Onophotopoeia

Some times even the most mundane of scenes, the most commonplace of faces or the most trivial of objects prove to be a cradle of beauty...unleashing new meanings when looked at again and again. The true magic of photography lies in the fact that we can capture the fleeting moments to revisit them...to listen to the music that the image resounds... Onophotopoeia...

Writing on the wall...

Another one from the Central Terminal, Buffalo. While scouting around, I managed to find a stairwell with an "Off-limits and dangerous" sign guarding it. Venturing up the spooky tower of the building, I was greeted by this scene straight out of a horror flick! This is a glass door on the 4th floor with ancient papers strewn across the floor on the other side. Once important documents, these papers are all yesterday's news now. The "4" scrawled in red paint on the glass door is guaranteed to send a chill down your spine...especially in a desolate tower! Yet, the scene attracted me in an eerie way...I will never know what stories those documents had to tell...this is all that I could capture and bring back with me.

@JB and VB
As GOW points out...I adore horror movies. I guess that explains why I was attracted to the scene in the first place :)
