I was recently in a position to walk around a local high school around twilight. There’s something serene about looking into closed and dark classrooms. The gaggle and chaos of the school day has disappeared, and one is left with an impression of a well used space quiet and calm. I used my Nokia Lumia 1020 for the following photos.
I love the way the sulfide lights from outside spill across the classroom desks here. The light really emphasises the emptiness of the space and draws skeletal shadows on the floor.
During the day, the lunch shed is full of students eating and chatting. After dusk, the space is home to long shadows and echoes.
