One of the great things about living here in Berlin, Germany, is that you have a LOT of great sites nearby (mostly in what was once East Germany) just crying out to be explored. I am only happy to oblige. One site I visited recently, in Vockerode, Germany, is about an hour’s drive from my home, and it’s an UrbExer’s dream come true. As one of very few protected “heritage” facilities, Kraftwerk Vockerode is a superb location for HDR photography (heck, any kind of photography, actually). Unlike many abandoned buildings, Kraftwerk Vockerode is completely unmarked my graffiti, and has suffered none of the vandalism that has plagued the legendary abandoned sanatorium at Beelitz-Heilstätten, Germany.
I have already posted several shots from this location on in my Flickr Photostream in the Kraftwerk Vockerode set, if you’d like to take a look see, and I do have a few more sets of brackets to process from that same shoot, some of which will show up in this blog.
