I took a quick trip to Northern State Hospital this morning to meet up with two friends. I’ve been there so many times and realized that I have never really focused on the graffiti there!
I really wanted to use this >>photo<< for today’s post but felt it would/could creep out some of the younger viewers! Almost dead centre of this photo, there’s this painted guy that has appeared throughout NSH’s grounds.
I started a new Flickr Set to place today’s and future NSH graffiti images.
Thank you, I love heading out there to capture images…so many things to see!
I really like this shot – there’s just something about it that draws me in.
Thank you JP, as I am sure this has happened to you and perhaps all the readers, this was actually the last shot of the day! Love how that happens. 😀
I really like this nostalgic picture.
Thank you very much for stopping by as well as for the comment.
Nice depth in this shot besides the texture on the exposed bricks on the wall. I do see 2 eyes hiding behind the wall..spooky 😉
I should have titled this Creepy Spooky eh? Thank you for the comment Sasi.
I personally love the “tunnel” that goes right through the building! it captivates me, and I cannot take away my eyes from it. It sort of calls to go and check: what’s there on the other side?! silly human nature : ))
And no worries about the younger audience. they probably see crazier stuff on the internet today 😛
Thanx for your wonderful comment! It does beckon you to venture through the image and imagine what’s on the other side doesn’t it…well, as long as you can get by those creepy eyes! 😛 Ohh, this wasn’t the image I was worried about, I am certain you are right about the exposure kids get these days between the internet, video games and movies but I was thinking more of the younger younger age range (like, under 5 or 6) who (let’s hope) have not been exposed. Okay, I was probably over thinking it a tad! 😛
Interesting image! great depth and texture!
Thank you Mike!
What a great photo. It makes me wonder what it was like back in the day and who still resides ;).
Well, the hospital was for…hmm, was for the sanity challenged (okay, let’s call it what it really was…a loony bin) so you might want to reconsider if anyone still does reside there! Ghost Hunters did a show on it and found it to be…haunted! Hmmm, daft ghosts…now there’s a mix that just can’t be good!
What an interesting photo. Gosh, I stopped immediately when I saw it here.(which means it caught my eye). Nice capture!
Thank you Martina, hope it was a “good” interesting! 😀
Nice shot. I really like that place. One of these sunny spring days I will be back there.
Thank you Mike. Let me know when you decide, I am always always game to head out there!
The texture of the brick really jumps out at me in the image – as do the scary little eyes peering at you from the back.
I wanted to get those creepy eyes in the shot somehow, but not make them SCREAM out at ya! 😀
