The Woodward Ave Presbyterian Church in Detroit opened in 1911. The facility, designed in an English Gothic style, also contained classrooms for Sunday school in the rear. The church closed in 1993 and has been abandoned ever since.

Peering into a cell at the Essex County Jail, with an in tact sink and bed.
This particular cell was locked, which likely helped to ensure it stay relatively preserved. Many of the other cells in this facility were in worse shape as they have been used by the homeless for the last few decades.

The Laurelton State Village facility, the first of its kind, was designed to segregate and care for "feeble-minded" women between the ages of 16 and 45. These women were mentally ill and sent here to be looked after in the early 1920's when the facility was completed.
In 1938, over 700 women were residents and there was a waiting list another 600 women long. During their stay here, most women participated in some form of labor in the cannery, kitchen, laundry or in the fields. There were also recreational portions to the campus, as seen above.
In the late 1960's a radical change was made and males were admitted to the campus. Decades later, in 1998, the facility would shut its doors.
The waterfalls in Oregon never cease to impress and this waterfall was no different. This was stop number one on my first day in Oregon and the rocks were particularly slippery due to the temps dipping below freezing. I returned home with 2 very large bruises from slipping during this hike, but I also managed to capture a few shots so it was definitely worth it.
A skylight in this room, within the Administration section of Hudson River Psychiatric Hospital, let in just enough light to give this space a blue glow.
I miss adventures like this. It always feels so good to be out with my camera, beneath the full moon, with good friends as you're being stalked by a pack of coyotes.
