  1. Or a huge challenge. The general contractor would need to work here first.

  2. An intriguing interior with lots of potential. Is it a house?

  3. Wow very cool. I wouldn't know where to begin. Is that the barn you've been showing?

  4. The views are all very well as photographs (picturesque, appealing, mysterious) but don't as me to do any DIY thank you!

  5. Reminds me of a house with paranormal activity. Spooky. The black and white gives this quite the eerie feel, I think. Good one!

  6. Actually that arched door is pretty interesting although that would be a challenging remodel. I have seen that sort of thing advertised as a "handyman's dream" meaning it requires a lot of work.

  7. Great shots! I really like how you show the rustic elements and the decaying paint on the walls. Great black and white. Beautiful.

  8. The top shot has the elements you want, light, shadows, textures; maybe they should leave he place and hire it out to b&w photographers.

  11. I agree : not a nightmare, a challenge! I love the first picture, with this long line of perspective..Strange that you could enter the place...

  13. Wow James, you have a real affinity for black and white photography. These are really beautiful. I recently found out about people called "Urban Explorers" that are cropping up in cities around the globe. They enter old abandoned sites, photograph them, and research the history of the site. They are quite daring but it can be dangerous. So be careful out there!

    I find these photos quite lovely. They just don't build em like that anymore. It's a shame.

  14. Light to come in through a window is very dazzling.
    The light emphasizes darkness.

  15. James, I saw your comment somewhere else about this place. Isn't it supposed to be one of the most "haunted" locations in the US?
    Not that I believe in that stuff.......much

  16. might be a decorators nightmare but it certainly made for a lovely photograph--so interesting with all it's textures. A lot of life must have been lived in this room.

  18. I was very intrigued by the doorways and the ornate woodwork. What a job it would be to renovate this but I bet it would be a gorgeous home after.

  22. It's so great to found these fine monochrome photoworks, James.
    A dynamic development of the photographic individual.
