Pennhurst Set 2 - 1

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 2 October 2014 in Lifestyle & Culture.

I thought for the month of October in anticipation of Halloween, I would return to Pennhurst . abandoned asylum. I took all of these images with the HDR setting on my camera.

The image has a foreboding mood about it. The image looks lonely and threatening somewhat. Fine shooting.

Editing and idea are great. I may have located the shoe out of the "center" of the image! A subjective opinion! excellent work dear friend! HUGS, Adela

You've captured such a feeling of pathos with this shot...I'm reaching for a tissue ..

2 Oct 2014 6:45pm

@Jeff & Pat: It was a very sad place - most especially the children's areas.

There are a lot of stories in that place, I bet. And you captured one. Wouldn't you love to hear the story?

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Interesting textures, but the lone shoe seems to exude the loss of life to me. Looking forward to this series.

Linda Candilas from Cameron Park, United States

Really like the textures, good idea for Halloween. What camera do you have that you have a HDR setting on your camera?

2 Oct 2014 10:54pm

@Linda Candilas: I have a SONY alpha NEX C-3 mirrorless.

Malaura from France

Grand sentiment d'abandon avec cette pantoufle solitaire traînant dans ce lieu désaffecté. La couleur, comme une brûlure, donne encore plus de force et d'intensité à la scène. Amicalement :)

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

The burning color does a fine job of projecting isolation and abandonment. Did you go back to Penhurst or are you mining last year's trove?

3 Oct 2014 12:13am

@Harry: I am going back to the spring when I was there. I took many, many images and the subject is so depressing I do not like to post them for too long at a time.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

The loneliness of a lost shoe. Very cool shot and processing.
