School has started again (as made evident by how late I am at posting this, which I shouldn’t be doing because of the many research projects I have due) but I thought I would post my monthly photos which aren’t so much “monthly” as it is “a day in September”.
With school having started, I never really got a chance to get out and take pictures the same way I did during the summer. To be honest I only went out to take pictures once this month, which makes me sad but what can you do when you’re an undergrad. Luckily I have a friend who likes photography just as much as I do and happens to be taking a photography class and likes to drag me on assignment missions with her.
She was looking for something interesting and different for her assignment and we remembered that there was this old abandoned building of sorts in a park near where we live so we thought we would just go and check it out.
When we got there we found that the gate on the side of the building leading into the back had been cut open or left open, we weren’t sure, and we ended up just walking right through to the back of what we learned to be an abandoned petting zoo. I wish I had managed to get a picture of it but walking through it, it looked like something out of an apocalyptic film and if it weren’t for the sounds of the city I would have almost believed it.
We found a children’s play structure tucked off to the side of the main path which to me gave off this sort of creepy vibe about it. Something about the overgrown grass around it and the graffiti and just the overall washed out look of it was kind of a creepy sight. I don’t know how to explain it but anything to do with children’s things just left forgotten always comes off as eerie. It’s also not a style of play structure we see anymore, most things are made of plastic and metal now, so to see one made of wood again brought me back to my childhood.
Even though not much happened during September this little adventure made up for the lack of fun I’m having now with school having started again.
