The Green Room, likening to works from the artist M.C. Escher.

Again, the gorgeous natural colors of this destroyed factory shine through in peeling paint of "the green room". About 3 or 4 stories up, gaping holes in the crumbling concrete floor carried drops of 30 to 60 feet below. At one point, I left my tripod here to explore down some side paths. When I ran back to get it for another shot, I came less than a foot from falling through one of the smaller holes in the floor. A sobering moment.

This shot is usually paired with it's sister frame from the same shoot, "Caged" (http://500px.com/photo/28766491).
