FACT: Alexandria Jimi Lee was too distracted by the peeling wall paint to be creeped out by the fact that she was walking around in an abandoned asylum.

Or maybe it was because the building wasn’t actually that creepy in the first place. 

I was recently clearing out some pictures out of my photo library when I happened to stumble across this funny album. These pictures are from a few years back during winter break my first year of college. Everyone was back for the holidays and my friend’s photography project was a good excuse to wrangle our group together. Apparently, there was an abandoned building not too far away that made for some great photos, so off we went on a cold but sunny January morning.

This particular abandoned building was previously an asylum but now just sits on a college campus next to a puppetry school. Sounds creepy right? Well maybe it would’ve been scarier if we went at night. In reality, it was just a really old building that was falling apart. Dust and asbestos were more of a worry than any vengeful spirits. But I did find out later that this place was featured on Syfy’s Paranormal Witness.

While my friend was working on her project, I snapped some photos of my own. Old decrepit buildings really do make for interesting photographs and I found myself particularly fascinated by the texture of the walls. The way the paint was peeling off almost made them look like tree bark.

And then us fooling around with light photography in the basement:

All in all, it was a fun trip with no unexplained occurrences, which I am totally fine with.
