I don't speak "NO TRESPASSING"
I like old buildings. I like them better than new. I like them here, I like them there.
I like them pert near anywhere. ;)
I've always had a fascination with old and especially abandoned buildings. When I was 15, my friend Tiffany and I found an abandoned school in Mineral, VA. Of course, we went in. Paint peeling off the walls and ceilings, dangling light fixtures, and broken windows- It was amazing.
"No Trespassing" is Gobbledegook and I don't speak that language. I never find them scary or creepy, just something that is both old and new at the same time and it beckons me to explore.
I never knew anyone else that was quite as intrigued as me. Until... I saw an article about a woman named Niki Feijen who photographed abandoned places. I was NOT the only one! Funny, I've learned over the years that many of the oddities that I think belong solely to me are actually shared.
