    Default St Johns Lunatic Asylum - Lincoln - May '08


    well 10 to 9 i had the dentist £63 down i nipped off to rutland water and failed miserably with every shot i took ( i now had the day off ) so text goldie87 see if he was up for anything, as usual raring to go with nowhere to go since id missed the previous trip to St Johns we popped down there

    rather dubious of there being much worth seeing but still itching to tick another asylum off the list, well first site of that big white water tower and i wanted up it unfortunatly right near security

    anyway started walking the wards went up a small towed thing and in the basements and then the ballroom...............WOW!!!

    and that staircase is quite something too!!

    thankyou to goldie87 for the driving



    today i was also shooting motion picture although after speanding an hour allready messing around with editing thats taken a back seat and is going to take forever todo



    funky glass bricks



    throught id spook the builders out



    loving the way theyve just slapped fiberboard over the old panneld doors



    first glimpse of that 'ex' covered walkway



    love the ceilings in this place, worth a visit for them alone



    blue door, love this shot (idiot mode) point and shoot seems to have picked up the colours nicely so im now quite satisfied i went D-SLR





    loved the staircase!!!



    and the cast embelem thingys



    and now for the wow...



    now in my mind ladders are there to be climbed this one was no exeption



    so that will be shimmy along the wall clutching the fire hose reel waiting for the joists to come adrift from the wall somehow then balance on the other joist along the far wall then to the red pipe thing and to the 3rd step of the ladder.....major sweat on by the time id reached a sturdy point,,,,wasnt all that far to fall just nothing nice to fall on



    :)



    rather stupid but worth it in the end





    rather scary looking lemur in the childrens ward



    some flakey paint



    the phonebox





    corridoors



    water tower and admin? tower

    Cheers guys,
