An interesting fact about some of the strongpoints located in today's western Ukraine and south-east Poland is that they featured pillboxes fitted with armored cupolas. It was not an original Soviet design – they were of Polish manufacture and were supposed to be fitted on Polish fortifications. In 1939 when the Soviets attacked Poland in tandem with Germany, some of those cupolas (not yet fitted by the Polish) were captured in military stores along with other material. The builders of the Molotov Line immediately adopted them for their newly built pillboxes.
Some were destroyed during brief but fierce fighting in the opening hours of Soviet-German war in 1941, some disappeared after the war but still some managed to survive till today.

Construction of the grain storage for the Modlin Fortress started in 1832 and was completed in 1844. This beautiful neo-renaisssance building was designed by a renowned architect Jan jakub Gaya and is located on a narrow promontory between Vistula and Narew rivers. Oiginally designed as a storage facility could also be used in a defensive role. Despite serious damage suffered in 1939 (and in post-war years when it was decided to demolish the building in order to recover building material) it is still a majestic site and a joy to look at. What remains today is practically just a half of the original storage but it's still huge. Wide stairs lead from the gate straight down to the river where once barges unloaded their cargoes. Remains of a crane mechanism are still there and it's a joy to sit there and contemplate the mighty Narew river flowing by.

Sometimes I need to anchor my eye on something which is not made of reinforced concrete.
Sure, I was just shooting of of the pillboxes of Alytus Fortified Region in Lithuania (what else could I do?) when, to my horror, I noticed yet another clear evidence of alien infiltration on Earth.
I'm sure you recognize this highly advanced piece of technology. Yeah, it's the famous Mobile Human Brain Extractor, the one responsible for numerous alien abductions.
Its ominous brain sucking pipe is still slung across the top of this devilish contraption.
See that?

The sun was already well above the horizon but the marshlands were still shrouded in early mornig mist. The scene was so tranquil it made me stop the car and drag my gear from the trunk.
Getting old or what?
