First Cell on The Right

 The First Cell on The Right-Eastern State Penitentiary

One of my favorite locations to shoot, located smack in the middle of a quiet little Philadelphia neighborhood looms this awesome structure. Anyone that has ever had the experience of shooting this place knows that it is a major drain of memory cards, this place is just to cool if you like shooting these types of scenes. For a small charge they let you roam most of the areas with a tripod in hand, if you time your visit right you may even catch a slow period where you don’t have to fight people in every frame. It was a rainy gloomy day on this visit, which was perfect.

Nothing like roaming around a haunted penitentiary with tripod in hand, thanks for stopping!

and Happy New Year!

  3. Cool symmetry and great grit Wiz! Would love to shoot that place!

  4. I know this spot quite well Mike. It is my favorite location in the penitentiary and you have done it justice. I need to get back there soon as it is not that far from home and I have family in the area.

  5. Love, love, love this Mike! Great details and textures here, Mike, they really captivated me for quite some time as I tried to really take in the scene as a whole.
