Hole in the wall

Big empty hole, big solid wall.


  1. Nice composition, I guess is for defense needs or just for lightning the interior?

  2. I like this photo very much, but don't clearly understand what is this hole for? Too smal for both lightening and defense I guess.

  3. Great detail and perspective too!

  4. I like this too, but what's on the other side? Inquiring minds want to know.

  5. Now _this_ is a hole :-)... I think defense too.

  6. Creative idea and cool shot!
    Have a nice weekend
    God bless you

  7. esto se ve mpresionante.. me da hasta vertigo asomarme.

    un beso

  8. That's what I call a hole - I bet small boys have fun hiding in there.:-)

  9. lovely capture....nice one!

  10. "Hello"
    Hello, hello, hello.

    Nice echo.

  11. Thanks for the comments.

    Carraol: I am not sure exactly what it was for. It is part of Castle Lichtenberg and it is about two metres off the ground. So, it could have been used to pour horrible substances onto attackers.

    joo: It is something of a mystery to me, too.

    JM: Obrgigado.

    Don and Krise: It is part of the castle ruins of Burg Lichtenberg. I was never on the other side of the hole. So enquiring minds might have to follow the Google map location link and find out for themselves.

    Martina: A good guess.

    Cezar and Léia: Thanks. This is almost in the territory of you guys, about the same distance from Saarbrücken as from Luxembourg (and on the way to Martina's Mainz).

    Sonia: Vértigo! Te has dado cuenta que es un agujero en la pared y no en el suelo? Debes tener miedo de que los inquilinos del castillo te van a echar aceite caliente.

    BlossomFlowerGirl: They would have to climb up two metres first and escape the vigilant eyes of the museum personnel.

    flyingstars: Thanks.

    RogerB: Wouldn't you be surprised if you got an answer back in mediaeval German? 21st century American English would, however, be more likely. The other side was full of tourists from the US army base.

  12. That is one very thick wall! And an intersting photo.
