Gutted

Part of a derelict psychiatric hospital just north of Birmingham, quite an eerie place.

Great take Simon. Loe the composition & B&W pp
BeakerSt: Thanks Andy, sorry about Ellen, belated card in the post sad
Interesting frame, crop here. Did they escape ? smile
BeakerSt: Probably not, if it's like other institutions some 'residents' probably needed other types of care but were instead just locked away and forgotten
Nice B&W shot.
BeakerSt: Thanks Bernie
Ace BeakerSt! Wonderful composition.
BeakerSt: Thanks, quite straightforward when windows are left hanging like this smile

As always, your composition goes out the roof. Excellent capture here Simon! I visited a similar place a while back and as you said, it was eerie beyond belief. I couldn't even make myself go to the second room...
BeakerSt: Thanks Mia, kind of you. I agree places like this can be a little odd to be around

Hi Simon - I've not been by your way for a while but I see you're getting on just fine without comments from me.

I've just reviewed your last dozen or so and I think that they could all earn their place in a good stock library.

Some polished and consistent work there, my friend.
BeakerSt: Thanks Colin, nice to see you again. I'm barely finding the time to shoot and post let alone go blogging around but you are always in my RSS feed smile
excellent tonal range and the composition do give that unsettling feeling...nicely done...
BeakerSt: Cheers, v strange place but very photogenic

A very thought provoking picture, and incredibly well executed too. I'd be pleased with a picture half as good as this one.
