Abandoned Hospital, Ergli, Latvia. Notes with Kodak

Some time ago my location and mount of free time allowed me some quite a lot of urban exploring, some walking around, finding and shooting abandoned places. I still love it.

I think abandoned places hold a great magic inside of them and has their own character and feelings. One can only imagine how much they have experienced before they have been left alone. Amazing stories, if only I knew them all…

  1. What striking images! I’d been curating photos, recently, on the theme of living with books — and how striking it is to see a place in a moment of decay and spilled books are what remain! Congrats on your work.

      • I was only referring to yyellowbird as an idea/inspiration for maybe you to use yourself in the abandoned buildings like yyellowbird. Those are all self-portraits of her. My flickr is at flickr.com/zakpegg

      • Oh, I am sorry for the misunderstanding. I assumed it was your flickr page.
        I am checking your out as we speak. :)

      • Thanks. I am trying to take better photos and I like flickr a lot. Your photos are very good overall.

      • Thank you very much!
        I wish you loads of luck and happiness with developing your passion and hobby! :)

  2. visvairāk mani apbur tieši tie pamesto grāmatu un dokumentu kalni, nolupušās sienas krāsas un veids, kā tu to visu esi uzņēmusi! nākamajā šādā fotogrāfiju medīšanā tev mani jāņem līdzi :)

    • Mani arīdzan!
      Noteikti, kādēļ gan ne, vasara ir tam vispiemērtotākais laiks! Tieši plānoju mazliet pa Latviju apkārt paceļot vasarā, labprāt pieņemtu kādu kompanjonu!
      Šīs ir uzņemtas Ērgļos,ļoti maza, mīlīga un īpatnēja pilsēta, vairākus gadus atpakaļ, šķiet, ka varbūt pat 2008 vai 2009 gads. Labprāt tur pat atgrieztos! :)

    • I am so glad I am not the only one. I mean these places need attention, as they have lost some great amount of it when they got left alone. It is worth doing some research and making time for visiting them, I believe so! I should do exactly the same :)
      Thank you very much!

    • I am very glad that I did it! I mean, they are worth all the while, time and trouble, completely! :)
      I wish you good luck with finding and exploring them, as well as seeing some shoots!

      • Thanks, I have to be a little more cautious exploring seemingly abandoned buildings in Africa, but I attempt anyway

      • Of course, you have to be careful anywhere, while visiting abandoned houses!

  3. Awesome! I have always wanted to do this but the time factor to explore is kind of hard to come by these days. But this is great inspiration. I love all the “stuff” thrown about the place. Very cool…

  4. Nice serie! It´s possible to feel the atmosphere… the sound (silence), your own steps, and the “click”.
    ps: colors looks great. I´ll definitely take a look around your blog.
    Cheers!

    • Thanks! This place was amazing and I discovered it by accident. Hope to visit it sometime soon again. :)

      Feel free to browse!

    • Yeah, I wish those times I was more into shooting people.
      Now, in the country I am located in, it is hard to access these kind of places.
