Agnus Dei, Belgium March 2013

Recommended Posts

Another place we had to battle through treacherous conditions to reach as this place is quite literally in the middle of absolutely nowhere!

This was once a nursing/rest home and closed some time in the last decade. In the intervening years the rest home part has suffered a large fire but the chapel has mercifully remained undamaged despite it's close proximity to the main burnt out area. The chapel is small but right up there with the most beautiful places I have photographed, it was incredibly peaceful stood in there sheltered from the snow falling outside, taking in the atmosphere of the space.

Love that Mooks, a difficult job with exposure when you want the clarity of the stained glass with the detail on the interior!! Nice!!

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      The well known Lycée V. has been a grammar school for girls only. It#s been closed in the 1990's and abandoned since.

      A large hospital,build in the 60's and will be demolished soon. It was one of the hospitals where they also removed the lamps and tables in the OK room.
      But still a nice location for a Saturday with a nice staircase.
