Haunted (gallery) pt.1

  • Abandoned School

  • This is an abandoned school close to my house. It burned more than 20 years ago and has been abandoned ever since.
    My brother and I used to spend almost every day here with out friends when we were young, we’d play football in the yard and ride our bikes around the place. Now there are weeds taller than me everywhere, a lot of the stairways have collapsed and the 2nd floor is inaccessible in some places. Seems like this building is doomed to decay for all eternity, plus at night it’s very cold and dark, as you can see. There’s barely any light around, and I while I was there, I got the feeling like I was being watched. Not saying it was a ghost or something like that, but I did wake a bat up and he started flying around me lol that was pretty scary actually, i couldn’t see him! ๐Ÿ˜€

    The post is called Haunted because it looks like this place is stuck inย time and not meant to have any use again, and because it feels very strange and eerie, especially at night.
    That’s why the photos are black and white and very dark with a cold blue tone. Oh, and also, because I couldn’t see anything while I was there Lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS: 2nd part will be uploaded soon, still working on it!

      • Wow thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€ Well I was dressed like a ninja so i could hide pretty easily if anything or anyone was there lol But yeah it’s always a bit risky to go to these places at night, who knows what could happen.


    1. Their are very few abandoned buildings in The Netherlands, and it is always fascinating to me. Lovely photos! And a school that feels like a prison? Hmm, sounds like my childhood memories ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Have a great day!

      Kind regards,


      • Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€ You should visit Madeira, it’s full of them if you know where to look! ๐Ÿ™‚

        • It is on my wish-list to visit during spring sometime. Haha, that is fun! I just hated being inside, and did not enjoy learning useless lessons (as I experienced them like that back then) from horrible teachers ๐Ÿ˜‰

          Thank you, you too!
