Bunker in the woods.....

Blogger friend Ladyfi is a British lady living in Sweden, has a absolutely wonderful photoblog, and posts in amazing detail some photographs of some World war 1 bunkers, that were found and preserved in Sweden, in the woods. Like massive Viking helmets, rising from the ground. Have a look at them here . (She has kindly allowed me to use some of her photos here).....

Some of her photographs, taken inside the bunker, give a lot of "character"  to the bunker.  Mean looking, darkly foreboding, sinister chap,  sniffing and being disapproving about what today's world has come to......suddenly Archie Bunker came to mind...(that's how old I am :-)

I wouldn't want to be inside or even nearby such a bunker  on a cold dark night....:-)

The old Man Bunker, white of hair
falling over his wide eyes
that reflect
the beauty and light
of the green outside;
a dark snub nose
sniffing superiorly sideways
and dark lips
wrinkly carved cheeks
pursing to the left
in abject disapproval’
“Hmmpf !
What’s this lady doing here with a camera ?”
