I am known for shooting most of my images at 17mm with everything in focus, but when I walked by and peered into this broken window, I couldn't resist the framing and shallow depth of field.

Oh blue hour. You quietly tease us with a 15 minute dance twice a day. I wish you could stay a little bit longer. You make the peeling paint even more glorious, bask a historic building so beautifully in a blue glow and make everything seem more peaceful...
If you follow my photography or blog, you’ve likely heard how devastated I am that this beautiful, former asylum has met its demise. When I took this photo, I was standing in a corridor that is now merely a memory.
People often ask me why I shoot these locations and this building right here is a perfect example why. I first photographed this hospital 6 years ago and I returned last year for a second time. Here we are one year later and nothing remains but a small center section of the building. These places are vanishing rapidly and I want to be there to document as many historic sites as I can.

Sadly, the beautiful Kirkbride building at the Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital is at the end of her life. Demolition is looming in the very near future for this architectural beauty.
In honor of this glorious structure, I have added a new photo gallery on my website: http://amyheiden.com/greystone-park-psychiatric/
