Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

I do not do a picture of urbex because I do not have in my village but I really like the pictures that I can see on the sites that I visit. Bravo!

I think a gentle housewife prepared the curtains. Where is she now...

A coat of paint and change the curtains, it will be as good as new.
I like the soft light and textures you captured in this picture.

Interesting patterns in the curtains and on the walls. The state of the curtains tell a story as to what may have happened.

@Elizabeth Buckalew: I regret to inform you that as of January 1, 2019, I no longer participate in Captcha verification. I am tired of clicking stop lights, store fronts, automobiles and similar inanities in order to reply to comments when I do not require commenters on my site to go through the same torture. Thank you for your understanding, and for any comments you make that I will not be able to reply to.

the urbex is also a practice that I have done a lot in the past.
Currently I am archiving all the new finds I make. Finding places is really not difficult, which is sometimes complicated is to locate them on a map.

@yoshimiparis: if you take a photo with your cell phone (or other gps equipped camera), you can take the coordinates from the EXIF data and load them into Google Maps and have an exact location.
