Quick report as I don't have any historical info.

Fun explore, although got cut a bit short, after being caught, so I need to go back one day to finish it...

 

Secca was really nice. He offered me some coffee and cola, while waiting for the police.

Police was less amused and they didn't wanna believe I was there, on my own, just taking pics.

Ended up being searched, then my bag + car and finally by the policeman destroying my memory card with his pocket knife, handing the remains to the security guard.

Luckily I was shooting on 2 cards simultaneously and I managed to hide 1 of the cards while waiting for police... Having a backup sometimes makes sense. :)

 

Now, on with the shots;

Wow this place is amazing!

 

I'm not sure what the legalities of the police destroying your memory card over there - they certainly wouldn't be allowed to do that over here in the UK. Glad you got away with a backup :thumb

Looks a cool place, shame about security and police though. Personally I would run rather than wait for the police. Can you put an approximate date in the title please? Cheers :)

Thats a lovely set of pics, looks a cool place. Nice work  switching the memory cards, does seem a bit over zealous of them to destroy it  :unfair:

Thanks Guys!! Much appreciated!

 

Agree, destroying of the memory card was way out of line and probably not legal, but at that particular moment I figured;

Memory card = 25 euro. Making fuzz and risk being taken to the station and getting a possible fine for being at this location is just not worth it....

(Especially since I knew I had a backup anyway..)

 

Funny thing as the officer also told me to leave Belgium and go back to NL, once they were done searching everything... Right...

Drove 10 min to my next location instead. :)

 

 

(PS. Apologies for forgetting to add country/date, again... Will remember next time. :) )

Looks great.  Good you was shooting on 2 cards simultaneously. I always do so either, two slots for memory cards are very convenient.

      The Chateau LadyBug is a beautiful place to explore, with a lot of different styles and photo opportunities.
      The main building was built during the XIXth century.
      It became a restaurant during the 80's when a rich investor decided to reconvert himself in the restauration.
      He renovate the place to reach the standards of the most famous restaurants, hire a famous cook and won a star in the Michelin Guide quickly.
      Things turned bad for the owner when his chief cook decided to quit.
      Then, he tried to test his luck again by hiring two new cook, but without success, at all...
      Customers started to desert the place, bills started to piles up and bankrupt arrived few months later.

      Currently, the place is for sale for more than 2M.
      We explored it just in time before it was closed and cameras were installed.

      Nachdem er 15 Jahre für Nigeria Airways geflogen ist, wurde dieser Airbus A310-222 zu einem Cafe umgebaut. Zum ende wurde die location dann noch als Nachtclub genutzt. 
      Das Highlight des Cafés, war die Terrasse auf der Tragfläche.
      Ebenfalls steht noch ein Eisenbahnwagon auf dem Gelände, der als Eisdiele umgebaut und genutzt wurde.
      Über einem der Eingänge hängt noch eine Cessna 150G.
      Neben aktuellen Bilder habe ich, aus dem Internet, noch Bilder wie er zu den Zeiten als Cafe aussah.

      The abattoir opened in 1960 and closed in early 2017. They opened up a new abattoir which can slaughter over 2 million pigs a year. This site will now be demolished for 100 houses, which is a relief to local residents who wanted the abattoir closed.

      Océade was an indoor waterpark in Brussels, Belgium and the largest of its kind in the Brussels Capital Region. Originally part of a 3 park franchise, the other 2 parks located in France, it was the only park to remain in business after the French divisions closed. Running at a loss, the park was acquired by the Walibi Group in 1992, with management experience built up through Aqualibi near Wavre just south of Brussels.
      The park has continuously expanded and been renovated, and was the Belgian leader for water slides, with 14 slides in the park. Most notably, the Hurricane is record holder for the fastest European slide (average speed 40 km/h), and the Barracuda is the longest duo slide in Belgium. With over 240 000 visitors per year and a combined volume of 1 800 m³ of water, Océade was a major leisure attraction in the Brussels Capital Region.
      In 2016, the Brussels city council announced Océade would be forced to close to make space for its NEO project, a redevelopment project envisioning the replacement of most of Bruparck (including Kinepolis and Océade) on the Heysel Plateau with a shopping district and residential area. Under public protest, closure was repeatedly postponed, and the final closing date was 30 September 2018.

      All the slides and equipment have been bought by a Romanian water park and are currently getting dismantled and re-located.

      The photos were taken with my mobile phone, reason being, i was on the beer and the access was a little tricky with alarms going off.... So i wanted to get in and out quickly! 😉
