After my last little adventure to Pullman Train Yard, I found something out about myself. I have an addiction. An addiction to exploring urban decay. I can't really explain it, but it's got to be a combination of history, amazing light and the chance of something jumping out that gives me a little adrenaline rush. The reasons don't matter. The photographic memories of said adventures are my trophies from the day and I'm so proud to be able to share them with you guys.
This collection of photos is from the John B Gordon school in East Atlanta, built in 1909. This was an elementary school which shut its doors in 1995. Now, urban explorers like myself can explore the dark halls, dilapidated classrooms and strangely hopeful auditorium of its ruins.
This first part of the collection includes several photos of the auditorium. I love how the shy light peeking through the windows came to my rescue and made for a series of perfect shots.
Moving from the auditorium to some classrooms...
Below is a series of photos of the classrooms, where the lights have fallen to the floor, snaking across the areas where children once sat at their desks. I love how the metal structures' shadows are cast around the rooms.
Onto the hallways.
This first photo below, "Fear", is probably my favorite in the whole collection from the John B Gordon school, for obvious reasons.
Here are a few random photos of details and doorways in the building that I found intriguing...
And finally, a self portrait...
