At first it looks playful then there are title and explanation of the location and then the feeling changes.....

What a powerful image this makes . . we cannot help our mind creating a sad story to go with it.

Really you found this in the asylum? I think it was a very interesting visit (and slightly terrifying). I'm sure it's a very appealing and thrilling place.

A superb shot !
