If these walls could talk, Sniper Tower Pt. II

This ist the second of a two part series about the Sniper Tower in Mostar, Bosnia i Hercegovina. You’ll find the first series with basic information right here.

Getting into the Sniper Tower might be quite tricky, but it’s worth it. From the main square turn to the left ally and follow it to the end of the building, then go around the corner and right here there should be some stone blocks enabling you to cross the wall and enter into the eerie site. I highly recommend to do it at daylight, first of all because you are able to enjoy the beautiful views on the upper floors, secondly and most importantly it’s supposed to be a hotspot for druggies at night and obviously there is no police here to take care of you. So be cautious and watch your steps. The place is especially well known for it’s graffiti art, some of the pieces can be seen below.

Greek Series: Urban Life in Athens

A short introduction to the series

In September 2013 friends and me backpacked trough Greece and discovered a beautiful and amazing country torn between its ancient history and struggles of the present. I shot a ton of pictures in these three weeks and it took me months to sort them out. But my plan was right from the beginning to publish them on this blog. I just didn’t know how exactly. So after some brainstorming I decided to organize them thematically and post them in separate collections and not in a chronological order, which didn’t seem like a good fit for this blog. So anyway this is the first part of a long series of pictures which will continue through the winter. Occasionally there may be some postings with wintery shots from Vienna but apart of that it will get sunny, at least over here (well, maybe not right from the beginning) 🙂

In full awareness of the ancient history of Greece and their stunning remains I want to hold the old stones back for now and show you some impressions of urban life in Athens as I saw it.
