I'm curious as to why a building from 1989 is abandoned.

I like the angle. Makes it all the more imposing.

Wow! It's hard to believe someone would let an awesome building like that go abandoned! What an amazing building! I love your angle on it too. It makes it look massive!

Built in 1989 and abandoned? Or are you making a statement about our libraries in general.

Is this abandoned physically? Plus the top of the picture seems a bit crowded by the tight crop.

I find this one really striking. Love the composition, the building looks very imposing. The Tones complement the image well & suit the Challenge. Good Stuff
