West Park Asylum - Quick Snaps Part 2

Second set of snaps from West Park, all taken with the LX3 on pinhole setting - in retrospect some are a tad too dark, but given the sheer volume of them I'm afraid I can't face brightening them all up in Photoshop, even with the aid of an action!

  5. Thanks Bob, glad you like!

    Cat: ta ever so, and agree with you about the clothes - one cannot help but wonder who wore them and what thoughts were going through their heads at the time .... it's a sobering idea ...
