'Behind The Tennis Courts', from the series ' The Boarding School'. 2009 - 2011


The last rays of daylight struggled to peer through the black clouds. Darkness surrounded me as I stood in the middle of the playing fields. I stared out towards the boundary of dense forest. The night time creatures began their haunting song. I looked out over the faintly moonlit tennis courts and an unfamiliar light caught my eye. I crept slowly over to investigate. Getting closer and closer, clambering through long uncut grass, I made it to the sheds behind the tennis court. My heart beating louder than my thoughts, I quietly moved forwards as close as I could. Unusual noises surrounded me as I pressed the shutter. I noticed the giant padlock. I picked up the camera. I ran.
