Bombed Out by Claudio_DeSat

Anyone acquainted with East Berlin before, and several years after, the reunification of Germany will find this scene familiar.
The buildings of entire central districts used to look like this or worse – charred by white phosphorus, precariously repaired (or not at all), peppered with bullet and shrapnel holes, happily decaying away.
Remarkably, beyond the facades and in the backyards, a few are still standing in such conditions.

If you get this kind of perverse sense of aesthetics, you will agree that they have been playing a big role in making Berlin so spectacular and uniquely beautiful.

Chapel by ForceMedia

An interior shot of the Italian Chapel on Lamb Holm, Orkney. An incredible story and a very beautiful place to visit if you’re ever in Orkney. All of the artwork was painted by hand by Italian prisoners of war during the second World War.
