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?

Love these shots from Northern State Hospital (as always) Keep ’em coming! 🙂
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!
Hey I really like your photos here, it looks like a cool place!
Thank you! This location (Northern State Hospital grounds) is a photographer’s heaven.
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)! 😀
Awww. Thank you, David! Coming from you, that means a lot. 🙂
