Inside one of the patient wings of a former Alabama State Hospital, at sunrise. 

This asylum opened in 1861 and remained in operation for over 100 years. In 2010, the University of Alabama purchased the property and demolished most of the hospital's wings, keeping only the administration section of this historic relic.
