    ooOOOOOoooo!!!!! WAY COOL!!!! I think I’m heading up there on the 9th … can’t WAIT!!!!!

  • Thanks Lois!!! Have you been there before? It’s my 2nd time… This time we booked a tour for 3 hours… Thought I’d see more but it was pretty basic and similar to the rest of the place. The only luxury was not having people there and we had entire cell block for 5 people. I was completely done in 2.5 hours, the rest of the day we shot in public areas… Not as many people as I saw last year – which is great! I hate people HAHA :))))

    You guys are so lucky in regards to these sorts of scenes. Over here the minute anything is disused it’s knocked down and replaced with some gaudy concrete monstrocity.

  • Thanks so much Sean!!! Actually unlike most places that require trespassing, this one was left as is and turned into a museum so I was shooting without fearing being caught! :)) You should come visit us! Although I have a hard time picturing this type of stuff in your gallery :)

    Looks like it has been knocked on a few times too many. Very cool. Exposure and details are perfect!

  • Hey Joe :) Glad you liked! I don’t even know how that got in there… They have different kinds of doors for cells… Weird…

    No, I didn’t go last year … am looking forward to it, though!!!

  • If you’re taking a tour, 3 hours might be too much time. We need to finally connect somehow Lois!!! Wish you went last weekend…
