  • DMZ - the World's Hottest Border

    DMZ - the World's Hottest Border

    It is most likely the one border that is constantly in the focus of the world. The demarcation line between North and South Korea is always hot and edgy. You better hold your horses and don’t get silly, because the soldiers have their finger on the trigger. But beside from that, the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in South Korea can also be considered as a political version of Disneyland.

    Derelict Military Barracks

    On the outskirts of Bath, one of the UK's most popular tourist cities lies this crumbling derelict military barracks. It opened in the 1940s and closed over 50 years later in 1993. A few years ago there was "news" that the site would be converted into retirement homes - nothing seems to have happened with that plan though.

    Boston Portsmouth Air Show

    Last summer, I went to the Boston Portsmouth Air Show at the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease, which was the first annual show of its kind. Combined with a clear, sunny weather, it made for a great first experience using slide film. There were oodles of planes of all shapes and sizes to explore and various back-to-back flying exhibitions to check out. Best of all, being an aviation enthusiast or expert was not required to appreciate all of these unique sights!

    Freedom Square - Kharkiv - The Biggest Parade Ground in Europe

    Alright I will come out with the outstanding trademark of this landmark right now: It is is the largest parade ground in all Europe - big tush - even bigger tush. Well, this said we have to say of course that parade grounds are not so spectacular in most places of the world, but in the former Soviet Union averything militaristic had a certain sex-appeal. And of course the freedom square is adorned with massive Lenin. One icon of the past, who still feels the force of the future. And Lenin reamins the dominant figure of the square, overlooking it and having a daily market in his very back.

    Mt.Inwangsan – the Green/Holy/Touristy/Millitary Hill

    The construction of the lomographic guide of Seoul is gaining pace and content. And so I thought I should pull out a merry old location to join the jam. A few years back on my first stay in Seoul, I discovered a green mountain in the middle of a city made of concrete and steel. Mount Iwangsan is a big city delight with a lot of incentives and shamanic ghosts.

    The Spirits of Fort Delaware

    Fort Delaware, a notoriously haunted military fortress built around 1817, served as a prison during the US Civil War. Much suffering and death occurred at this site, located on an island in the Delaware River. When my daughter's fifth grade class took a field trip there, I jumped at the chance to play ghost hunter. Here's what I found.
