The Long Way Home

The ghost of a girl supposedly haunts the green room pictured above, which is why the ball and the toy duck were left there. I didn’t know this when I entered it, but I didn’t feel her presence. I wanted to feel something when I walked those hallways, but what I felt was mostly sadness,  a heaviness that I attribute to being in a place with a dark history and my grief. Through barred windows and broken doors, rooms flooded with light.

I had that same music box when I was a child. Very eerie.

I had one that was similar too. When I see them with ballerina still intact, I get pretty excited. I pulled mine off the spring so I could carry her around for good luck.

This is a great series of photos, Lisa. It’s so sad to think of the lives people must have led here.

thank you, cait – it was a sad place. i was hoping that came through in the photos rather than just ‘creepy’ (which, at points, it was a bit creepy. or rather, eerie).
