Scene and Story: A Bare Light Bulb

Scene and Story crept up on me.  Better late....!

Earlier in October we were given the chance to visit my husband's old high school through his sister in law who works at the school.  It was so much fun to see where he went to school!  Only a few rooms of the school are in use now.  Most of the rooms are either used for storage of physical things or for holding memories. 

This closet really caught my attention.  Not updated at all as some of the other rooms had been.  A bare light bulb lighting the narrow space.   

It's always interesting to me, what gets left behind.  Pretty sure none of this will be used in the current active classrooms.

"What now?" hangs in the air.  Much like the bare bulb.

I'm linking up with Scene and Story here.


  1. I like this capture very much and the way you have taken it in sepia.

  2. Great photo! I like how the light bulb is the brightest thing in the room, and that the light bulb is the 'old fashioned' kind. :)

  3. Thought-inspiring, and a great photo!

  4. I'm glad you remembered and joined the linkup! I love your photo - such an evocative scene, beautifully captured. The sepia tone processing sets the perfect mood. Your story reminded me of dreams I've had where I revisited my old high school, walked the halls, and looked into enpty rooms. Wonderful phrase..."what gets left behind."

  5. There's an air of mystery about have the opening sentence for a story about your scene! Really wonderful photo, Jill.

  6. What a fabulous find. Old schoolhouses, old churches, old office buildings - they are all photographic opportunities.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
