Dark Hallways

Β The dark hallways in the abandoned anti-tuberculosis sanatorium Agramonte on mountain Moncayo, Aragon.

  1. Wow it hit me and then hit me again in a different way when I read what it had once been. I guess like people, until we hear each other’s stories we cannot pretend to know the other. This scene appeared to be one thing and then became another….I could hear the voices of the dying. Regards

    • Thanks for your thoughts, Leanne! The story behind it surely makes the place twice as intrigueing as without knowing. And although I’ve never heard anything it still feels like there are things present!

    • Sorry I did that, Noeline, I think it’s all in your own mind over there, you can scare yourself as much as you want, cuz everything echoes and sounds of nature coming from all directions; luckily I’m not easily scared, although I wouldnt go there after sunset πŸ˜‰

      • Ha – you’re right … and probably not helped by the gloomy weather here! Imagining it on a sunny day alive with the sounds of nature certainly changes the impression – less eerie, more melancholy. So, you don’t fancy trying something similar with moonlight shining through the windows then? πŸ™‚

        • Luckily we don’t get much gloomy weather here!
          I would go there at night, never heard of someone dying (apart from falling through the roof or so) in what legends say are haunted places, but not alone πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks, Rommel, did you check all 350? πŸ˜‰
      Glad you like it, but I personally think it’s just one of those abandoned hallway shots, just a different place.

  2. enjoy these empty hallway shots – how much drama unfolded here? i can still see the humaness – you must have felt it. used to get great shots in abandoned houses cottages in irleand country sides – sometimes still photos on the mantle – the pope the bleeding heart of jesus and piles of old jackdaw nesting materials in the fire place between…

    • The cool thing about this place is that it’s in the middle of a forest on a mountain and nature is taking it back. That means the sounds of nature echo through the hallways and verandas of this place; it used to be a place where people with tuberculosis have healthy air to recover and live, but ofcourse that didnt work for all of them. Wow, that sounds like very cool abandoned places as well, just only sometimes it feels like I was the first somewhere, but not in this Sanatorium!

    • Thanks, Edith, didnt do much processing, apart from lightening up the wall, cuz it seems wp does darken my photos a bit upon posting, and when they’re so dark already there’s not much left…
