Exactly what it says on the label. Photos, thoughts, rambling discourse. No HDR, PhotoSlop, or cell phone shots of what I had for breakfast.

All photography appearing on this blog is my own; all re-blogs are of my own work from other pages.

Several years before the demolition of Taunton State Hospital, an elegant 1850s vintage Kirkbride-plan asylum in Massachusetts, I captured this chair in a darkened patient room from the hallway.  The low lighting in the room, combined with the uneven reciprocity failure of Fuji NPH film, gave the room an interesting purple-blue cast.  When I returned a few months later to attempt to get a better version of this shot, someone had moved the chair.  In 2009, TSH was unceremoniously demolished to make way for a vacant lot.
