Abandoned

There is an old abandoned school about 20 minutes from where I live and I've always wanted to go shoot some pictures of the poor thing. It's not that sad of story though; the school was just moved into a nicer, newer building a few minutes away. It's not like it became abandoned because the city didn't have enough money or children to keep it running. It is a little creepy though, and every time I looked up into a window, I expected to see some ghost child staring back at me. (I'm terrible with scary things; I've never even seen a scary movie. It's more the ghost and paranormal things than the blood and guts stuff. I started to watch The Messengers one night, but embarrassingly had to turn it off practically right after the opening scene...)

Anyways, I managed to take some pretty interesting photos with a new film camera I bought. I'm still trying to figure it out, but I feel like the fact that it was film kind of added to the old, abandoned feeling of the pictures. (Let me know if you see any strange shadowy figures...)
