I went to a derelict asylum and took photographs, linking to the project I am working on but also for general interest. I must point out that I am not a photographer, I just use these images to record. With the many textures and colours I found plenty of inspiration.
|Inside one building which had been a theatre. There was a stage at the back.|
|Side view of Theatre Hall.|
|Looking up at the roof. The light coming through the roof was beautiful, lighting the black marks on the wall.|
|The wind was blowing through the window, causing the curtain to flutter. All you could hear was the curtain flapping against the window in the other wise quiet building.|
|The remainder of a stage curtain, which would have been a rich red velvet. Faded and torn fabric is what I tend to use in my work.|
|The black is from the fire damage, the black marks running down the wall are another favourite image.|
|Another section of the building, I have a huge soft spot for rusty metal.|
|Close up of burnt wood.|
|Another random text, which could be symbolic of the place or a persons state of mind!|
I would like to make another visit to the building, but I think the developers are about to bull doze the area. Such a shame another bit of history is removed.
