    Arrow St Mary's Asylum, March 2010


    St mary's asylum has always seemed like the ultimate asylum to me and after hearing of it's possible demise to the demolition crews, it was really a now or never type situation.



    The history has been covered before, and there's a few other recent threads which look at other aspects of the site which are worth a look at! :thumb

    Explored initially with Hmltnangel, Cuban bloodhound, Celo, Sandman and Theoss and later on with Silverstealth, Tumbles and Sinnerman :) . It was brilliant weather, which always makes a massive difference for both photos and just the general atmosphere. I could really do with another three days to explore this place properly. 1 day to find the rest of my way around, a day for getting better photos and also, just a day to take the place in without the camera! Unfortunately, Aberdeen is a just a wee bit too much out of the road to make regular trips!

    but anyways, cheers lads for a great day :thumb

    a pretty mingin' photo of the admin front door - couldn't get it to turn out nice for some reason.


    In the kitchens. the stain on the door looked like the shadow of a person when i first glanced at it from a distance!

    I've got details for it now mate, we can add it to the list when we go out soon ;)
    Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet, and I am you and what I see is me

    Ali that's a bit of a clichéd self portrait there. :p
    I really want to go back now, especially knowing that it's being demolished.
