Church of the protection of our lady, Poland - May 2015

Recommended Posts

After having been offline for months, it was time to work on some pics again.

Yeah, cool… 1 set down. :)

500+ to go…. :(

 

Brief history;

In 1913 this rather pretty brick church was build.

Back in the day it belonged to Russia or Ukraine, not sure.

 

After the 2nd WW, it was given back to Poland and wasn't used as a church after that time.

Until 1990 it served it’s purpose as storage space/warehouse and was abandoned after that time, in desperate need for repair.

 

Even though there’s nothing left inside, it was still a nice place to spent an hour and take some snaps.

The murals are in exceptional condition, considering it’s been left to rot for many years.

 

Hopefully one day it’ll be restored to its full glory, although I doubt it ever will be.

 

 

So on with the shots;

      This former school swimming pool was built in 1904 and abandoned in 1997. I happened upon it randomly and had a hunch that there might be a swimming pool inside but didn't expect much given the state of the exterior. Well, it turned out to be pretty decent inside. Clearly nobody has been inside here for a very long time. The pigeons have set up shop and went absolutely bonkers when they saw me. They've really done a number on the place, or should I say a number two? It's pretty minging to be honest but at least there's no shitty graffiti or vandalism. This was a night visit so I had to light paint all my shots. I didn't do too badly considering but it would be cool to see it in daylight. Hopefully someone else will have a look soon.


       


       


       


       


       


       


       
      This long curtain covered spectator seating for some reason

       
      The floor up here was well dodgy, you can just about see some holes on the left of shot

      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.

      When I die, honey
      when I part with the sun
      and I will be a long rather sad thing
      will you take care of me then?
      you will embrace your arms
      and you'll fix what broke cruel fate ...
