One last shot from the Washburne Trade School series. I may post more intermittently, but this shows an interesting part of our exploration of the building. There was just fascinating stuff lying around everywhere. If you looked closely, there were signs of life kind of frozen in time. This was a student's notebook and a marked-up copy of Catcher In The Rye. One could spend a year in there sifting through the junk just on the floor. Be sure to check out John from Photoentropy's site today; John's still got some great stuff he's putting up from our visit.

** You may have noticed that the archived shots are mis-aligned with the old template. I am still in the long and tedious process of up-rezzing all 320 of the previous MRB shots. Once those are all done I'll be able to upgrade the entire site. Right now it's only the homepage that uses the new template. Thanks for your patience as I continue the upgrades to the site.

I like the personal items. Why would this stuff have been left behind though. Wouldn't the school have had notice of the closing and had everything cleared out?

only a keen photographer could ever think that some dilapidated stuff like these could actually make a poignant, provoking image. look at that rusty depicts time and memories.
