    Hi everyone :) 

    The Old Administration Building at Fresno City College is under renovation to bring back part of the colleges history. The photography department was able to walk around inside before construction got under way. It was incredible and creepy all at the same time. These are just a few shots.

    These images don't really say "creepy" to me... There is more of a somber, sad feeling I get.

    To know that once this was a place alive with young minds, ready to learn, eager to get out and experience life. I guess, lonely would be a good way to describe it.

    I think you did a great job capturing a mood. I love the lighting and cool tones...

    The weakest in my opinion would be the last one. I think it lacks the continuity of theme that the others have. It (again, in my opinion) doesn't really fit.

    Wonderful job! Very nice.
  8. Great composition, you have a wonderful eye. Do you have a website? I would love to see some more of you're work :) 
  9. very nice shots, michelle
    you are right about it being CREEPY
    you did a great job of portraying that sense to the viewer

    well done
  10. Wow! Such an appreciation for the dignity of an old place! Love how you captured the feeling of age and neglect and the promise of a future (that last shot)!

    Nice shots wonderfully composed and framed.

    These shots reflect frenso very well... dark, eerie, moldy... not very pleasant... lol

    Very nice series, Michelle. The lighting in your 1st is exceptional.
  14. These pictures are excellent! Are you in the photography department at that college? If so, they must be doing something right. And the photos on your website are pretty amazing, too.
