What grabs me first is that almost every way out is closed. The windows, elevator but, light is the only thing that can pass thru. I can't tell if the sun is rising or falling but falling would fit perfectly because the decay of light and the building would be in parallel.
A well composed shot,lots of depth. My only criticism would be the light coming thru the windows on the right behind the elevator should be darkened, they keep drawing my eyes away from the rest of the image. But I do like this very much.
Most urban decay photos carry the same theme, each beautiful and standing on its own for the unique location, but this one stands apart with a subtle variation:
We strive for the destination, a place built in our minds for eternity, but it decays and we outgrow it or forget it, but once in a while the journey itself remains strong, and though aged is there still, ready to carry us again on a voyage that shapes us and becomes a part of us.
The elevator retains elegance and even the rust enhances its glory, reminding us that we can choose to go up or down in life.
