Self Portrait at Ascot

Hospital Scene

Hospital Scene

At Ascot Hospital, that is. While there is no doubt that hospitals look best from the outside, if you have to go inside, this is a good place. After a long grey afternoon the clouds opened a narrow slot, letting the sun stream in.

For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

    A nice self-portrait, even if the surroundings might not be your first choice! I hope you’re OK now.

    Beautiful idea, going to a hospital is mostly not so funny, hope everything is well.

    Such a lovely perspective with so many dimensions of shape and light and shadow.

    Thanks for the comments and wishes. I am recovering well from the op (RARP) and am cautiously optimistic about the rest.
