A glimpse inside abandoned luxurious ex-Soviet spa resorts

For this series Reginald Van de Velde photographed many of the remaining sanatoriums in Georgia. The Caucasus lived up to be perfect for the construction of spa resorts, mainly due to the presence of hot mineral springs and water containing radioactive isotopes. Resorts focused on balneotherapy to treat people with circulatory, respiratory and pulmonary diseases. The people loved it.

At its peak the sanatoria attracted a couple of hundred thousands visitors a year. High-ranked officers and lieutenants from the Russian Army relaxed at these resorts – even special dedicated military sanatoria were constructed, serving only military personnel. With the majority of the USSR leaders based in Moscow they simply connected these spa resorts with a direct train line to the capital. In Mother Russia, anything is possible. Stalin frequented the baths many a times and a shrine devoted to the communist leader still reminds us of those glorious times.

Cut off by lava, pot growers refuse to let go of dream

Dale Altman and his grandson Josh Doran live on a 5-acre (2-hectare) plot atop a hill on Hawaii's Big Island by the erupting Kilauea volcano, where they grow medical marijuana.
They are the last remaining residents on Halekamahina Hill, after two roiling streams of lava spouting from ground fissures and flowing into the sea, completely cut off the community.
Altman, 66, estimates they have $100,000 worth of marijuana in the field that they are harvesting.

Chaos on the Amsterdam canals

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Amsterdam is a lovely city if it wasn't so damn crowded. Bikes, trams, cars, pedestrians. They all get in each other's way, constantly.
It's the same on the lovely canals.
When the sun is out the tourists get in their rental boats, the locals get in their sloepjes and the guys working get on their barges. And that can man chaos.

Venice from Above by Dimitar Karanikolov

Venice is one of my favorite cities ever. If you go at the right time of year and day that is.
The last time I went I didn't arrive until 17pm and left at around 23:30pm. Perfect, as all the tourists had already boarded their bus to go to another destination and I got to see Venice with all it's lights.
THat's not what Dimitar Karanikolov shows us in these images, but they do perfectly display the many hidden little alleys you should really explore if you ever visit.
