The Columbia River Gorge has hundreds if not thousands of waterfalls. I have yet to be disappointed by one I’ve seen and these falls were no different. The terrain, light and foliage varied so much here that I took dozens of images, all very different from one another.
Looking across into the Launch Silo No.3 of the Beale 851-C Titan I Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Base in Northern California.
During the operating years, 1962 - 1965, this silo would have contained a crib structure that would have supported the missile. These days, this base sits empty collecting dust, waiting to be purchased.
Patient rooms, such as this, inside the former Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in New Jersey were designed to hold one or two patients, but within about 10 years of opening, the hospital experienced severe overcrowding and was treating almost double the patients it was designed to treat. Patients were crammed to these small rooms and beds were added and moved into the hallways.
Sometimes the world makes you feel so small…
This theatre was part of a facility for feeble-minded women, particularly between the ages of 16 and 45. It was designed to detain, segregate, care for and train these women and operated from 1920 to 1998.
Despite the hospital’s dark history, this theatre was quite beautiful. I loved the worn texture of the wooden seats, the missing tiles on the ceiling playing a game of Tetris and the beautiful massive windows with gaudy golden draperies.
