Old House

Yet another shot from our tootling. I think this was somewhere between Allentown and Reading. Note to self: get a checklist…

Hot House Remains

If you’ve been around this blog very long, you may recognize this building. It’s an abandoned Victorian hot house on the grounds of Valley Forge Historical National Park. The other images I’ve posted can be seen here and here. I’ve visited this site numerous times in the last year, and have dozens of images of it. I think part of what I like about it is the repeated lines and angles in the structure, as well as the irony of a building that existed in order to grow plants being abandoned by people, just to have it overtaken by plants. Kinda cool…

Abandoned House

This image was made somewhere in the back roads of Pennsylvania. It was part of our tootling trip last weekend.

Window Gear

I found this mechanism at Ellis Island. It was used to open the windows to ventilate the processing hall back in the day.

Eastern State Penitentiary, Cellblock 5

 

 

As promised, here is an image of another cellblock at E.S.P. It is not open for the public to wander through, so it is in a more “natural” state than cellblock one. The light is also different, making the whole mood of the shot more “moody”. These images were all made in the afternoon. The light would be dramatically different at a different time of day.

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.
