Excellent

The once happy pink chair almost mocks the spirits of those who suffered in this room. Very evocative image. VF

Brooklyn, NY - United States

Thank you Charlie for your wonderfully descriptive and insightful comment. Not surprising, I find that there are images, feelings, and even memories of smells and some trepidation that stay with me from each place after a visit. The almost absolute silence in these places are somehow comforting in a strange way.

As a sampling of your work Gary, I find the element of mystery and a semi-parallel time frame intriguing. When I turn away from your work there is a tiny visual fragment that remains in my mind like a footprint or like the warm hollow of a seat in a chair after the sitter leaves. This element is present in it seems much if your work. I like it and find similarities from Northern Renaissance and Baroque periods. Very appealing! This one especially grabs me. It is a decaying memory fragment to me.

Thank you, Amy. Good for you, I get an adrenaline rush whenever I'm exploring these old abandoned places...like a child in a candy store :)

Awesome capture, Gary! That chair rules. :) Just visited my first abandoned insane asylum down under. Love doing things like this!

Hoffman Estates - United States

Wonderful detail, color, and light! The contrast between the blue sky outside, and the complex greys in the room are perfect. The chair really completes this. v/f
