Artist's Description

In this case, yes and no. The former Montana State Penitentiary now functions as a consortium of museums. Construction for the Territorial Prison began in 1870, and the first convict was brought here in 1871. Only in 1979, was this facility replaced by the new Montana State Prison, also located in Powell County, just outside of the city of Deer Lodge.

The street running alongside the stone wall is part of the former U.S. Highway 10.

Taken April 1, 2010, in Deer Lodge, Montana.

Nikon D80 DSLR, Nikkor 16-85 mm wide angle/tele/zoom lens set at 62 mm.

ISO 100, f /38.0, 1/6 second.

Finished in Photoshop CS4.
