The Ball Game
Back to the abandoned property of St. Paul's Abbey in Andover, NJ. This time, it's looking up a small road running along the back of the large main building. I keep checking online for any news on the fate of this property but haven't found any recent updates. As with so many of the abandoned places I've visited, it seems all too few are being restored to their former grandeur and put to good use again. Most remain lonely ghosts of their former selves that I will continue to photograph and preserve in my artwork. The distinguished gentleman on the road and mischievous girls hiding in the bushes are from my vintage photo collection. The birds patrolling the sky are from a trip to Marlboro, NJ and the ball that prompted the title belonged to my beloved ferrets, all of whom have passed on.
