Ghost town

The olympic village of 1936 was changed to barracks for the German army during WW2. After the war the russian army took over the place and didn't leave it until the early 90ies. Wonderful place for taking fotos, and the entrance cost only 2€! (There is a sign on the entrance that taking fotos with a "normal" cam is okay, for SLR you have to buy a license for 10€.)

    Looks like an amazing place. You got some great pictures. I guess you don't really need an SLR. 8D

    @yarglags: Thank you! :-) Well, with an SLR I would have aimed this picture a little higher... ;-) But I also had my Lubitel with me. (It's a TLR, so I didn't feel too bad about it...) The film is still in the lab, medium format always takes so long... :-(

    I have a Lubitel Two too. It's a really great camera. I think an SLR is considered a professional camera but the Lubitel with a 6x6 negative is hard to beat. I've been admiring your Clack pictures, 6x9, so good. I think I need one.
    Happy snapping!
