Decorative details


I recently had the chance to take a guided tour of an old village near Berlin called Alt-Lübars. The tour included a walk through an old concert hall / ballroom called the Labsaal. The hall was badly damaged during the war and was left to rot during the DDR times. Luckily it was rediscovered in the early 1990s and has been restored to its former glory. The paintings on the ceiling really appealed to me - they almost seem like they're glowing! It's Tuesday again, so if you like old stuff take a look at Rubbish Tuesday.
