[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
OK, I'm gonna give this treklens site a go. I've been using trekearth, but i've a whole bunch of photos which don't belong there.

This photo is from a former leper colony in Busan, South Korea from maybe 30 years ago.
The leper colony closed down and people moved in, but left the place recently in pursuit of city jobs.

When i went, the place was deserted with many houses either empty or ruined. The place was recently torn down and is being redeveloped.

Very good view...How many others saw this view? Good POV, maybe a little lighter around the frame to see a bit of the frame detail. I wonder what it would look like?

Still very good POV and Composition

Great shot Will, the islnd out there looks very mysterious beacause of all the fog and dirty window.
The black all around the window make the window and the things outside stand out .great picture.:):)

Depressing view. Lepers was a reality in many countries not so many years ago. I hope it will be gone everywhere soon, but I am not so sure. It seems that the aid to African countries has disappear to a few people's pockets, and that is very sad.
