Inside the Ambassador

Considering just how derelict this building is, it’s remarkable to find any signs of the former occupants laying around. Yet furniture, clothes, and other items are strewn around, sometimes half-hidden in rubble. Here, a chair stands in front of a collapsed wall, exposing the staircase.

      Thank you. Eerie is definitely the feeling you get in these buildings.

  2. Love the shot of the record. It tricked my eye – for a split second I thought it was B&W with the record isolated in color. Then I saw the faded door frame paint to the right.

    Crazy, just highlights how gray the room actually was.

      I did tinker with the color a bit- I actually turned it up. Just shows how monochromatic parts of this building are.
