Ahhhhh Angel … there ya go again … creating the most intricate, detailed image of something so seemingly sad.
thank you, Lois – sweet of you to say so. i love the little details in pictures. trying to figure out how to properly emphasize them all is one of the biggest joys of editing :)
WOW….now that is a few lights! LOL Great image though…..awesome capture!
I love how the the bare wire hangs over the huge pile of broken lights— a very interesting touch.
it’s funny, i didn’t even notice it there until after i was done editing. odd as it is to say, i think i was focused so much on the background that i tuned this foreground element out. there is something sort of fitting there, wish i could say it was something i planned!
Lovely imgae .. i agree with stephen, the heavy duty wiring hanging down and broken connection between it and the lighting tubes is great, let there be lights is an irony since the wiring cannot connect to the lighte themselves… if you see what i mean
That is a lot of strip bulbs! What a waste! Just love your work, fab as always
Fantastic! I checked out your other site and it’s wonderful. There aren’t too many abandoned places in my neck of the woods (wish there were). They all have such stories to tell!
There is almost a sense of throwing up its own internal decay…fascinating and fabulous.
i never thought of it like that, but it’s a great descriptor, and certainly apt in this case.
Great image – fantastic composition and detail
But wait. You didn’t stage this?!!!! No no…there is so much disturbing stuff within these lost buildings. Do you ache the whole time you are in them or is the art exhilerating? Bless you for your finds. Applause as ever for your talent.
a bit of both, honestly. mostly i am intent on finding details like this that in my opinion are unique to each place. i very rarely stage shots except in very rare cases where an item needs photographed and the lighting it is in makes it impossible. and thanks for the compliment :)
