Stavshult Republic - A blessed mess of Photos

This is my ego-boosting photo blog, featuring abandoned places, nature, street photo and quaint places. I typically do not want to have people in my pictures, unless the photo is specifically taken for that purpose.

I took a stroll with the camera a sunny Saturday  in March. It is a great way to get to know a new place. The camera makes you see things ...

I took a stroll with the camera a sunny Saturday in March.
It is a great way to get to know a new place. The camera makes you see things you normally miss.

Here are some random shots from Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain, Berlin

Maybe you ain't, but I sure as hell am!

Shop is closed. I think...

I was broken, Now I'm art.

Door is screaming


I am fascinated about these small random doors in the facades in Berlin

- Let's renovate the facade!

Enter on you own risk

Gentrification is happening rapidly all over Berlin. 
Where do the ones go that cannot afford this? What do people do who do not want to take part in the constant hunt for success, money and consumption?

Well this is what they do.

Alternative living.

It is strange... the people living the alternative life in freedom from imposed rules and regulations , usually do not want to have rules enforced upon them. However, they want to prohibit me to take photos in a public space. Double standards according to me, and I didn't give a fuck...

Teepee Land felt like a much friendlier place.

The Free Box. Zoom in and read the sign

Actually, I was looking for a way to get into the old Ice Factory when I found Teepee Land. 

This looks so quaint. Would not mind spending a week or two during summer here.

Garbage heap from one of the squatted areas

Ok.. I do not know exactly what this is, but it does not look like a housing approved by the authorities....
A tent with a garden, what more can one ask for?

Another Area in Central Berlin. Close to Görlitzer Park.

In old East Berlin, Friedrichshain, there are still a lot of houses in a terrible estate. Next to newly renovated beautiful buildings.
Here are some pics from one of them.

This is how they live
A birdcage to protect a tube?


Someone left their Flip-Flops...


The difference

I do not want people in my photos, but what do you do if you go to Florence and Verona with a poser? Well... you shoot some pics! Her is ...
