Northampton State Hospital/Asylum

Photographer Shaun O'Boyle takes the most stunning photos of ruins and places. 
Love these from his "Asylum" collection.

"From too much love of living,
From hope and fear set free,
We thank with brief thanksgiving
Whatever gods may be
That no man lives for ever;
That dead men rise up never;
That even the weariest river
Winds somewhere safe to sea."

Algernon Charles Swinburne
