I went to Northern State Hospital (NSH) after work today, let’s get the reason why I went there out of the way. I started a macro blog (>>Macro Aberration<<) back in March and have only posted two images since (the second being…yesterday)! I decided last night to start posting there again (I just love macros)! Anyway, the idea was to post a macro shot here and providing you a link. Mind you, today’s image over there will be the same as this one… 😛 >>Macro Aberration<<
On to the REAL story!
I only took 9 images today. Nine, IX, Sanga, Negen, Neuf…Nine! While I love to take my time, study what I am shooting, check out different angles, what does the subject look like if I take a step to the right (and do the time warp)? Nine, it’s SO not like me. I got to NSH late today, it was getting dark. Ever been to a place that’s found to be haunted by Ghost Hunters when it’s getting dark? I should have taken the hint when there was NO ONE to be seen or heard, no cars, no dogs barking in the background, no crickets…was really creepy quiet. After I took a few shots of this little creek, I decided to head into this one cluster of buildings (it’s the closest one to the creek) to get a macro shot as I knew the building, it’s the old bakery. There’s tables all over the place with cool things just kicking it! When I go out shooting by myself, I always listen to my Zune (MP3 player). When I entered the building, I got this really…foreboding feeling, turn around David, go back to the creek! Did I? Nope, I just took my headphones off, turned off my Zune and proceeded to setup the shot. I was ready. It was SUPER quiet. Ever have someone slightly run a few fingers on the top of your head, barely touching your scalp? THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED, I looked up immediately (okay, I lie, I freaking JUMPED) and saw this dark shadow disappear near the window. I heard nothing, not a peep, not a flap or a tweet. I keep trying to rationalize this by thinking it was just a bird…but there were no birds in there, there was no sound…
Has this happened before? Not to this extent! Both Jolene and I have had…”odd” things happen in this cluster of buildings before. Jolene’s run-in happened almost a year ago today, check it out here -> Whistle In The Dark
Will I go back by myself? Hell ya, I love that place too much not to (hard headed I suppose)! 🙂 Sorry for the lengthy post, I just had to share….enjoy…
