Chandler Day 346: The Julius W. Pinnell School

SONY DSCThis is the schoolhouse that where the previous photo was taken and where my camera died. It really is an awesome building, though it is kind of creepy. We were’t able to get into it but the grounds still made for some good photos. There were a couple other small buildings on the property and an old playground. Hopefully we will be able to get into the building one day and hopefully I won’t lose another camera to the place.

Chandler Day 304: Happy Halloween!

DSC06345For Halloween I didn’t go out, or party or drink or whatever you do on Halloween now. I just stayed in with Hannah and we gave out candy to the kids that came to her house, which wasn’t many, because of the cold and snow. Yeah, it was kind of crazy that it snowed on Halloween this year. But it was still a fun night with ghost stories and a Halloween story.

Chandler Day 236: Parking Garages Can be Creepy

DSC04359For some reason I have always hated parking garages. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I don’t like being underground in them or because I can’t see outside or because you never know who is in them. I don’t know, they have always just freaked me out. So I always avoid parking in them. I always park on the street, even though it can be much more of a hassle. But today I decided to park in a garage as we were downtown and had to be somewhere on time. It didn’t freak me out this time. I suppose I’ve just grown out of that old fear. But they do still look creepy, which can make for a good shot.

Chandler Day 159: Doors

DSC03651Abandoned doors. Doors leading into another abandoned building. Doors that hold more secrets, more stories, more memories that will never be know. Old and forgotten doors. Left behind, slowly decaying and being overtaken by nature. I think they were part of what was an old schoolhouse. Most of the building was overgrown and decayed. What once was home to people now shelters animals and supports plants that are slowly overtaking it.

Chandler Day 157: Twin Bridge

DSC03626This bridge here is the second of the Twin Bridges in Avon and Danville. I already shot the first bridge and put it in an earlier post. Both of these bridges are supposedly haunted and have interchangeable stories. One is of a man buried alive in the concrete, the other is of a woman who dropped her baby in the creek below. Both are a little creepy looking and both are very photogenic. Tonight I was able to shoot the Avon bridge and explore the park that it’s in. It made for a fun evening and I hope to shoot more of the bridge another time.

Chandler Day 127: Fisher Hall

DSC02835So this is Fisher Hall. Well, part of it. The creepy part of Fisher Hall to be exact. There’s kind of three sections. The very old part, which has a gallery and offices, the newer part with all the classrooms and the basement which is for the art people, and which contains the creepy part. Honestly the section for the Art majors is kind of shitty but I love it. I love Fisher Hall. It’s where I spend most of my time and I have some good memories here. Some important stuff happened in this hall. And sadly it’s going to be torn down this summer. There was a fire in part of it,and now they have to tear down the whole building. It’s sad and I will really miss this weird, confusing, and kinda creepy builidng.

Chandler Day 109: Sunsets and Haunted Cabins

DSC02562Tonight I had dinner with part of my family and I got to see Brandy.  After we finished dinner, we escaped from the house for a bit and went to find a place to shoot the sunset. We shot in a few old barns and watched the sun turn into a perfect ball of orange fire and fall below the horizon. Then we found an abandoned log cabin in a woods and of course we had to check it out. We walked back to it and started shooting, though we both got a very eerie feeling from the house. It was a short time shooting, but fun.
