This afternoon I checked out two abandoned hospitals. The first was a state hospital for the insane and turns out it was absolutely not abandoned! It was a lovely campus full of people where pictures could obviously not be taken.
The second was just a regular hospital, I believe I may have been in the nursing home section. I shot 5 rolls of black and white film throughout the desolated floors. This place was cool, but did not have the feeling of rapid exodus that is so intriguing. I did notice a tray all set up still with 5 used tea bags dangling in and around the mug, so surreal. I also found blueprints from the 50’s sopping wet outside. As I walked up to the second building, two teenage girls came from the opposite direction. They, too, we’re filming in there. I admit, I felt better knowing someone was in there with me even if it was only high school girls! When they left I felt a panic but got another 50 good shots before I left. I can’t wait to get to the school on Monday and develop these rolls.
