Another superb image, this really motivates me to try some Urban exploration. It's becoming quite big over here but i'm not sure what the consequence is of getting caught, but I would love to photograph the decay here like you have.

@Ainsley: I was on a Photo WOrkshop. Perhaps you can find them going to places like this.

Again, the processing powers up all the echoes of the place . . like throwing a switch of recollection.

Laurette from Johannesburg - Fourways, South Africa

A superb capture and very thought provoking image. The processing you have done works excellently for this image. The light through the window for me is very strong but that is what makes the image so powerful for me. Indeed a story to tell in this image . Well done ! Wishing you a great weekend.

La maison abandonnée. Les fauteuils roulants aussi! Une image très émouvante.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

The lighting in this shot is a bit harsher than yesterdays and totally changes the feel of the shot! This image displays more of the angst and despair for their condition! Nicely captured! ;-)

An interesting shot of this wheelchair with the missing rear wheels. The image has an "aged" feel about it.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Interesting to see how bright light seems to not make this such a depressing place. The textures captured in the flaking paint really stand out nicely here.

Somewhat sad... the peeling wall, the chair,... All seems so old and depreciated... You captured perfectly the mood in the room... Impressive effect.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

Wonderful shot. The blown out highlights just add to the lines of the wheelchair and radiator. You said you were going there, so I am glad you got some good shots.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

A harsh setting to capture ... what a depressing place to 'live' in if it was in this disrepair when inhabited.
