I’ve been working on a photo essay of Dorthea Dix Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina, previously known as the “North Carolina Insane Hospital.” It’s abandoned now and as it sits on beautiful acreage the State is going to turn into a park after they bulldoze all the buildings (just one of the travesties visited upon the mentally ill in North Carolina, but that’s a sermon for another day).

Anyway, my dog Buddy has been accompanying me on some of my recent photo rounds, and every now and then he sneaks into a photo.
