…as we continuously trespass at Northern State Hospital. Also forgive me for my excessive use of ellipses. I can’t stop using them…
In the past weeks, my group of photo walk buddies has been focusing attention on the grounds of Northern State Hospital – but not the actual hospital part. We’ve been exploring the old barns and random buildings on the east side of the property. Technically, we are not trespassing there. From what I understand, Starbucks funded a project to turn the “east side” into a Frisbee golf course which weaves throughout these old decrepit buildings, beginning in a hay field. A tad bizarre yes, but considering the history it seems to make sense.
Anyway, today I decided to walk around on the hospital grounds and take pictures over on the west side where I would actually be trespassing. My plan was to take pictures until someone asked me to leave, but this never happened. Apparently a thirty something white woman wandering around with a camera isn’t nefarious enough to warrant an expulsion from the property. Maybe it’s just that no one really cares. Regardless, I think I snapped a few good shots. Visit my gallery on Smug Mug for more photos.
