Hahamongna). I'm sure lessons can be learned from this building and its history, but I'm posting about it this week because I like the photos I took there.
I would be into urban exploration if I wasn't terrified of being caught and arrested, or even just embarrassed. UE is a sport for kids in athletic shoes and baggy pants--grown women aren't supposed to crawl around in abandoned buildings.
But I have some baggy pants. I wear athletic shoes (I have to, or else my feet hurt). And I love exploring the places society has left behind.
Not that this place will be abandoned forever. I'm glad Pasadena's reclaiming it. (Look what I found over at PasadenaDigitalHistory.com.)
It was fun taking pictures where the ghosts linger. I didn't have to sneak, I wasn't afraid of getting caught and I got to wear my grown-up pants.
