It feels like that place lived and died only for the sake of creating that awesome scenery. If it weren't abandonned you couldn't see those awesome rust and rumble textures, if it were abandonned for too long the whole place might crumble. It's a picture of the right place at the right time, makes me think that religion is only beautifull when abandonned.
I'm sorry, I didn't actually mean that it "should" but I rather meant to voice an opinion, sorry if it sounded too "head-on" I actually like the structure, it looks lovely and has a good layout, that's why I considered that it could be neat if it were a place of knowledge xD I really didn't mean to offend if I did.-
Another beautiful picture! I love them, keep em coming. It's such a shame no one cares for these places and let's them get to this point though. There is an old train station near where I live, Beautiful brick building, more archways and flying buttresses than you can count. I can only imagine what it looked like in it's prime.
