Another treasure we’vew found on our abandoned places tour ’15: An abandoned paper factory deep in the black forrest.

LEATHER – news from the ABANDONED tour ’15

“LEATHER – an abandoned leather factory – barricated for children” Why barricated? – it was a nice story visiting this place: Sunday noon, trying to find an entrance – making a loop around the complex – all windows and doors bricked; High walls and fences. No way in. We intendet to leave. While discussing that just infront of the building next to the main street, we saw a door open. Inside some noise.

Volcán de Colima

Motivated by a Spiegel Online sequence just released these days about the’Volcán de Colima’ (3850m) I have browsed through my photos of the year 2007 and I’ve found my view of the volcano.
