this would be an awesome scene for a torture horror movie, screams being heard in the background and someone with a needle walking in the background

this is an awesome photo, i love the lighting.
I'm going to New York in a couple weeks...i'm sorta hoping we go to the part of New York with the abandoned buildings. to take pictures.
abandoned hospitals creep me out.
especially mental ones.

thanks for the comment!

I didn't go to Waverly and for all I heard, it's mostly gutted and empty. The place attracted lots of attention after a few tv shows did reports on this "terrifying, haunted" place. Oh well...

~gutted~ is what i've read.
those stupid, insipid 'ghost hunter' shows are laughable......

i'll probably still go, just to check it out. closest one to me, about 2 hrs away.

Loving the perspective and the lighting!
Somehow, I really love that there's a piano in the picture, it's beautifully soothing in a way. But almost unexpected.
I love it!

I absolutely adore the angle, and the wheelchair looks so... expressive. I don't know how to describe it.

Gawwwwwwwjuss! I love the angle, and the lighting is just beautiful. Do you mind if I use it for reference in a Design project I'm working on? I'm trying to collect as many shots of stuff like this as possible. Thank you, either way, for the privilege of seeing this!

oh well thank you for such a comment! use this as a reference, I'm the one that should be praising you. Don't forget to let me know how your project turns out.

Thanks so much! Yeah, I've got this extreme phobia/obsessive fascination with old mental hospitals...I figured it's a slightly more interesting idea for a Design project than taking pictures of your friend's kids or something (not that there's anything wrong with that). The only problem is, I've been looking up Victorian postmortem photography, and it's really freaking some of my classmates out...haha.

Dilluted blues and browns are always nice.
So are abandoned hospitals.
^_^
I really wish I lived somewhere more interesting with better photo oppurtunities. Better yet, I wish I could just graduate now and get the hell outta here.
