Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry #2

Control Panel in “The Hole”- Eastern State Penitentiary

Click here to visit the Eastern State Penitentiary website



  1. Very nice, love the colors here too.

  2. Fantastic.

  3. Great picture–Based on the tags, I see that this prison was in Pennsylvania. It makes me want to know the story behind it.

    • It is an interesting place rumored to be full of spirits!

      • Thanks for the link. I’d never heard of this historic site. It looks a lot like Alcatraz. I’ll have to visit it if I get the the Philadelphia area.

      • It is definitely worth a visit! I loved it.

  4. Interesting photo selection for that challenge, good one Nancy. I find these places tooooo spooky. Even in daylight. The effect of Human suffering just never disapates from these hallowed shrines.

    • Well said my friend. This place really has weird energy, it is scary though.

  5. Looks scary! You could clean it up though and turn it into a beauty salon very easily..huh? LOL! I wouldn’t want to camp out there for the night, that’s for sure!

    • This time of the year they make it into a haunted house/prison. I don’t think I could make it through without peeing my pants, tehe It is hard enough not to do that during the day. lol

  6. I do love the geometry in that photo. And such history and emotion behind it! I live near Philadelphia so I know about Eastern Penitentiary, although I have never been there. Not my kind of place.

  7. Oh and such a LOVELY place you visited 🙂

  8. Who would have thought that a Penitentiary could make for such a stunning photograph.
