The photo below is the main statue on the war memorial. it’s of a Russian soldier holding a child whilst crusing a swastika with his foot.

There were lots of murals carved in stone depicting various parts of WW2. This one caught my eye. The powerful image of a frail woman with a walking stick as planes come in and drop bombs near her. the woman to the right looks as if she’s crying on the ruins of a bomed out building.

road trip.

A stop motion video from my recent road trip across the czech republic and austria with a couple of mates.

Police

We went into the old olympic village here in berlin. Sure you can do a tour but that’s no fun. We wanted to go and explore it on our own and not pay the 12 euros to get in. We we walked around the fence to find a way in. The fence was down in one section and we were in. success.

Walked around for about 45 mins then we got busted by security and the guy who in charge of keeping it maintained. The head guy yelling at us and carrying on about how we aren’t allowed to be in there. Blah blah blah is all i heard till he mentioned he is going to call the cops. We told him that it wasn’t needed and we will leave.

NOPE. He called the cops and we waited for about 20 mins till they came. Mind you that it started to piss dwon with rain and he didn’t let us have shealter under the trees. The cops came and were awesome. They didn’t want to be there dealing with us and tried to hurry it up and let us go without an arrest.

The head guy didn’t want to let us go. He told the police to look at out photos on the camera.There were photos from inside one of the buildings and some from a window we had taken.Head guy kept tellnig the police that we were in that building and the cops kept telling him that we weren’t you could clearly see it from the photos. Then the head guy and the police walked away and talked for about 10-15 mins. one of the cops came back and said that he was trying to sort it out with the guy so we can leave. head guy was really pissed. He must have had a sleep

head guy decided to prosecute and we were taken to the police station in the back of the car. AWESOME!!!!!!!

At the police station the cops and us were talknig and making chit chat. They said sorry that they had to process us but they had to because they were called out.

it started raining again and lighting was beeing seen form inside of the police station. everready said something in german and asked one of the cops if it’s the right word for lightning. The cops said yes. I looked at everready and said “this isn’t the best time to practice your german” i laughted and so did everyone else including the cops.

so after two hours at the police station it was time to pay the fine. we didn’t have enough money on us. one of the cops was going to drive us to the ATM. as I was leaving i said to KoD ” don’t go anywhere, we’ll be right back” everyone laughed again.

while leaving being prcessed and as we were leaving the staion one of the police men said that he hopes this doesnt put of off germany and that we will be back.

that was our experience at the old olympic village because we didn’t want to pay the 12 euros.

Music and light painting

Ever listen to a song that you havent heard in ages and then all the memories pop back into your head?

As I was plodding along with the music on shuffle I heard a song that I haven’t heard in a while.

Well the first thought that popped into my head was me in my underwear on a fucking hot summers night welding and fitting lights to all sorts of contraptions till the early hours of the morning.

When I had finished welding and modifying the LED lights that i bought it was onto the backyard and time to do some light painting.  I spent a good few hours just having the album on repeat and loud enough that it can be heard in the yard.

There were lots of photos taken that night and lots more over the course of time. some were done in the back of my place, some in drains and in abandoned buildings.

John Part 2.

I did imply in JOHN PART 1 that there will be a part two. THE WAIT is over. you can sleep assured that it has arrived!

I can hear the cheers and the fireworks going off.

party two is really boring. just photos and a stupid opening. YAY!!!!!

OMG it’s a canteen. too bad it’s not like the one in star wars. I don’t think star trek had a really cool canteen in it.

Little baby gas mask.

While in the kindergarten we came across a few of these small gas masks that the children would have worn. It must have been a traumatic experience for the little boys and girls not knowing whats going on and why they have to wear these masks.
