Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Escape (take a look at some of the entries). After racking my brains as to what images might suit, searching for quotations that might lead me to something, I suddenly realised….it was a complete no-brainer, on my travels, I had visited the infamous Colditz castle.
Colditz, as I’m sure everyone knows, was the ‘escape-proof’ castle used to hold the most persistent escapees of the allied forces in WW2.

First time I saw the castle, from a distance was in 1993, but we didn’t get inside that time. The next time was in 2000, and we saw the site of the Theatre tunnel.

So here are three images, scanned from my slides and processed using some apps on an iPad to look a little older….Before digital photography, I didn’t take as many images, and it was a problem in low light…these slides are some of the only images I took, and not fantastic. But in the spirit of the challenge, here they are…

  5. Wow! I watched the tv series and am a fan! Great to see the real place! One of my wishes is to visit it myself. And the famous theatre tunnel! Escape proof Stalag! Great entry!

    • Yes, I was an addict of the 1972 TV series…loved that theme tune! But of course, like all these things, it was a sanitised view of the real experience…Thanks for your visit to my blog!
