    Okay i must confess i think you have a thing for parking lots and am not judging anyway. Where are the clowns is it a metaphor or something coz am not really getting it.

    This looks like some kind of abandoned warehouse. I hope the wires on the floor aren’t dangerous.

    I think the light was a bit too low here. But awesome shot nonetheless.

    I can’t help but notice that this picture is very similar to the one used as the backdrop for your blog. Very impressive indeed.

    This place is huge. I can think of so many ways that I could repurpose it for something else.

    There’s some beauty to this photo. I can’t quite pinpoint it but maybe it could be the vastness it depicts.

    This is a nice photo though it different from what the caption says. I sure had it good viewing this.

    Read your reply to miakayuuki2012 a moment ago, after skimming through the comments a bit. Does that quote of yours come from the song “Send In The Clowns”?

    I also looked up the song in question. The first version I found on YouTube was sung by Judy Collins, and she sung it quite beautifully.

    The next one was sung by Glynis Johns, and there was a bit of cynicism in the initial part of her version, since it was part of a recreated scene from the play, “A Little Night Music”.

    Fitting, considering that she was the one who originally sung it, and the one that the song was composed for (by Stephen Joshua Sondheim).

    In some ways, us human beings tend to act like clowns (fools, more accurately) on many occasions. Searching for life’s meaning, and something far better than we usually expect, we often wreck havoc in the process, even when our intentions are good.

    Coming back to the photo, I guess that at one point, the place used to be vibrant with life, but as time progressed, the souls that once inhabited it have now moved on to other places.

    So, where are the clowns, indeed? Will we have to wait until next year?

    *grins slightly…*

    Perhaps, they may never be here.

    I was going to giggle at the clowns but unfortunately no clowns in there. I like the hall all the same. You capture it well.

    For an abandoned building this looks like a really well preserved room. And thinking about that old song – hmm, the columns and walls are sure painted to mimic the clouds floating in midair. Where are the clowns indeed?

    This room is lacking excitement maybe because there aren’t enough clowns. I bet clowns could jazz it up and add some more colour. Thanks for the pic!

    Good shoot, I’m glad that there are no clowns there because I’d feel terrified.

    Having a great big place without a clown in it very beatiful. Sometimes, it drives the nuts out of me when seeing a clown.

    Where are they indeed? I do not know who puts captions in these shots but at times they are weird. In this case, there are no clowns so what gives? Anyway good shot as always at least.

      My captions and titles are generally obscure references of long forgotten and/or obscure riddles and rhymes.

    The windows here are humongous. Begs the question what this hall was ever used for.

    This should be turned into a parking of some kind. I think it’s very much usable.

    This is such a big hall. I wonder what it was used for.

    Clearly there are no clowns anywhere to be seen. It’s a very empty hall.

    A beautiful picture with a nice view! Well, I believe the clowns ain’t standing rather a sketch on the floor.
