Dead, hollow, abandoned (Linz, Pt. I)

Due to recent real estate investments of my employer I had the opportunity to shoot at a very interesting location: The empty, abandoned offices and production halls of Quelle (German mail order company, became bankrupt some time ago).Actually, it's not that abandoned, there are plenty of construction workers ripping out the walls and copper cables to renovate the buildings.Nevertheless, the feelings remain the same: Loneliness,  silence and the devastating effects of stupid financial decisions.There are some great places to shoot. E.g. the vast tunnel system that makes you feel like you're in some secret military bunkers.The dirty, empty offices where a lonely ceiling fan is still spinning.The shallow maintenance corridors between the walls that are covered in dust and spider webs.Just take a look at the photos to see what I'm talking about!And yes, that IS a shopping cart in an office! And no, I don't know why it's there! :DStay tuned, I'll be back and bring some more photos of Linz' locations!
