A few friends and myself went up north this weekend to the abandoned Bennett School for Girls. Here are a few pics of the trip.

WOW!
On EVERY one!
I especially like the chair under the window, and of course, #7 and #8...

Really something, those are ALL wall hangers.

I don't say, "WOW!" often either...:)

"Wow" is right Awesome composition, exposure...color etc. I found myself staring at each shot much longer than I have at any other shots on this site in some time. Great job! And it looks like it would have been a blast to shoot there!

Directions and how do you get in...:p


You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away and know when to run
You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealing's done

Thanks guys! I can post a few more pics from this trip if you'd like, or just check em out on flickr.

Not to be rude, but in the urban exploring community, we try not to publicly give out information on exact locations and how to enter, to prohibit the vandalism of abandoned buildings. If you go to flickr, you'll see the town location of it in the description and some quick google searches can get you the exact address. As for entering, I saw multiple ways to get in, so it wouldnt be a problem. Security and cops are another issue though, as this hobby of mine is not exactly legal.

Uh, then why are you giving out the name of the school? It took all of 3 seconds to find this with Google's help.

Yes, with my 50mm for the textures and my 10-20mm for most of the recent pictures.

crashthenet44, I just don't want to publicly post the location or town here on the board or how to get inside it. But you can go off the board and easily find it.

Indeed. It's unneeded and unwelcome attention.

I find it's better to shoot with permission on private property...

Excellent series! There's just something about abandoned buildings that are so interesting and you captured it beautifully.

This is a great set. All of the photos tell stories. They have this mysterious feel into it. The photos look very sharp and its texture should be commended. Great job!

Cheers!
