This was not my first choice, but its grown on me, as I consider the discarded suitcase as a symbol of the act of departure...perhaps of abandonment? After all, it was in an abandoned building...
Thank you for your consideration.
Jerry

nicely done Jerry, it has a very vintage feel to it too, that lends to the abandoned side of things. Well done.

If that does not say abandonment nothing does. Nice shot.

Thanks, Norm, Mark; the sepia tones came from adding red and yellow to a B&W version in PS Elements...an experiment, at best...

The suitcase with its odd assortment of paraphernalia and the mattress well worn adds a near Tennessee Williams effect.

Ye Gods! Another literary photographer!
I'll bet we're all renaissance men/women around here...

Thanks, Rick; I shot through a broken window, or I would have been tempted to "arrange" things, probably spoiling it in the process...

This image works very well for me and I really like the toning you have added to the image.
