Well Done. The effect of the B&W works well to tell this story.

They look nice! I love stuff from abandoned places. The only question I have is what state are you in?

The sink is the favoruite one for me out of the lot, but they're all nice. Good work!

Thanks guys for the comments. illegally alive, i'm up in canada, over on the far east in Newfoundland.
The hospital it's self is one of the older original un-altered standing structures, it has been abandonned since the eraly 70's. The building i was in wasn't the coolest of the series of buildings there is the older building, from what i have heard is the coolest and most creepy of the three buildings. It has dentist chairs, and old stlye opperating tables still in tact. i will get some photos over there when the snow clears a bit.

The first word that came to my head when I saw these was creepy. Very good job, specially with the toilet.
May I ask how did you use your flash?
6th of February 2005 (Sun), 12:36
well i'm glad the creepy feel came through like i was aiming for. I didn't use any flash for those shots they were all shot with a 2-15 second exposure time and what i wanted highlighted in the picture i would aim my flashlight at. I found it gave a really cool feel, giving almost a circular frame.

My vote is for the radiator shot.
Great concept...excellent execution.

Nice work. The whole series is excellent. Kinda wish the last one was a bit darker to match the mood of he others.

the sink and the radiator get my vote :cool:

Love 'em... but you probably wouldn't catch me in that building (I almost said catch me dead... but I think that would've been too much of a pun)

WOW....I love stuff like that but I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to going into abandonned things to take pictures :oops: Great job the heater. I like how you can see all the texture on the wall. using a flashlight was very cool. Great job and I can't wait to see more of your work like this!!!!

Thanks everyone!! I was in there a few weeks back, i was with two of my buddies ( i generally like having people go into these places with me, just in case something happens like a floor collapses or i hurt myself, there is someone to go get help..
I will be heading back into the other part of that building, which is the older building in a week or so, there are very creepy things in this one, like an old dentist chair and old style opperating tables, and an ancient morgue. it should make for some dark creepy shots. If anyone has any suggestions as how to shoot in these conditions send em this way. I am going to stick to the flashlight illumination but i would also like some other styles to try out.

Paul, excellent series. The choosing of B&W is perfect to transmit what you probably wanted to. Every shot is terrific but my favourite is #2. What gear did you use?
14th of February 2005 (Mon), 14:25
I used a canon a75 with the f at around 2.8 and between 1-15 second exposures with the iso at 50
i used a tripod and for lightinf i used a flash light..

Nice and creepy. How did you "gain access" to such a unique site?
14th of February 2005 (Mon), 19:42
Reminded me of the game Hafe-Life 2.
I enjoyed viewing the pictures u posted. Very creative. A good sense of emotion and mood was estalished in your pictures which is sometimes hard to capture, nice use of lighting. also..

Thanks henry, i thought that the use of the flashlight would give it a mysterious feel, and i think it did.
as for access it was quite easy, the building is closed down but no one watches over it, i simply walked right on in through the basement window that had been broken out and not borded up. there is actually not one no tresspassing sign on the entire property

I'm sad to hear you're in Canada... I was really hoping it was Mass. they look like some abandoned asylums i've been in. Creepy is right!
Keep it up, and watch out for cops, bums, and bad floors!
p.s. if you haven't seen this site I highly recommend it:
www.actionsquad.org <-Max Action is a great writer and they've had some close calls!
one of the best: http://www.actionsquad.org/stahl.htm
p.p.s. i've no affiliation w/ the site, just a fan of the genre :p

The sink is my fav, the radiator would be next. Great shots.

Nice job Paul, I like them all, but if I had to choose just one, my nod goes to the "Ghost" in the chair shot. ;)
