Artist's Description

this is the Abbey Chapel which barely survived the devistating fire which demolished Alma College in May of 2008.

The rubble on the right side of the photo is just a quarter of a quarer of what’s left of the beautiful Alma College.

I did take photos the day that it went up in flames, along with Mike Whitman who took the very recognized photograph Alma College Fire

my photo’s i’ve posted on redbubble are as follows:

Eerie and Endangered. RIP Alma College
which is a photo i took a month before the fire took over the city.

Risen From The Ashes Of Dear Alma
a photo i took of the cleaned up Ampitheatre about a month after the fire. The students who attended the school would have graduation and plays here.

Broken Abbey
The twisted metal in the chapel windows after the fire…the heat forced the steel to twist.

Goodbye Alma
The day it went up …we were walking to the other side of the property to get different angle photos. i didn’t get there til the fire was mostly out, but i did get this picture, and this photograph says ALOT to me, and to our community here in St. Thomas. so much history….gone…this photo has a bit of history on the school if you care to read.
