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! 😀
The post is called Haunted because it looks like this place is stuck in 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 🙂
PS: 2nd part will be uploaded soon, still working on it!
