Kuprava

When we were in Latvia we went to visit friends staying in the east of the country. We had a nice evening when, among other things, they were telling us bits about the local area (while mosquitos were showing us their idea of fun). When they mentioned a closed factory, a red lamp flickered in my mind and I persuaded them to take us there the following day in the morning. The place was rather in a bad shape. No equipment left, many floors, walls and ceilings missing, a substantial pond in the middle of biggest hall etc. Obviously, absolutely no one cared about the facility after closure somewhere in the beginning of the 90-ties.

But there was one up-side to this. At least you do not have to worry about some security guy with exaggerated sense of responsibility nosing around. And there was where to roam, as the area was pretty big. After a while we gathered that the place must had been a brickyard (I guess many broken bricks and a pile of clay helped us coming to that conclusion). The whole facility provides a few hours of sightseeing and a few takes to make the camera happy as well. And, as a cherry on the top of the cake, there was a ladder leading to the highest roof 🙂

In the name of experimentation, I have made them black and white this time. Enjoy.

Zdrowaśki,
