Part of my thinking behind this series of posts is to get a bit of feedback from all of the readers, which should help me formulate a crisper view on my photography. It’s been very heartening to see your thoughts on some of my abstract images, so I thought I’d also mix something a little different in this week.
As the Tuesday Photo Challenge has the theme of Abandoned, this week’s Warped Wednesday image kind of fits pretty well…
This is an image that I took during a bit of urban exploration a number of years ago in Westborough, Massachusetts. This is inside the farm that was part of the state hospital (I say was, as this building has been razed).
When I chanced upon this interior, I immediately had a sense of being inside the hold of a ghost ship, devoid of life and stripped bare; somewhere, there was the foreboding that all could come back in an instant: crew, canons and full ship to ship combat.
That’s why I decided on a 5 shot HDR series that I processed in a rather stark fashion, using a grungy look to get the desired effect.
I’m curious to find out how this image speaks to you.
