EERIE images have revealed a haunted abandoned manor house where the photographer felt like he was being watched.
The haunting pictures show the interior of the house which looks like it has barely been touched since it was abandoned.
Other spooky shots show the huge number of portrait photographs and paintings that adorn the walls and may explain the feeling of being watched.
The creepy photographs were taken in an abandoned house near Liege, Belgium, known as the Manor of Portraits by urban explorer Sascha Jung (44) from Voerde, Germany.
“When I entered the house, it seemed to me that I was going back to the past 200 years,” he said.
“The atmosphere in the building was a bit apprehensive and you had the feeling of being observed.
“Here and there I heard noises from the neighbouring rooms. I thought it was someone else in the house but there was no one.
“Maybe it was mice or the old house that produced noise from wood.”
Mr Jung, who took the photographs with a Canon Eod 70D, wants to showcase the beautiful places that the world has forgotten about.
“I want to show the people with the photos what there are for abandoned, fascinating places in the world that they have long forgotten or do not even know they exist,” he explained.
“It is sometimes frightening what is left behind when a person dies or buildings are simply left to themselves.
“My favourite thing about this house was the many beautiful painted portraits on the walls, the old family photos on the wardrobes and the fireplace and the many old antique furniture, which today are priceless.”
Urban exploration is also an adventure, which Mr Jung loves.
“It is always an adventure to take such photos,” he added.
“The preparation for the tour, the drive there, then you are there and do not know if the long journey paid off.
“Whether you are ever coming in and when you are in, what is expected. Whether it is worse with police, security, the owner or attentive neighbours.
“The smell and the atmosphere in such places. The silence and, last but not least, the great pictures that finally come to life.”
