Hi; while I'd like to think my photography work consists more of pandering (that's up to you), I fail to see how posting a photograph of found Polaroids violates the ADA or Alabama law. I think that if anything, Bryce Hospital has violated HIPPA law by leaving identifiable photographs of patients laying around after vacating the building, no?

I blur out faces, names, social security numbers, and all kinds of personal information left behind in these places, and I think it's important to show people the reality of what gets left behind in disused buildings despite the laws that have been put in place to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

One more comment, your posting of these types of pictures is nothing more that pandering to the worst side of peoples curosity. However, your posting of the poloroids, etc, that included pictures of patients, is a direct violation of the ADA (federal American Disabilities Act ), and Alabama Law. Take them down!

I worked there for 30 years. Your pictures only show the trash it became after being abandoned by the courts and politics. It wasn't a pleasent place, but a great deal of compassion was shown by the people who worked there with the patients. More than shown by the probate courts that committed the people to get them out of the way.

"Kudzu was first introduced to the United States in 1876 at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The Soil Erosion Service recommended the use of kudzu to help control erosion of slopes which led to the government-aided distribution of 85 million seedlings and government-funded plantings of kudzu..."

Kudzu root contains starch and can be made into many different dishes. But it's not exactly a staple food. I'm Chinese and I hardly ever eat kudzu products.

DME, you are right on the money with your comments. We comment on the same things (i.e. shopping carts) when we go shopping. In fact, will take carts back into the store on our way in and then shake our heads in amazement when we come back out ten minutes later and find just as many (if not more) back in the same place.
So sad to see how a piece of art and history just left to erode. Just looking at the architectural work done in the rotunda makes me sad to see that this company never saw the need to establish a memorial fund to continue preserving this landmark. Another part of history just left to fade away. I want to thank this site for keeping it alive through here!
I like the waterway

Hmm, not sure how I'm feeling about this. On the one hand you're letting the creator know about the scumbag thief, so +1. On the other hand you're being a squealer, and a kiss-ass (but there's no shortage of that around here, so no points subtracted for that) -1. Total - EVEN Let us agree, Karma will come swiftly to deliver sweet justice to the foul creature, AND let the punishment of being a morally, and clearly creatively bankrupt empty vessel, be a constant reminder from their own conscience!

I'll see myself out, thanks.

Oh, and people are stupid! They'd rather buy partical board furniture for $700 that lasts 3 months, than spend half that amount on beautiful vintage/antique furniture (and this is coming from an idiot with absolutely ZERO class, and very little knowledge about such things.) I've purchased old furniture, refinished/repurposed it, and there is NO comparison! The Quality, the aesthetic. There's very little work needed to end up with something you actually want to be a permanent fixture in your home.

@eldokid I can give you an answer that, while long winded, is sure to cover any/every possible situation regarding your query... [ahem].
BLOODSUCKING LAWYERS!
Waddaya know, that wasn't as long winded as I thought it would be.
