These photos are from an adventure that was done when out of lockdown. It is from another abandoned building we found. The images never quite capture the beauty and sadness that is there when you are in the space.
As always, whenever I visit these amazing treasures, I try to not disturb anything. We are very respectful of the place and those who came before us. They are not our things or our place to be there so I see these trips more as a way of documenting something that had a life and use before we were there.
Did you enjoy looking at these images of the abandoned school? Being in these spaces is a very humbling experience. So many questions. Who came before us? How did they spend their time? Why did this beautiful building get abandoned? What stories does this place have?
