I like compositions like this…makes me wonder about the place and who may have lived there. Nicely done.

I am very hard on myself when it comes to critiquing my work, and I’m always striving to improve what I do, so this could well be a part of that. I don’t ever want to get stale and predictable, and hope that I will continue to grow as a creative photographer and artist 🙂

This is a wonderful composition nonetheless: the play of shapes between the lampshade and the commode seat in the centre is really effective.

What you say did make me wonder if you’re simply coming to the end of one creative cycle of work on these textured urbex images, and are experiencing that in-between place of gloom & dissatisfaction that’s part of growing as an artist: which you come out of feeling inspired again and ready for fresh creative challenges.

Whatever’s going on, it’s always a pleasure to see your work, and I know you’ll keep going, keep growing, and keep becoming an even more brilliant photographer than you already are. XX

Expect photos of dead things and gravestones any day now!

But seriously, thank you for your encouragement – I really do appreciate it, and it helps me to feel slightly less down on myself than I was before 🙂

It’s almost like my photography matches my mood – bright colorful flowers when things are going well, dark, abandoned urbex when it’s not.

Your work from what I have seen so far (the close up of the letters and this shot) is beautiful. I hope you get out of your gloom soon and feel great about what you do, because it is very, very good. And don’t feel bad if you post what seems like the same “trend” in images. If it fits your mood, then I’d say go for it! 🙂
