It looked a fright

The wind out here blows nearly all the time. And it blew the curtains against the knife-sharp edges of broken glass, cutting them into shreds. It was a frightening scene, really.

This image was made from what used to be the inside of the school, which has been closed since 1975. These days, a farmer uses the school grounds for storage – the last time I stopped by, there were stacks of fiberglass fertilizer tanks against one wall of the building.

You’ve seen this place before. Here, and here, and here.

And it’s even in the header of the blog.

The place keeps changing. Not for the better, maybe, except for someone like me. You know how I am…
