Shadows of the Past

By moiral
Morning all. Here is a shot that would fit into the Saturday shadow category. The disused bus stop and the old hospital garage in the background. This is in the grounds of the hospital I used to work in. The boulders have been placed there by NHS Tayside to stop the movement of traffic through the hospital. They are to be found blocking all paths that vehicles may take. This is because since the hospital closed, it has had the guts ripped out of it by thieves. Processed in Photomatix. Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's shot.

I love the light on the stone building Moira and the shadows are pretty good too.
Photomatix has left a bit of a ghost around the tree in the sky. It does that I found.


The same thing happened to a hospital on the outskirts of Glasgow, the place was looted and smashed.

Lovely light on the side of the building and good shadow too - but so sad to see what was once a vibrant and useful building slowly falling apart. Sad
