Inside Eastern State Penitentiary 2

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 3 October 2009 in Documentary & Street.

I've been posting pictures from my trip to Boston over Labor Day weekend, but I thought I would take a break and revisit Eastern State Penitentiary. This shot was taken at the same location as a previous post, but from a perspective several inches lower. I think the first shot gives a sense of the vastness while this shot brings the viewer to appreciate what it might have felt like to be a prisoner inside the walls of this Philadelphia prison.

If you enjoy my work you may visit my permanent website where you can view my photos.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
