My last Peleliu post.
One of the most interesting buildings on Peleliu is the old Japanese HQ. Bombed, shelled and generally beaten into pieces, the jungle has come back with a vengeance to grow through the .5m-1m thick concrete floors that are doing everything they can to stay together. Config: Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 28-70mm f/2.8.
These first shots give you a sense of the place. It is a big building.
The jungle is taking it over, slowly but surely.
1,000 paper cranes near a very large artillery or bomb hole.
These doors go to a room that I could not get to (stairs were removed).
I wonder what this building means to Capt. Lusczynski?
It never ceases to amaze me how plants can find a crack and grow.
Off to the side was a metal structure that served as a mess hall for the Japanese, a mechanics shed for the Americans.
A fascinating view into World War II.
