will never be filled
we will wait

Yes we should hun, we really should. These are, as usual, beautiful and thoughtful images. I don’t use the computer very often, which is a shame because I miss seeing photos in gallery format. They look really good in this format as a collage of sorts.
Thank you DJ, really appreciate that. I am still surprised by how many places there are like this here in Brüssel. I would have expected more care to have been taken…
It’s a fast-paced world, so much stays overlooked 😦
How true, and if its not digitised is it real?
OH! Well now, that is a question!
Brilliant post-processing. Fantastic gallery!
Thank you Cardinal! A fascinating if morbid subject…
Morbid is cool.
I have come to look forward to these walks, Andy. If only to figure out ‘how do we care more?’ A shame…
Thank you for walking with me again Lois.
I think it sad that these places have been allowed to fall so badly into disrepair…
We most definitely should. I read once that a research showed that terminal patients regretted the most the time they didn’t spend with loved ones and things they wished and had never done.
So we should waste no time.
As always you bring superlative images and the perfect choice of words. Thanks Andy. Have a good week.
Thank you Lucile for your kind words and also for the insight, you are of course right, and I have spent too much time wasting time already…I wish you a good week too!
Wonderful work, Andy.
Thank you Malin, much appreciated!

Nous devrions nous rappeler plus?
Thank you, although the subject was grim and uncared for in parts..
Great gallery, sent a real shiver down my spine yet intriguing, hard to pull my eyes away x
Thank you, that is exactly how I felt during the shoot, there was one statue I hardly dared turn my back on…
hah, almost enticing to go back again for the adrenalin rush
Beutifull scene..I love greay in yours pictures 🙂 🙂
Thank you Mz R!
