Oh wow, nice photos! I don't know if any of the buildings in Kings Park still have some stuff in there. I've seen inside photos in some website. I like the bowling alley.

The photo with the girl (Rana) gives me the creeps for a second there. :lol:

The wooden wheel chair is a classic.

Gemini, not to steal the other guys thread, but every time I go back to your images, they make me feel something different. The first time (few months ago maybe) I remember being fascinated by their intensity and emotion. Another time they made me feel horribly sick to my stomach. Today they made me feel like I was doing something wrong, and I had to hurry or someone would catch me.

True art makes you feel something, even if its uncomfortable. Sometimes, especially if its uncomfortable.

Thank you Lynne,

Im sorry I don't take them to make people feel sick. Just trying to capute the memories left behind and show what it must have been like to be in a place like this.

no apology, that's what art's supposed to do! It must have felt awful to be in a place like that, so I think you've captured that.

I agree as well! How I would love it if my photos brings out emotions. That is what makes a great photograph; to make people bring back memories, make them smile, sad or even angry.

A great photograph has to tell a story or stimulate people's minds, give ideas and feedback.

Anybody can take photos of leaves, sky, buildings and other things but it has to go beyond the object itself.

Just my .02 cents.

psilver, didn't mean to leave you out, your original images are very good, as well! The yellowish cast in the first one especially makes me feel like i'm leafing through an old book, I can almost smell the mustiness!

Thanks urbanaries. I finally got my refurbished D50 today. It didn't go smoothly but looks like it's okay now. My first few tests were kinda frustrating. I was suddenly got overwhelmed with so many controls but I'm slowly "taming the wild beast".:evil: Unfortunately, it gave me a big headache tonight.
