Warm spring sun throws rays across a patient bed in a dayroom at a village style asylum in Connecticut.
At its peak this asylum had more than 100 buildings sprawling across over 900 acres serving more than 3,000 patients thus the name “One of Three Thousand”.

    Actually looks quite cheery, compared with most, with all the light coming through. Where do you guys find these places to shoot?
