I walk on Concrete, by VeraAda I walk on Concrete, by VeraAda
I walk on sand,
but I can't find
a safe place to stand.


Exploring the abandoned hospital with ~Rozetta :)
Took a while to get the right shots.
Alternate title - Big Exit :D
Full-view it.


(yeah the stuff on the floor is bird-shit.)

It really is, and it's so huge too...
A little bit over-whelming when you're there - you just don't know where to start!

Thank you :)

there's something similar in the town where i live
i guess these are the kind of places where every photographer has to go, almost one time (:

Yeah, abandoned places are great to visit. It's an interesting feeling being in such a big but empty building.
And yes, they are ideal photo locations! (apart from the little problem of getting in...) Hehe :D

Wow! I love this! The whole concept is amazing! I love how your eye will catch the graffiti first but then the look on her face is just perfect! Plus fav! wow.

Nice shot! The colors, lighting and model are all very dynamic and pleasing to the eye.

That's my favorite song by PJ Harvey, by the way...probably my favorite song by anyone. :-)

Thank you! Once I got the image to look like this (as in, once I got 3 figures into it...) I didn't actually edit the rest that much. Mainly colours really, and some contrasts. I'm glad you think it's pleasing to the eye :)

It's not my favourite of her songs, but it is definitely up there. I love the Slow Drug from Uh Huh Her, and a lot of the songs on Is This Desire... and Dry is pretty awesome too. I don't think I could pick one favourite from her songs! I think if I swung that way, Polly Jean would be my kinda lady :nod:

It's pretty simple & obvious, but I'd rather not tell... sorry!

Yeah that place is insane!
I have never seen so much graffiti in the one place.
When I go again I will definitely take some texture shots! Peeling walls here I come.
Thanks for the fav :heart:

I was surprised that we have an abandoned hospital, but apparently it's a pretty well-known spot >.<
If you ever do visit our hot & dry country, come round here and I'll show you the place :D
