    Litterly. This school was build circa 1921 as a middle school, serving this small town and later also a high school, untill it closed its' doors in 1965. The fact all the high school graduates being mostly male, went off to WWII and Vietnam, caused the little town to die, leaving now a population of around 30. Now, the school stands emtpy and negleted...which I like!!! Tons of good angles, textures and color. Not much for a problem with lighting, because most of the doors are broken open and the roof has holes in it. Not from chavs, but bad weather. I used my new 7mp digital/zoom to take these, since I haven't used digital in a dog's age, lol. It was fun using it on this site, and am getting adjusted to it. However, the Canon Rebel is far from being retired!!! :lol: Here's a few of them:

    1. The outside, front entrance.

    5. 1st floor restroom doors.

    Some really nice work there. Agree with manaheim, a little more post in some, and lose the date-stamp!

    Thanks guys. The date stamp! I know...it's on by default and I'm trying to figure out how to turn it off! Rawr! I'm soo old school with my Canon....this digital thing is going to take time to get used to. Another thing is, I'm used to having a lens to grab onto and a view window to stick on my face...I did that once with this digital, lol. My digital is not that big or has that body. Ah well. The pics turned out better than I expected....so I guess I just need to keep practicing with it.

    Cheers!

    Does it create the feeling of nostalgia in you? Sad maybe?.
    Do you think the DSLR will make better picture? I think it is worth reshooting if it is not too far.

    For some reason, the first shot reminds me of Springfield Elementry!

    These are nice, but I agree with Passerby, I would have shot them with the DSLR. Can I ask why you used a P&S? It has the signature P&S look with some of the zoomed shots.
