    Extremely evocative, sets a wonderful sense of mood and emotion, and allows me to sense a bit of your experience. Well done!

    My favorite theme as well. And this is gorgeous. Love the monochrome. Doesn’t this remind you of the haunting themes of Andrew Wyeth?

    Excellent, evocative, emotive shot….forlorn and abandoned indeed.

    I have been to this place…in my mind. Wonderfully expressive photograph of that which was once useful has been left behind.

    A beautiful image. A haunting, striking vision we have all had but are sometimes unable to see for ourselves. All of the shades of grey we find in life, somewhere between the black and the white we focus upon.

    Fantastic photo. The details are done beautifully – the hint of trees outside the window, the subtle color, above all, the light. Those are some very tough diagnoses. I hope you find a little stillness in each day for yourself.

    I admire many photos, but there are darn few I wish I could claim as my own. This is one I would like to say was mine. Wow!
