|Windoweyes - © Jelrik Nylund-van Berkel|
For this weeks theme, I went to the old mental institution of Lier. This institution was build in 1927 and a lot of buildings are in the typical mental institution style. High, odd colors, old fashioned windows. It is the same architecture through the whole of "health Norway". The style of Ullevål University Hospital, Dikemark mental institution etc...
In those buildings, they say there are ghosts. A few people made pictures there with strange shadows when developping. I can say that the buildings totally gave me the creeps. Oh my god... There was wind blowing and windows opening and closing, thing falling down, strange sounds, a very odd smell of old building. I didn't enter the buildings because it is strictly forbidden and penalty's are given when caught...
I took this picture because I had a feeling that those windows were looking at me. The building's eyes. The curtains were like flags in the wind: one waving goodbye to me and one pressed between the windows.
Have a nice tour also through the other pictures here
