Wind-whipped windows from the abandoned boarding school in Sarnes, Norway.

    1. A agree. The photos are sad, and I think they reflect the feelings of some of the children who lived in the boarding school. Some of them must have felt abandoned, as they had to move away from their families when they were as young as 7 years old. But I also think the photos show a will to survive, as the curtains “cling” to the window frame.

    1. Thank you Alex. I also love windows. I can’t even count how many photos I’ve taken of them. I think of all the stories they hold within them.

  1. I love portals of all kinds – these windows are great! You have captured color, texture, line – these cracks could tell some intriguing stories if they could talk…

    1. I agree. I love taking photos of windows. They hold so many untold stories. I think these windows hold a lot of heart ache. Children had to move away from their families when they were 7 years old to attend school. My mother’s heart just breaks when I think about it.

      1. Taking children away from their families to put them into residential schools sounds so similar to the stories of Canadian Aboriginals – so much heartache and sad memories… it shaped generations – and not in a good way!

    1. Thank you, “All is well” 🙂 I like that as well. I think it’s fascinating that they’ve managed to hold through storms and harsh winters.

    1. Thank you and no, I don’t mind. It’s nice to hear that you want to share the pictures with other people. That’s the best compliment one can receive 🙂

  2. love the atmosphere of abandoned buildings. and these windows and walls have seen so many people come and go….
