Thursday’s Special: Traces of the Past Y2-02

This week, Paula is asking us for Traces of the Past….anyone who follows this blog will know I have a fondness for the past, and abandonment and decay. Sadly, sometimes I can’t get to see stuff I would like to, before it has been ‘tidied up’.

This was a case in point- a somewhat tidied up Operating theatre in one of the forts of the ill-fated Maginot Line… luckily for me, not too tidied up, and when I played about in post processing, it revealed more than I thought in terms of texture etc – here we go for time travel back to the 1930s

  1. Very Steampunk, which I love.

  2. Makes me imagine the horrors of being wounded, and lying on that table. (((Shiver)))
    Great stuff, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Not somewhere I’d have like to be operated on Sue. I like what you’ve done with the photo!

  4. Oh Yikes!! The operating room of my worst nightmares! 😯

  5. Really special and such a great picture.

  6. Looks pretty ominous to me, Sue. Well done.

  7. OMG those stirrups take me back to the birth of my first-born! Fortunately the rest of the room was somewhat more clinical.

  8. I find this photo dreadfully sad Sue!

  9. Not only texture but light too. You’ve processed it wonderfully.

  10. Wow! You did a fantastic job with this one, Sue. 10 stars for originality, subject and the feel. Impressive!

  12. Such a sad time and how terrible to be operated on back then in those conditions.

  13. Positively medieval in appearance – what horrors this room must have contained, it makes my blood run cold.

  14. Fabulous shot Sue! It looks like the ideal place for the start of a scary movie!
