These were taken on a recce to explore an old decayed building near me. The property was abandoned after a fire, and has just been left to rot (although I gather there are plans to renovate into 'luxury apartments'). I wasn't too sure about access so travelled light hence all hand-held (which wasn't ideal).

Over the years, the gardens have really taken hold, so its difficult to stand back for the bigger picture, hence a series of smaller details.

Thanks for looking, and thanks for all the comments / clicks on yesterday's Parys Mountain series.

Terrific series depicting sad neglect - all good images but V1 takes it for me with that great perspective, plus the wonderful tones and textures

A lovely series, very atmospheric.
Reminds me of "The Children of Green Knowe" for some reason, think its the tree in v2!

Really interesting set of images. Looks like a great place. Really like the series of doorways in V1 and the beautiful old tree in V2.

this is fabulous Chris. I love the almost dreamlike effect of doors behind doors behind doors. Focus looks good, colours are nice, and considering its a delapidated building, it has a beauty to it. Cracking job.

Thanks all - #1 is my favourite too - I actually remembered to post in the correct order this time. I'll get the hang of all these special e2 functions soon.

The series was posted after a conversation at the meet yesterday. Was trying to describe the place to someone else and this seemed like the most effective way to do so. I could have been a little more careful with some of the processing but didn't have much time this morning!

Not all of the images stand in their own right but hopefully they add to the overall picture.

Love V1, it's the sort of not-quite-symmetrical composition that plays tricks with the eyes, demands careful attention. V7 is my favourite of the rest. Super reportage set, really conveying a sense of being there.

Thanks for your kind words folks!

Probably wouldn't have posted these if it hadn't been for our conversation last week Pete. I had a couple of images that I'd already played with & quickly processed a few more to give Nick an idea of the type of thing he's find there.

Let me know if you fancy a trip there, happy to lead the expedition!!!

Great series. I like the tree (2) and the stairs (7) but my favourite is the doorway (1) with it's subtle tones and depth.
