looks like an apartment I rented a few years back! Well, not exactly - such a great image, the textures on the walls, you can almost feel a sense of trapped psychosis!

Hauntingly beautiful! Wonderful work!

Thank you, Jose

This is awesome! I'll have to look into this place. I'm fascinated by asylums.

Fantastic image! The detail, point of view, and that touch of orange from the window in the next room is awesome! f/v/FB

Gary Heller replied:

Thanks, Julie. I was so happy to se the color in those old shades when we ventured in here.

Holy cow Gary. This is the first piece of your work that I've seen, and boy, do I want to see more. Just a fantastic job. I wish I could spend more time on each posting as I used to, but sadly, I can't. Just know that if I don't comment on each one, it has nothing to do with whether I like it or not. f/v
