Completely abandoned Sanatorium, this whole site is locked out from the outside world. It took me one hour to find an entrance to the site. Full of feral dogs running and barking at me. The whole place is scary and the atmosphere there is weird. Everything is still there untouched for decades... bloodsamples (leprose). I couldn't enter in the main buildings (crematoriun, church, surgery room,...) because of the many hungry wild dogs.

Perhaps the abandonment of this sanatorium declares a lack of need for it because the disease in no longer such a threat. What an uplifting twist imparted to this scene if so. I like the receding repetition of the chairs, columns, archways and sunlight. It's very neat and clean, which lends it a reverent atmosphere. I also like the muted colors.

excellent. maybe just a hair more grainy than necessary, though. all the same, this should do well.
