Trip to the Nursing Home

Very sad place.

I was intrigued by all of the depressing imagery around the place.
lynnsgallery2 You captured the feel of the nursing home the way it truly is. I really like #7 nicely done.

Iwanowski Excellent set. I used to work in a nursing home, images 1,2,5,6,7 get my strongest votes. Great work.

stormfish this is a very respectful approach to the topic. thank you for that... unusual for a photographer.

longimanus I think it looks sad when looked at with a young eye... sad because we worry ending up there. Its part of life and thanks god there are places like that.

dgarun Thanks a lot to you for this shots, and in my first attempt I was going to ask you, despite of thousands beautiful places in this world why you had go to a Nursing Home to take these sad shots, that very moment I show the comment of longimanus, and it open my eyes towards a new horizon. Towards a new and absolute thinking.
Thanks a lot to you both.

dgarun . . . and in my personal opinion, the saddest shot of this series is the 3rd one.
This shot was shaked me from the root. . .

Madoc Your honesty and your respect for those people shows here.
All very emotional to me, especially #6. I don't really know why...the door, the light...
Strong post, Makai.

redro Old age is what it's sad anywhere and anyway, and the place reflects the isolation and the loneliness of those persons despite of the care they get....
redro · 2008-12-18: 19:30
????? Those places usually make me feel really sad too

pollak this images are so strange. they remind me of that movie "the savages", same hard suffocating atmosphere. #7 shows exactly this feeling. powerlessness

pluvieux Love the first and the last. Great lighting!
