I've been sharing some images from this old prison. Here is a collection of a dozen (with a few repeaters).

This prison was the filming location of "Shawshank Redemption". Although I enjoyed that movie, I was far more interested in the prison's history and its architecture. I also very much enjoy photographing urban decay.

I selected a dozen images here, but I have many more to share at a later time.

1- Prison entrance

2- The Chapel

4- Spooky staircase

5- Elevator door

Wow! That's a cracking set. Quality images, well shot and well composed. The duplicates are different enough to warrant inclusion.

P.S. it's oneof my favorite movies

#9 is my pick of the lot. It’s always a guilty pleasure to look through your photos. Well done as always, sir!

You've done a great job capturing not only the decay but the sinister vibe of the place.

nice set but let me be honest ... that signature (the size and shape) severely and very negatively impacts the photos .. I just can't understand how some photographer deliberately does this with his/her photos after spending work with that (in the field and while processing)

Wow! Very nicely done! Shawshank is one of the few movies I'll watch over. #10 looks like a map. Great set!
Thanks Jeff...now that you mention it, it does look a lot like a map.

Thank you...of course, I have original versions without the signature. These are output that way as an action for web postings.

Then perhaps you could re-consider your signature design ... signatures in general don't improve the photos for viewers and large signatures do it largely and small signatures do it with smaller impact ... your signature is the first category ... something "usual" that fits to corner will probably suffice better

I will consider some other options for the signature...I tend to switch the design of the signature every so often.

Thanks,
Glenn

Ofc by no means I meant it as critique of your photos .. I like them very much .. and more I like the photos the more I don't like when something stands between me and the picture itself and spoils myself viewing that ...
