Another abandoned swimming pool, this one at Red Army scrap yard Altes Lager, near Jüterbog, Germany. Shot taken with Olympus C720UZ in 2003, nearly ten years after the Russian Army left Germany.
This rusted Soviet Red Star was left behind by the Russian Army when leaving Germany in 1994. I found it in the grass some ten years later when supervising a work for money project on the barracks area (Jueterbog Neues Lager), which – amongst others – involved collection of scrap metal. When I looked next time, the star was gone. It has probably been recycled into a street lantern, or a can of baked beans, or a spare part of your car.

This opens a series of abandoned swimming pools I saw in many former Red Army barracks areas in East Germany, as well as in former Israeli Settlements in Gaza Strip and in bombarded facilities in Lebanon.
