I enjoyed these images you show of decay.

Like the angle of the cross-bar and the dent in the RH bar. Decay like this is good, Jose.

Decay... with a view!

Gine said...

C'est une très belle image ... enfermement ou évasion ?

Tricia said...

Ok, I can't fit through the bars on the window, but maybe I can climb over the wall using the bars on the window! =)

Jacob said...

You have a plethora (my favorite word!) of decaying places in that area...along with some of the most beautiful buildings I've seen. Must make you slightly schizophrenic! ;-))

As Bratcatt said, it it a beautiful composition; the field through the bars almost looks like a fake background - a painting.

joo said...

But what a view! Superb photo JM!

Louis la Vache said...

A fine image, JM. It opens the imagination.

Randy said...

You photographed this so wonderfully. I love the cracks in the wall.

Jack said...

That is just beautiful, JM. The foreground stone is so interesting, and the field seen through the window is completely unexpected.

Beautiful and brilliant JM! Really a nice composition (and I'm not just saying that because I "framed" my picture too! :)

It looks like an old jailhouse. Don't fence me in! MB

Leovi said...

Great texture. I really like the compositions with ruins in the footsteps of time. Modeling time and affects more rapidly in the works of man in nature. This is a nice picture.

Interesting, superb capture! Love your composition! There's a sad, dramatic feel to it and I'd love to know it's history. Hope your week is going well, JM!
