We entered through this completely unsecured door. The gym was to the right.

The half-opened door gives a beautiful light but I think climbing this staircase would be risky. Beautiful urbex

Sad somehow. But a good documentary on what happens when people abandon buildings.

A fine capture of how the floor and the stairs have decayed to this state.

What an adventurous excursion! I'd be afraid of getting caught inside by authorities. I love how the diagonal lines bisect all of the horizontal lines here. And the light from the door is very inviting.

@Steven: Yes, you have to assume some risk to urban explore.

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

The light and how you captured it is fabulous. What an interesting place.

Some urban decay and abandonment here. Superb graphic detail with great composition and light.
