KOLMANSKOP-GHOST TOWN

Kolmanskop, the name in my language Afrikaans, for Coleman’s hill, translated from the German: Kolmannskuppe is an abandoned town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia. It is 10 kilometers inland from the port town of Lüderitz. After World War I, the town gradually declined when the diamonds slowly ran out and ultimately became a ghost-town when everyone finally moved out in 1954.Although many dozens of Kolmannskuppe photos exist in private collections and in archives, here are a few rare ones taken by my brother-in-law, Johan “Reppies” Repsold on one of his photographic excursions to this famous ghost-town. READY-AIM-SHOOT! THIS IS CALLED “ALL IN ONE”  A well-planned shot showing 3 angles of spaces in a single take. “LIGHT AND AIRY”Not a makeshift coffin in the foreground, but an ancient “diamond sluicebox” “HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN” 63 YEARS AND COUNTING “IT NEEDS A NEW ROOF”Happy to say, the guests won’t be arriving just yet, so there’s time enough! ANOTHER DAY-ANOTHER LOOK “NOT A BEACH COTTAGE-THOSE ARE 10 KILOS EAST OF HERE.”A very sunny view makes me mindful of the beach.Content by-Tranquilpen©Photos by-Johan “Reppies” Repsoldwhy not display your own literary or photographic content right here?SIGN UP HERE: https://niume.com/53402

Hello, my name is Andre’ Hartslief. I finally discovered, that man’s whole purpose in life, is not to do the right things in life or to be good, to be successful or famous. Our entire purpose in life is to express divinity through every one of us. How we do that, is by transforming ourselves completely, from an old state of existence to a new state and when we start removing those limitations. It is only, then, that the intelligence which gives us all life, namely, the source, begins to express itself unbridled through us.
