The hotel where I am staying in Paris for the night.
A little over a week ago, I had the chance to visit an abandoned hospital here in LA called Linda Vista Hospital. It was closed in 1991 and has since been used for various movie and tv sets. Nightmare on Elm Street was shot there, part of Season 1 Dexter, and many others. An LA photographer got permission into the hospital so he opened the opportunity for others. Of course, you know I wouldn’t pass up an opportunity like this! All of the photographers were men so when I showed up they thought that I was one of the models (yeah right). I got there a bit late so I just wandered around checking out the basement and first floor while everyone was doing photo shoots with models. The place is enormous with six floors in addition to the basement. It still contains some equipment and leftovers from previous industry sets (including dried blood, which made everything all that more freaky). And like every abandoned place, it is supposedly haunted. I took about 450 photos in a couple of hours, but narrowed it down to these as my favorites from the day…
