something very unusual from your everyday photography style :) 

Do they have a plan to reopen it or something?

To tell you the truth, i haven't been around that area for years... But passing by train, i don't see the building anymore :(

well it seems like one of those shots that may be something in the future as before and after shots you never know as you may be back in few years time and it will be completely different and foreign looking not something youre used to

Yes, it is more likely to be gone forever... The other urban exploration shots in this military hospital is another story... The house still exists but now it's sealed off 100%

yeah I heard many places around Germany have same story now they're sealed off to keep random wonderers away from there seems its a shame but most of the time places like that get sealed off and not everybody gets a chance to see them before they get buldozed over or renovated

I hope they restored it, that's what the keeper told me... But in the end, i can't go easily there, it's in the middle of the industrial port... When i take the train to Oostende i'll check if it is still there :)

Well, it's a combination of things... Whn you enter the city by train you see these big buildings, and i always felt like they were empty... and when i noticed a possibility to enter from the train, two days later my photography friend invites me to go there :)

I think it looks great, but then when it is your own you are more critical :) The amount of times I have clicked away then realised I still had iso800 from the evening before and the new images are really grainy....
