I Spy

This is how I came to find the apples in the Bob for Apples post the other day.

The door to this building barricaded by roofing debris, I could only peer through the window (from this side, impossible to enter).   After examining the wreckage, I happened to spy these apples laying on the ground.  Suddenly, I heard a “plop” and saw a small splash in the old sink.  This prompted me to find another point of entry.  There had to be some cool shot just waiting to be discovered…

I circled the building and found the culprit…which also happened to be blocking a few windows.  Still, impossible to safely enter.

But then I noticed one window, whose slimy sill destroyed my jeans for the day as I slid through.  I found a second sink and even more apples. 

Walking through the rain, breaking into old abandoned buildings, and finding treasure (albeit ordinary and worthless to anyone but me), made me feel like a kid again for a little while.  Isn’t it amazing how different life can look through a view finder?

      Thank you…I’m trying to get permission to go into the actual hospital next. But, apparently that’s hard to get. Keeping my fingers crossed!

      Thank you! This location (Northern State Hospital grounds) is a photographer’s heaven.

  3. Jolene, love the photo of the toppled sink! Have I ever mention how I like the stories you have with the photos? They compliment each other very well (I suck at writing, unless it’s a manual or something)! 😀
