This is great Lois. I love this kind of stuff. I hope you will be posting more in Abandoned and Forlorn. I'm having a bit of a problem getting my head around the fact that only 6 152 viewers have marked it as a favorite. Go figure. f/v

Lois Bryan replied:

Don, you are so kind, thank you!! You have to remember, though, this image has been up since April of 2011 ... long before anyone understood the significance of the votes. Maybe that has something to do with it ... ??Regardless, thank you!!!! Your note and f/v are truly appreciated!!!!!

Hi Reb, thank you!!! This particular place has been visited by many photographers and tho I have one image that I will post one of these days, it's been done by several other of my friends. So what I was really searching for while I was there was a spot that was a little different ... and this was it. They practically had to chase me out, but I got the shot, lol!!!!!!! Thanks again!!!!

Verdun/Montreal, QC - Canada

This picture attracts me very much.. It is the tones and darkened edges that make it so mysterious and intriguing... I love the watch tower in the background.. I often go to old areas of Montreal and photograph scenes of the old buildings.. I like your creative method here..

The Pennsylvania Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cell blocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world's first true 'penitentiary,' a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America's most notorious criminals, including bank robber 'Slick Willie' Sutton and Al Capone.

My thanks to the "Eastern State Penitentiary": website for the above information.

Seen here is the food preparation area, to the right was once the bakery. In the background stands the more modern watch tower. The penitentiary was opened in 1829 and closed in 1970.

Image taken on April 12, 2011. Nikon D300 with Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens on Manfroto tripod. Seven individual images merged in Photomatix Pro for hdr image and blended with textures in Photoshop CS4. Additional tinkering in Photoshop and Capture NX2.

~My thanks to Princess of Shadows at Deviant Art and Skeletal Mess at Flickr for the textures.~
