One of the few items actaully left in the asylum are the baths. Being old and iron or steel they must be heavy and cumbersome for the contractors to remove so are no doubt left for the wrecking ball to deal with.

This was a small bathroom off of one of the wards, like all the rest of the windows, the frame was removed, left open to the elements the walls were mouldy and the bath really grimy.

This was a challenge to frame, with the door tight behind we I really had to squeeze in to get everything just how I wanted it, trying to get the whole back wall and the strip light was fairly tough. I got there in the end though. I’m still learning about my Sigma 8-16 and what it can do, but enjoying doing so, the wide angle distortion is sometimes a treat, others a curse!
