This is beautiful! Have you thought of offering this for sale as a puzzle? I think it would make a nice one!

fading chant, where once well crafted
linger near the rafters sleeping
shelter storm, in random places
none but wing or paw now pass

I love your work and I love the way you describe every picture as "...somewhere in Europe". Does that mean you can't remember where you took the photos?

Your photos are so amazing. Its heart breaking to see these beautiful abandon places. It gives you a very lonely and sorrow feeling and a wonder to know what went on in these places and why they left them. Do you know old this church is?

Incredible the amount of work and money they would sink into it and then walk away (if they in fact did leave voluntarily).

ooh..looks like one of the locations for Assassin's Creed 2. Nice shot. The lighting is so warm and comforting, despite the decay of the building.

The lighting and composition are very well thought out.
Before I read the description I didn't realize it was a photograph. I thought perhaps it was a painting or cgi.
I thought that because it is almost too perfect too be real.
It must have taken a long time to wait for the light and shadow to be just so.
Do you do any post work on your images?
Do you use any special film or lenses?
I suppose there is a faq somewhere than answers these questions.

this is absolutely beautiful!!! It's also very helpful for perspective studying!!! The most amazing thing about this picture, in my opinion, is that it resembles a drawing.... :D
