Cell Block 5

This is another in the series of images from Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia PA. This place was a treasure trove of photo ops. Such interesting light and textures, and such a grim mood there, yet at the same time totally captivating. It was such an odd juxtaposition. I felt excited by the possibilities and yet the gloom did instill a creepy uneasy feeling.

This was taken on a photo meet up with Betsy Barron, Dan Creighton, Pat Shorten, Ed Heaton, Kelly Heaton, Paul Michko, Lindsay, Russ Devan, Russell Jackson, and Mark (Sherpa) Jackson, at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia PA on June 5, 2009. It was raining and nasty out which was the perfect weather to be in this place. Check out the slideshow page for more.

I want to take a moment to express my sympathies for the people of Iran during such turbulent times. I hope and pray that they have their voices heard and that the terrible violence against them is ended. I am including some links in this post at the request of a fellow photoblogger.
