Still Life. by RomanyWG Still Life. by RomanyWG
One of the places I had wanted to visit for a long time. With the amount of crucifix's and religious icons in the room it could almost be renamed 'The House of God'.
Although it is definitely 'abandoned', or more correctly, 'not lived in', we had read stories of explorers having to keep quiet when the sound of keys could be heard and the footsteps of someone entering the premises. Unfortunately one of us was photographing in the hallway when the holder of the keys decided to pay a visit. Why they visit so often I do not know. There is nothing there except memories and I guess that is why they come back. I have no idea how they would explain the bedsheets being changed, the paintings being moved and the mat appearing and disappearing at regular intervals. Maybe that is why they come back, to hopefully see the Poltergeists.
Unfortunately after much screaming, not on our behalf, we apologetically left the owner with her memories. It wasn't meant to end this way, perhaps now they will make sure this shrine is more secure, only time will tell.

At the first look the place seems quite normal. Due to the composition maybe. But then you spot all kinds of details. Very interesting.

And props for having the courage to step into the home and taking the risk of getting "caught". It's always exciting to enter a building that you don't know sure of if it has an owner or even an inhabitor.

Certainly an interesting tale.

Such a strange place, it's like something after the Excorsist left and noone wanted to stay there.

Great composition and a erriely nice pic :)
