This photo series is of an abandoned hospital back in Massachusetts that took a little more research via the google machine to find its whereabouts, but as we narrowed in, it turns out that it was completely and easily accessible. No trespassing signs or security were to be found at any point during our explorations and so it seemed that it was just a forgotten and overgrown eyesore that no one cared about anymore. Broken glass was everywhere near the buildings as vandals had broken out almost all the windows, and they left their marks of sub-par grafitti where they could. Inside some of the buildings, moss grew upon the sludgy floors and peeling walls as rain had surely entered through said broken windows and provided a nice atmosphere for new growth. Oh, hello mold! The silence was eerie as we wandered about the grounds, yet in a weird way, the sounds of chirping birds was peaceful and somehow reassuring. We remained cautious and listened for the signs of any possible patrolling security, but all we heard were our footsteps crunching through the layers upon layers of dead fallen leaves. This was probably one of my more favorite abandoned locations to visit because the mark of man was everywhere, but dwindling rapidly as nature was taking it back over. I’d give it a few more years until some of the buildings we entered are rotting rubble on the ground.
