Just me and Berlin baby!

Hi All...my first post in this section and my first real larger explore. Let me first say I am not a photographer and have much to learn. Pics are taken with my phone and a GoPro.

I was in Berlin for a couple of weeks and it was my goal to hit up at least one place. While I had connected with a few fellow explorers, we were unable to coordinate so I did this one solo. I took some safety measures but the solo part really added to the whole creep factor. Creepy AF!

Berlin has a lot of places and a lot of them are online with full write ups. I chose an old children's hospital complex and went through several of the buildings. It was built in 1909 and shut down in about 1997. It's had numerous fires in the main building over the years and I stayed off the upper levels in those buildings as I had read someone fell through the floor and was seriously injured.

When I got there, there was new boarding up around the outer fence so I had to take a lap and find a place to go over the fence. It's a big complex right in the middle of the city. Getting out was over the fence right into an apartment complex playground and I then casually just started walking out like I lived there.

This was an amazing first experience and although I scared myself numerous times, it was so worth it. It had just finished raining and there was broken glass everywhere so you can imagine all the different sounds. A few times I was sure I heard walking and twigs breaking. I anticipated finding other people there as that had been written to be common but found no one, which just added to the creepiness.

BEST.RUSH.EVER.

These are a few of the outer buildings.

2. I walked past this smaller building not thinking too much but then pic #3 jumped out at me!! Hilarious! lol

Kabbalah is an undramatic tradition that requires great patience and stability. One of the reasons for this tempo is that everyone has to mature his potential gradually and thoroughly at his natural pace. In this way his life's work unfolds at the right moment in his own and the cosmos's time.

Some cool shots and angles in there, looks like a great spot, and fairly big too.

What's the deal with Germany? I keep hearing that it's such an ideal place to explore but I don't understand what makes it that way. Is there just less demolition and redevelopment in general compared to North America? Less security? Less cops? Are pedestrians less likely to freak out and call the police if they see somebody snooping around some ruins across the street?

They were so creepy and cool. Too bad they've been tagged over but one of the best rooms I went into.

I can only really speak for Berlin and what I've learned being over there and chatting with other people, so take it with a grain of salt. The city was pretty beat up after the war and then with the Wall, parts of it were very neglected. They have huge debt from trying to rebuild so there are a lot of buildings and properties that have just been left to sit and rot.

There was definitely a lot more development going compared to my last trip there and a lot of the sites that are publicly listed online for exploration, were either gone or sold and development had started i.e.: that amusement park in Berlin with security and dogs.

My general experience was that people just stick to themselves. I wandered in to a lot of old buildings that I thought were empty and usually found some type of art studio and no one ever stopped me or asked me what I was doing. I saw very few cameras but dogs.....men and dogs behind fences! lol

Oh yes! I was thinking holes you might drop a leg in but there were some full body sized holes you'd just disappear into.

So cool you've been there! There are soooo many places even just in Berlin. My other choice was one of the old hospitals but all the comments online said it was a gay man hook up spot and you definitely would see naked men and various sex acts and going solo....I figured I'd go to this location instead. Kiddie ghosts or sketchy nakedness....tough call! lol

I'm embarrassed to say I eventually found a craft beer place over there. It's such a big thing where I'm from, all the German pilsner tasted a bit like swamp water. Cheap as dirt though and who doesn't love riding a train and drinking a beer.

Absolutely love #4 from the inside set. That infinity shot is awesome. You'd honestly be surprised the pictures you can take on a phone or gopro. I have taken a couple which could have passed off as a dslr with my phone. Sweet spot, great first post and your pictures were all really good.

Thanks so much! That infinity shot was kinda creepy too being in there and wondering if something would pop up and look at me. lol

I figured I'd see how many pics I am taking before I invest the money in a decent camera but was pleasantly surprised with these.

Thanks for the feedback!
