Sunshine on the Loo

Sunshine on the Loo

One of the bathrooms in the Château Lumière with a little sunlight peaking in. But assumably in the past all doors were closed during “business hours” and due to no windows, only artificial light was available.

Entrance

Entrance

One of many entrances to the metro network in Bucharest. On a weekdays afternoon it’s not too busy in here – but beware the rush hours!

 

Moon Halo

Moon Halo - A big halo around the moon

Moon Halo

When I came home on Friday evening, the 18.01.2019, a big halo was visible around the moon.
As time was tight, I only took one handheld shot…

As I don’t remember seeing a phenomenon like that before, I checked for it:
In rare occasions, light reflected by the moon breaks in ice crystals in high altitude and create a halo around the moon. It seems to be a rare phenomenon and is often only visible in a photo but not by the bare eye. In this case… without seeing it, I would not have taken a picture that evening!

Watertower

For some people a rather uncommon building but for others just a regular thing: in the twilight the water tower almost looks like a flying saucer on a landing pod.

In the Kitchen

Today the kitchen stays cold and the supplies are out!
As all the staff is currently absent, visitors are kindly advised to bring their own victuals to clean up after themselves.

Watchtower

Watchtower - At the corner of an old industrial area outside Brașov, Romania

Watchtower

At the corner of a partially abandoned industrial area just outside Brașov an old watchtower still stands above the walls. And the tower is still in use: a guard still oversees the abandoned area for no vandals and thieves  get through and to the parts that are still in use.

Cloud Maker

Cloud Maker - Nuclear power plant Leibstadt

Cloud Maker

Big clouds escape the cooling tower of the nuclear power plant in Leibstadt. On a nice day it almost looks as the clouds for the rainy days get produced in facilities like this one.

 

Château Lumière

Main hall of the Château Lumière

Château Lumière

Most likely the big atrium which lets the light shine through the roof to all floors gave the Château Lumière the name. An amazing atmosphere welcomes the visitors after entering the main door. The big entrance hall looks majestic and in a way mysterious – very welcoming for abandoned building.

Wrapped

Just outside Brașov at the main road a wrapped building got raised. Yet unfinished it stands like a partially unpacked present in the evening.
