My "Spooky Locations" Contribution
I take Shepherd Rd. a lot, so I drive by this place all of the time, but I never have my camera with me. So, tonight when I was leaving to meet my family for dinner in Mount Pleasant I grabbed my camera and stopped on my way to the restaurant. I hoped that I wouldn't be asked about being on the property, but I knew I wasn't harming anybody by being there.
At first, I took a couple of pictures from the driveway, but as I compared the shots I was taking to the ones I've seen come across my newsfeed, I realized that I really needed to take a photo from directly in front of the building. I walked into the yard, and began lining my camera for my next shot. In between photos, I reflected on how dilapidated and empty the building was. For a moment, I tried to peer into one of its windows, wondering how freaky it would be if I suddenly spotted a face staring back at me, or if strange figures emerged from the front doorway and began watching me from the front porch.
I took a couple of more photos, then drifted back towards my car. I took another far-away photo of the house, then got into my car and left.
