I love that picture.

Aileni said...

Suitably sombre and cheerless for such an institution - but an excellent subject.

Donna Marie said...

That is a very good shot. I like it taken from behind a fence, blurring the fence but focusing on the object outside. Great shot. Foo

Very nice shot!!

Lucy the Cat said...

This is a melancholy view of a gloomy subject. It really gives an idea of what it may have been like to have resided there. The lighting is very appropriate. This picture gives me the shivers.

So haunting. Beautiful!

Vogon Poet said...

This remind me of Piranesi's prints of prisons, modern version.

Wow, you've really conveyed the wretched misery of prison here.

Is this a prison? Looks very scary! Wouldn't like to be there in the dark!

Kilauea Poetry said...

I like everything about it..something I don't see often too. Your eyes take quite a bit in-Nice capture-

Bonnie Bonsai said...

This looks eerie in black and white James. You can tell the ghostly mood in this picture. Thanks for making me laugh over your comment left in my Weekend Memoirs.

I only sing when there's no one there. Neighbours can hear a sprite singing but they can't see who and have no way of knowing. :)

Ebie said...

Very eerie, but I love the composition and the title!

My main blog is here.

What a grand image; ominous, but spectacular!

Jacob said...

Just a little scary, James. Is it a prison?

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

what a captivating image. truly stunning and causes one to think. I also liked your fourth photo. Your technique and effects made it an excellent photo also. I am going to check out your Chinatown photos next. I started a series today on my website from my photography tour. It was quite an interesting trip to the slot canyon and Vermillion Cliffs. Also, if you like travel photos, we have posted action photos from Buenos Aires, Argentina on our travel photo site, www.vivalavoyage.com. Happy Monday!

Elizabeth Gilje said...

Lois said...

Fabulous shot! You captured the mood of this place perfectly.

Carver said...

What an interesting shot. The light at the end of the tunnel seen through a fence.

Ackworth born said...

O this is a marvellous shot - great perspective.

michael bird said...

Striking photo of a place I am happy to see from the outside only.

While "snooping" thru your Blog and observing your great Photo's, I happen to come across this one of what looks to me like the interior of the Eastern State Penitentiary, but not sure. This is one place that I'd like to visit in the near future. I've been to Independence Park twice, and toured the ole' battleship that I was with for a short time in Vietnam.

I have read many times that this ole' Prison is very haunted by inmates who have died there. Just to look at the ole' place must give you a creepy sense of so much History that has happened there.

Stay well.
