Default Abandoned Mental Institution

Title says it all... Built in the early 1900s, now being torn down, building by building, for a subdivision...

Nice pics, Lopix. I think you have some great raw-material in there.
You should consider doind some post-processing in them to enhance the atmosphere. (IMO)
