Not Every Photograph I Take Is Artistic, But That's OK

Sometimes while photographing abandoned buildings, I snap images strictly for documentation purposes.

In this case, Mayview State Hospital in Pennsylvania was already in the process of being demo'd when I saw the campus for the first time. For that reason, I shot more building exteriors and photos out windows than I have in the past. In particular, the tubercular wards on the campus were some of the oldest remaining buildings and I felt they were worth a few shots.

In a few decades nothing will remain of this former asylum, but hopefully images like this will help people see what once was.
