Finally got the chance to go out shooting again and since they are now talking about demoing one of my favourite locations, I just had to go back. Most of the shots were hand held at 1600 and cleaned up in post.

It sits on a beautiful property that juts out in to a major lake

Zen,

Do you have any photos of the outside of the building? Was this a hospital?school?

You have great pictures from inside!

Thanks

How do you guys avoid being caught? Do you try to contact the building's owner? I've always wanted to do this, but being 31 years old with a clean record and worrying about having a burglary charge just for taking pictures makes me very very hesitant.

I have a few from the outside. Not from this trip, but the past couple of years. It started out life in 1896 as a sanitorium to treat TB. It started out small, at 35 beds, then in the 1920's, major additions were done which upped the bed count to 444 and also added surgical facilities, a laboratory and private residences on the site. In 1960, it was acquired by the Ontario Department of Health as an extension of the Ontario Hospital School at Orillia. It closed in 1994.

I avoid being caught by not letting anyone see me :P You wouldn't be charged with burglary if you are taking pictures, if you get anything, it would be a trespassing ticket, which I believe is $65.

Thank you Zen. The outside looks like it is in much better shape than the inside does.

Agreed, it would only be burglary if you're caught taking things.

However, there's a lot of shades of grey here, because getting caught can be as simple as an escort to the end of the property line, a simple misdemeanor trespassing (ticket) or full incarceration.

It depends on a lot of variables.. the location you're at (military bases and govt can be problematic) or it can depend on the property owner and their desire to prosecute. It can also be escalated if you are suspected as vandalizing the property or if you're carrying a handgun, etc..

Went back to what's become my favorite place so far last weekend. First time I went I barely had an hour here due to lack of light and we actually got permission to go here :D....the first time. Last weekend I had a new friend to give us the grand tour so I finally got to see alot of the place.

Michelle,

Looks like a great place to visit, but also a very dangerous place as you know the floor is mostly gone in many places. If you step on a weak area you could go thru the floor quite easily :cry:

Yeah it was in pretty bad condition in some places. One floor in a hall had completely collapsed and it was from just time but when they abandoned it and had piled beds, chairs, desks....etc. in the entire hallway. I could see there wasn't any water damage since the ceiling was intact so I'm pretty sure the sheer weight of all the stuff they piled there caused the collapse. It's ashame :/. I wanted to get a photo of that hallway but forgot.

First time shooting an abandoned building. They're asking $150,000 for this place... it used to be a slaughter plant for cattle.
