It is said this abandoned building in the grounds of the psychiatric hospital is haunted.
When I was there I found no proof to substantiate those rumours.

I never know who to believe, Malc Wink
Love the composition, textures and tones. And the imagination.

I believe anything you tell me but it beats me how you missed that wee soul and her teddy bear when you were thereWinkWink.
Fine bit of thinking behind this image and so artistically and cleverly executed, Malc.

The composition and crop are magnificent. They speak volumes about past lives and experiences. Personally I don't need the addition of the lass and her teddy bear, my imagination can fill the gaps.

I would be too busy photographing the grot Malc,
to notice the ghostly goings on here.
Besides,being the artist that I am,I never work with kids or animals !!
Super work.

Had to come back to this image again Malc, it has a jaunting feel without being scary in the least. The little girl is quite heart breaking in the context of your image and caption. Marvellous work and imagery.
