Th dental room
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.
I value your comments.

SONY NEX-C3 4/5 seconds F/11.0 ISO 400 40 mm

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

Toutes tes photos me rappellent des thrillers, des descriptions de labos dingues...Je suis fan de ce genre de livres (Chatam, d'autres...) des histoires folles qui prennent corps avec tes clichés...ça me donne un ressenti étrange... je ne sais pas si ces auteurs ont visité cet endroit, ou quelque chose qui y ressemble... mais ça fait frissonner... je crois qu'on ne doit pas ressortir indemne d'un telle visite...
Ton traitement est vraiment nickel pour cette ambiance si particulière... B ravo ! bonne journée et bon séjour, si tu y retournes... J'avoue que je serai à la fois attirée en mode curiosité, mais pas vraiment emballée à cause du mal être qui doit en découler... *****

Wonderful, treatment is beautiful, it reminds me of a drawing. It's always lugubrious, I never dare to go alone in such building.
Have a good week.
