Eastern State Penitentiary, Cellblock 1

Another image from the E.S.P., taken with the Canon 20D. This image amazes me because of how pleasant it looks. I mean, it’s a prison, for crying out loud! The light is beautiful, and is what makes all the difference. My next image posted will show another cellblock, which is not open to the public, and has bad light. You’ll see the difference.

Eastern State Penitentiary Chapel

This image was made at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, built in the 1820’s. It is famous as the first all-solitary confinement prison. It is also famous for having been “home” to Al Capone. The image was made with the Canon 20D with the kit lens. You may notice a streak of blur across the lower center of the image; this is not a capture of ectoplasm from the ghosts that are said to haunt the place, but a smear on the window of the locked door through which I had to take this photo. It makes it a less than perfect image, but I still like it.

Valley Creek, Pennsylvania

Can there be anywhere prettier than this? This image was made using my Canon 20D using the kit lens.

This came out closer to what I was hoping for. I will next be trying this with distilled water to see if that gives different results than our hard tap water. This image was made using my Canon 20D with a Canon 100mm macro lens.

Splash 1

Yes, it’s true. I’m once again playing with water. I haven’t gotten the kind of results I’m looking for yet, but I thought this one was pretty cool…
