This was photographed at the weekend in the run down and derelict Stirling District Lunatic Asylum , Scotland which was first opened in 1860. It is due for demolition soon so we had to trade carefully after a little breaking and entering was achieved. (all in the cause of a photo you understand). My son Dean took the shot while yours truly did his modeling duties.

Hi Victor,
Love the b/w,it gives it even more of a haunting feeling than it would have had,i can feel the stories and thoughts coming out of those walls practically,didn't know it was coming down.Dean did a good job with the camera work. That's a scarey shot. Congratulations on your EC award,really well deserved and congratulations on your E book being out too.I'm in the no frame category.

Hello Victor,

You express your innermost thoughts and feelings with great aplomb in your Art, and I can read so much into this incredible piece of work. I can certainly relate to the "fear" in the imagery. It is truly amazing.

Congratulations on the release of your book.

Take care,
Ken
