A question I have about many of your pictures, this one included: how much of what we see in the photograph is what is actually there, and how much of it comes from post processing? Pictures such as this one seem to have a "grittiness" that would be unattainable in real life - an element that goes beyond simple age and weathering.
I've used an "old scratched photo texture" on top of some of my photos like "The Morning After", "They choose the path where no one goes" [link] and "Storytime" [link] . I see it like printing the photo on a certain kind of canvas. I don't add any objects in the photo in post processing. The door in this photo "The Morning After" looks like that also in real life. (For example in "Russian Steampunk" [link] , "Welcome Home" [link] or "Ils" [link] I didn't use any textures, although it may seem like it.)
