Locked Away

By Morgs  
The second shot of a project from an abandoned asylum that is situated just outside the village of Talgarth, Powys.

This chair was not touched by either Mitchy81 or me when we entered this old mental asylum. It was very poignantly situated in the middle of a large room, off from which were several rooms with very sturdy looking locks.

Many untold stories in this very depressing place.

Hope I've done the image justice.

Love this. I've worked in an old asylum in the past, and they can be very beautiful but somewhat sad.

Nicely done Dave, theres plenty of angles in this.
Could this do with an Ian in his stockins and sussies?

Gives the impression of an interrogation room. May be a splash of blood and some teeth on floor!

Nicely processed Dave, you have certainly done the place justice I would say.

Congratulations on the hc Dave, great image.

Very eerie place this, had a bit of a moment when a group of us paid a visit up here, was a bit of a challenge to find our way back out...
