One of the abandoned, decaying (and supposedly haunted) buildings on the grounds of Rhode Island's "Ladd School for the Feeble Minded".

The extreme center focus of this photograph is caused by taking the lens out of a Brownie Hawkeye camera and putting it back in backwards. This gives the image a Lensbaby-like effect. It is a very easy techique to try because Brownie Hawkeyes are one of the most popular antique cameras and it is very easy to take out the lens and reverse it. Your parents or grandparents probably have one of these cameras in their closet. Go look for one and try this out!

For more information about this technique, google brownie hawkeye flipped lens.

Ps. Thanks for the spotlight, Danica!
