Geez, this one is overwhelming... I love the emotion immediately out of it because of the original and impressive framing and that boy prisoner/framed in the window. Please, tell me, is that a real shot/set or a "montage" and you put the boy afterwards ?.... Like out of a movie - once more, I could write a story beginning with this powerful image................... Great shot & shock*

Is the building in fact the institution it looks and feels like?

@grouser: It is an old abandoned hotel :)

The change of scale and perspective is really interesting... it makes me feel a bit dizzy but still admirative ! ;-)

Ghostly, strange, even supernatural kind of image, it's wonderful and perplexing.
