truly deserving.  i actually struggled to not also include your empty theater seats from above (i used one finalist by person as a culling method, picking is hard so much great work 😀).  that was a great point of view.  but the shadow of the wheelchair just made it so much more "empty"

have to say, you probably found the least graffiti-ed vandalised room in the whole world.

Well this was an empty medical office so it was locked and secured.  The new tenant let me in to take some photos in there before they built it out for their needs....another medical office.

The rest of the class room and school had some pretty disgusting graffiti all over the walls, i chose not to endorse it.😐

😉  well your shot was also low on graffiti, something hard to find.   i found this lovely abandoned mini golf course yesterday, but had no way of getting on angle without them in back, so now have some PS work scheduled.

as i mentioned i had 20-25 images through the first go through,  then had to invent "culling rules" to get down to 8.  this was tougher than picking my best images to Alamy from a specific subject, i also struggled between criterias as i picked a subject that wasn't obvious in a Stock environment. 😉

Oh dear....I am so sorry  - There was no criticism intended at all. I think you made great selection.

no worries,  it was actually fun.  i spent the last few days going through the process.  actually it put me in mind of a customers who had typed "empty" as KW, and got all these totally different results, and had to start thinking, "what did i mean by Empty?"
