This piece is very, very beautiful.
I'm a fan of urbex myself and this might be one of the most stunning pictures that I've ever seen.
When people ask me why I love abandoned and decayed stuff, I'll show them this picture, next time. You really captured all the alternative beauty of this theme, it looks like a scenery from a dream. The light is beautiful, as well the atmosphere you created. Even tough urban decay is a sad and a "desperate" beauty, it looks so peaceful and majestic.
This represents why people do urban exploration so much. Is to find this type of thing. What a marvelous location.
What do you think?

I like this photo a lot... But that piano looks really out of place. Enough to bother me..... If you had the chance I would have used a hammer and broke the chairs around it. It almost looks photoshopped in. That and it has 0 shadows near the the piano. I love that one seat down. Out of all the seats it is just that one. Also I would have like to see a vignette and give it a vintage look. And maybe run around and make the dust fly everywhere and it would would show the light coming in near the windows. But I lOVE this photo and the impact! Just LOVE it!!!

Why can't there be amazing places like this in America?! I've never even seen anything close to this, let alone got to explore it like you! The closest thing to your places I've ever found was an abandoned outhouse.

I love your photographs. I am an artist and a writer of poems. I use some of my photographer friends photos (via photoshop) to add verse and or characters (not for sale) fto share with them. Might I use a couple of yours ...with total credit given onthe piece to the photographer. Thank you, Richard (usersmind)

At first I wondered why the piano was on the chairs - and then I had the thought ... it's as if time has thrown it there in anguish at the music being lost. Beautifully sad.

You have to wonder who would bother moving that incredibly heavy piano to be on top of those seats....

It Really Tells You How Wonderful This Place Is.....And The Final Performance Before It Was Abandoned Must Be As Exquisite And Beautiful As The Picture Itself.

Excellent Job In Capturing The Moment Of Silence In This Once Bustling And Crowded Theatre.

the only shadows it casts are covered by the piano itself. it's not photoshopped.

I really love the atmosphere you're generating through each photograph you take. O_O

It is just stunning! Amazingly, we can almost feel the damaged floor under our feet and smell the dusty air.

I am totally transported by your art! :hug:

Thanks for making me 'go' to all those spectacular places!
