Eastern State Penitentiary
Photographs taken with my NikonD70s
OK -- I admit it: My husband and I have a very macabre hobby...we love to visit cemeteries; haunted restaurants; abandoned buildings and go ghost-hunting. I will always remember our visit to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia...what a nightmare it must have been to have been an inmate here. The penal philosophy of that time was that prisoners would see the error of his or her ways; if they had spare; solitary confinement in which to reflect on their crimes. We spent many hours here; exploring on our own time. Eastern State is definitely one of the most spooky and creepy places we've ever been.
