Taken with my Rebel K2 (film)

More trespassing at the abandoned Alabama Insane Hospital. A genuinely historical and spooky place to walk through, fraught with problems and mistreatment of innocent, vulnerable people.

Disclaimer: I know invalid is probably not a cool way to describe a human, but that was the word at the time of the functioning Alabama Insane Hospital.

Happy exploring, all. Cheers, R.

Mannequins left in the attic of an second hand shop – taken with my Rebel K2 (film)

I like thrift stores and second hand stores. Someone loved a Thing then stopped loving the Thing then sold the Thing for money then someone else came to own the Thing in hopes that someone else will love the Thing and decide to own the Thing.

Or maybe the Thing will just gather dust and mold and decay in an attic until it’s forgotten forever.

Humans and Things are neat.

I drew this with charcoals. I don’t like using my words, but here’s me trying.

Last night I had a dream that rats overtook the place where I lived.

They were chewing through the window screens on both floors of my house.

We tried to keep them out as long as we could but had to flee and watch them invade our home.

They were coming up the stairs and gnawing through the floorboards and breeding in the closets.

They were too fast and too many to keep in my sight.

My home is a Thing they were not allowed to enter

Or to be inside of

Or to feel that they had a right to make their own

Or make themselves comfortable in.

I called my family.

They showed me how to quickly snap the rats’ necks.

I didn’t like doing that. I am gentle and love animals and my family.

They told me that was the most painless way to destroy an animal.
