Something personal...

Its been a really long time since I posted here, but I've been working hard. I’m in need of updating my equipment and traveling to new locations is not money friendly for a student. I was preparing something special but it went sideways, maybe I will be able to do it at the end of summer if not, than the summer of 2015. For today I have something different, it’s more personal than any other post I did. It’s a house I once lived in, but due to family feuds we got “evicted”. It’s even more so personal for my parents. The sad part is, nobody lives there and the place is falling apart for 22 years now. One of the owners is using the house for garbage disposal, probably to lower its value so he can buy it from the others. I won’t go anymore in to detail so here are the photos.

This was the living room.

The kitchen.

The bedrooms.

No explanation needed.

But the neighbors had it worse.

I don't really have a favorite picture in this post.

All flights delayed

I didn't post for a while, I just couldn’t find the time to do so. But today I decided to drive to the old airfield. This very same airfield was used by Edvard Rusjan and his brother Josip Rusjan. Edvard is considered the Slovenian pioneer and airplane constructor. I could be lying but I think this was the same airfield Edvard made the first engine powered flight in 1909, that’s 6 years after the Wright brothers. Funny enough Edvard designed bicycles and loved to cycle when he was younger (The Wright brothers owned a bicycle shop). Now I knew that the building with the old control tower was abandoned for quite some time, and today I got myself to take a closer look.

First look of the building.

After I had enough of the outside, I decided to take a look on the inside. Some doors were missing so it wasn't hard to get in.

Green mold on the ceiling.

The green room.

Very natural curtains.

The oval office? :D

Pizza anyone?

A bathtub in the middle of, what I presume was a bar or a restaurant part of the building.

A metal spiral staircase to the old control tower.

I was a bit disappointed at the top, was hoping for some old electronics.

The spiral staircase from the top.

Old chair next to a chimney on the roof.

Now imagine my disappointment when I realize that this 5 meter tall statue is not depicting Edvard Rusjan but an Italian war hero, Prince Amedeo, Duke of Aosta.

Ruin with a view

I was on vacation when I accidentally stumbled upon this lovely restaurant.  Equipped only with my phone camera, but I think I still managed to capture some nice pics. 

Saw this strange looking structure in the blistering sun.

The entrance kind of reminds me of the Jurassic Park building.

The entrance was locked so I went round back.

There was no fence out back and no locked gates. But I did find this lovely terrace.

A bar maybe?

I presume this was the terrace stage.

The place was quite big, rooms were everywhere.

Another large place/terrace on the other side of the locked front gate.

Another bar. Broken mirrors everywhere, somebody is going to have a lot of misfortune in their life. 

Behind the bar was probably the kitchen.

A view from the bar.

Delivery bay.

Behind these bushes the path takes us outside again.

A Giant gazebo with a small DJ stage on the side. 

Oh, did I mention that the whole complex is sitting on top of a "cliff" and has an amazing view of the ocean.
Somebody dragged this piece of an old armchair here to enjoy it. 
So did I, enjoy the view I mean. Couldn't find another armchair :D
