Some more pics from when me and @imafuckingtwofacedbitch visited the old asylum in Jacksonville, IL. Those baby handprints on the window are on the inside… The building was originally a ward for the mentally insane and then became a tuberculosis hospital, it stays empty and abandoned now and many suspect it is because it is haunted. It is rumored that there are mass, unmarked graves all over the property of the patients who died there… @sixpenceee@sixpenceeeblog
Decay at its best inside an abandoned Ontario institution.
This is what gets me excited about exploring abandoned buildings, the promise of natural decay as a building slowly rots away due to the elements. Seeing all the different layers of material on the walls slowly falling off as water intrudes through the roof of the building, it’s a sight to be seen. In the upper right hand corner of the image you can see the last remaining layer, the brickwork, has slowly been exposed over the years. It also helps when you have great light to create the right mood for the scene. Ontario, Canada.
