of buildings which were built in the 1930's as National Socialistic Political Educational Institution during the Third Reich period in Nazi Germany. After the fall of the Third Reich it has been in use as a school, to house a Ministery and boarding school. Camerashy posted the image below from Google earth as the outbuildings were designed and look like the 'SS' of the Schutzstaffel - maybe just a coincidence?? Part of the building from Google Earth forms the ‘SS’ symbol of the Schutzstaffel who were a major paramilitary organization under Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party (NSDAP). It began at the end of 1920 as a small, permanent guard unit known as the “Saal-Schutz†(Hall-Protection) made up of NSDAP volunteers to provide security for Nazi Party meetings in Munich. Later, in 1925, Heinrich Himmler joined the unit, which had by then been reformed and renamed the “Schutzstaffelâ€Â. Under Himmler’s leadership (1929–45), it grew from a small paramilitary formation to one of the largest and most powerful organizations in the Third Reich. Built upon the Nazi ideology, the SS under Himmler’s command was responsible for many of the crimes against humanity during World War II (1939–45). The SS, along with the Nazi Party, was declared a criminal organization by the International Military Tribunal, and banned in Germany after 1945. This may be purely coincidental but despite its history and what has passed its there still remaining, in good condition after many years. There was less decay than I would normally like to see but was an impressive place to photograph with a lot of history even though negative. On with the photos. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. Thanks for looking
  12. Not sure what to say about this one... No idea about the history or really what it was! Family home? Religious order of some sort? One part looked like it could've been used for a shop... Maybe one of our Euro counterparts could throw some light on it...All I know is its BLOODY LOVELY!!! ...Cenobium B... As always... Thanks for taking a look!
  13. Off to Europe again! Belgium, Luxembourg and a bit of France thrown in for good measure... Met up with that Oldskool fella and kicked off the exploratory proceedings with this fantastic church... and a bacon n egg sarnie... ...Raven Church... Thanks for lookin'... More up soon...
  14. Evening all, Another Belgium residential, this time a small dwelling in the countryside that was a little small for four guys but we managed. Not much known on the history besides the owners come and check on it from time to time but we went early on our last day and did the business before making our way to a few others on the way back to the ferry. On with the photos. Not many taken as there wasn't much and some of it was a little messy but we managed an hour. There was a piano in the other room but too much mess and seen better pianos in better locations so just took more or less what you see here. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Cheers for looking in. Tim
  15. Stop off No 4 and one of the sites I was REALLY looking forward to... On a quiet German street, in a quiet German town lies this remarkable old dentists house, with its surgery left pretty much as it was when it saw its last patient... Without a doubt one of my BEST explores yet!! Hope you enjoy... ...Dr Dents... As always, thanks for lookin'
  16. The penultimate site on my last Euro jaunt was this MONSTER... Easy in, splendid weather and I had the place to myself for the morning... Industrial porn of the HIGHEST calibre... BOSTIN!! Thanks for lookin in
  17. Yep... Another quirky abandoned house somewhere within the confines of a small European town... ...Maison Theo... Thanks for lookin in...
  18. 2nd stop on my recent Euro jaunt was this DELIGHTFUL Belgian manor house... Chock full of bits n pieces AND people by the time I had to go! Really is VERY popular at the moment and its easy to see why... ...MANOIR DP... Thanks for looking... Germany up next

  20. Evening all, Another location during March's trip saw one of two revisits which involved this place and Dr Annas. The last time we visited was last October with bad light, lots of rain (set here: http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/showthread.php/6410-Schloss-H-October-2013) As you can see from the photo below, we had some better conditions for the entire 4 days. We made it to this place on our last full day before heading towards our hotel and was glad we stopped by as the light really made it and it gave me an opportunity to challenge myself to shoot the place mostly using the 50mm prime F1.4. After arriving, some guy who said he was security turned up but was happy to let us continue taking photos. There was little really to protect (besides the building) but he wandered the entire place and gave it the once over and left. Nice guy and no harm done. All I know from the history is that this was a hospice, nursing home or care establishment of some sort but what there was, was nice to shoot. On with some photos. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Thanks for looking in.
  21. Day 3 of the N.K.P.S 1100 Belgium Tour and me n the Welly Queen are up with the lark and hotfooting it to the days first location and in keeping with the rest of the tours sites its a walk in!! Which was nice!! We decide to work from the bottom up and find a huge collection of files and plans in the cellar all slowly but steadily decaying! NICE!! Up into the rest of the house and its just as good! Stacks of goodies left behind, pristine rooms that give the impression that the residents have popped down the shops and contrasting ones which give the impression that the house is about to fall down! And to top it all off a collection of stuffed birds!! Cant beat a bit of taxidermy!! Enough waffle... Heres some pics from both of us... ENJOY!! ...VILLA HEIL... ...The Cellars... ...Ground Floor... ...Upstairs... Thanks for lookin' in...
  22. ...OLD HOGEY... Now we've got that xmas nonsense out of the way, I thought it was time to share the rest of the N.K.P.S 1100 Belgium Tour... After the AWESOME Maison Morphine and with the light quickly fading, we needed something fairly close by finish off day2, Chateau Hogemeyer would be just the job! Unfortunately I'd left the details for it at home! BUGGER!! A quick text back to blighty and we were sorted... Cheers Baron!! Derp could be one way of describing this one, but derp on a GRAND scale!! It would be a very short lived mooch if it wasn't for the collection of old motors round the back. Still, a splendid way to end day 2's shenanigans... Pics from the pair of us as always, ENJOY!! Thanks for lookin in... Day 3 will be up soon...
  23. After 3 days of super sweet Belgian coffee, Coca Cola, pastries, waffles, burgers, and, of course, MILLIONS of roll ups, the 1100 Belgium Tour had taken it's toll on me and NK's teeth making them DESPERATE for a scrape and polish!! Unfortunately, our teeth were in such a HORRENDOUS state, the dentist suffered a nervous breakdown and had to go home for a lie down... Time for a bit of D.I.Y... WELCOME TO ...VILLA CAVITY... And that's it... Myself and NK would like to thank you all for taking the time to check out our Euro adventures, hopefully much, MUCH more to come in 2014!!!
  24. You join me n NK as we draw near to the end of day 1 of 'The N.K.P.S 1100 Belgium Tour', by this point we'd both been awake for about 32 hours but fuelled with copious amounts of coffee and roll ups, we forged ahead to our next destination... By Belgian standards its a bit fooked, by UK standards though its a bit nice!! Heres some pics from the pair of us... ...Villa Doktor... And just enough time in the day to fit another one in!! Bit of a strange one this... Felt a bit 'weird'! But still very photogenic due to all the bits left behind, although some thieving little shite has half inched the skull AND the living room lights!! GRRRR!! ...Maison Islam... And there it is... 1 day down, 2 to go! Oh, and we've got some night visits show ya too!! KEEP 'EM PEELED... N.K.P.S OUT!!
  25. Well, it finally happened!! After setting off late, another sat nav failure and forgetting the ferry booking number, we're on board the boat sniggering like overexcited schoolkids!! 'WE'RE OFF TO F**KIN' BELGIUM BAB!!' After a rather choppy crossing and randomly bumping into Maniac and the boys off to France, (nice to meet ya lads!) we arrived on foreign soil and the 'NKPS 1100 Belgium Tour' could begin... And we couldn't have started it off any better!! Rumoured to be 'sealed' we decided to hit it up anyway as the word 'sealed' doesn't exist in the NKPS vocabulary... We prefer the phrase 'challenging access'!! Anyway, enough waffle (for now) here's our first location of the tour... Chucking NK's pics up too... Hope you lot enjoy!! 'The Hangmans Hunting Lodge' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ That's it from us, for now, hope you loiked it, another 13 sites and associated scrapes to get through, so keep em peeled for some more NKPS shenanigans!! You never know I might be able to get NK to do a report...
