Pictures taken winter 2002


Sluiskil will always remain a mystery to me.

I was informed through the "German connection" that the Sluiskil cokes factory was about to be destroyed, soon, very soon ... I should go as soon as possible, but only on sundays to avoid  unpleasant encounters with security.

Freezing fog, visibility less than 100 meters ... I had some trouble finding the place, but when I did I could hardly believe it was abandoned : lights were on inside the offices, the fence was closed but in good condition, I heard the sound of machines ... maybe my information wasn't that reliable after all ... what to do ?

If  I could only see 100 meters, so could security : they could surprise me anytime, but I could stay unnoticed too ... temptation - fear - risc calculation - decision :)
