This place has certainly had a chequered history. Good sharpness and shadow detail and well framed and composed. The minimalist color enhances the graphism & the almost n&b (b&w) look of the fg structure. Excellent balanced composition and perspective. The graffiti adds interest and mood. Tfs!

Hello Olivier. An interesting photo with an equally interesting text. These relics of the past tell a story. Also architecturally the building is worth seeing. For me, the photo has a documentary character.

yes, I like these type of abandoned subjects very much as well. They offer alot, and are often over looked.
I really like how the ceiling has that triangle with the circles at the top, and the overall composition is spot on, just perfect.
it fills up the frame nicely.
