A year ago, I visited the most amazing forgotten school. Last week I went back for another visit.
Out of all the places I have photographed, this has remained one of my favorites. I have wanted to go back since about an hour after I got home from my last visit (you can read about my last visit here and here).
Rumor is that her days are numbered so I knew needed to make a trip back immediately. I could see the difference a year made, especially in this picture.
Even in her forgotten state with broken windows and collapsed walls and floors, there is this magical moment as you arrive when you see this beautiful building in the distance. As we got close, my heart started racing...this building really is still magical and beautiful. If I could go back in time and see it in its prime, I would in a heartbeat. I stand outside and study it, and imagine what it was like 40, 50, 60 years ago.
There are many broken windows, missing doors, boarded doors and windows, and yet these amazing details still exist. I am a bit obsessed with the windows.
If you look through the window on the left, in the photo below, you can see light from places where the roof is collapsing.
Can you believe this was an unsuccessful hotel? I wish I could have been a guest here 100+ years ago.
This is one of my favorite photos from the day. While the opposite side of the building is massive and beautiful and captivating, this side has details and forgotten beauty that can not be overlooked.
This is only the beginning of the photos from this trip, so keep watching for another blog post on this amazing forgotten place.
