    • Hi Lori. On this particular trip I did not take my kids. I think my boys would have found it very interesting – the history, etc. It might have been too much for my daughter. Not in a frightening way though. It really wasn’t scary at all. I have heard it is haunted though and they put on quite a haunted house production in October of each year. I’ve never been – that would be too frightening for me!!!

  1. Trying to imagine myself in this situation is nearly impossible, until for a split second I find myself through the sliding door and it renders me speechless.

  2. This is so emotional and intense. The lighting is fabulous and the mood, just perfect. Well done! xo

    • Hey Charlie! Thanks for commenting! This is certainly an image that stimulates emotion. I have others from this trip that I’ll share soon, that aren’t quite as striking in terms of the “message” they convey. I hope you like them as we’ll! Have a great week! R-

  3. This is a powerful image….haunting in the very least….I’ve looked at this 3 times prior to posting this comment and every time I am more emotionally disturbed….and intrigued… amazing image reflecting the human condition…..

    • It is certainly thought provoking Greg. The concept of solitary confinement is so controversial and emotionally fueled. Just touring the penitentiary was a bit overwhelming as my thoughts went to the people who had inhabited the cells. Have a great night! Robyn

  4. Now I am wishing I brought a interchangeable lens camera with me instead of a fixed lens camera on my visit here 🙂 Your images are beautiful.

    • Thanks so much Joe! It is a great place to experiment! If you ever visit there again let me know and I’ll try to meet you there! Such a cool place and yes, you really do need to be able to play with focal length while there! If shooting in the evening at the Penn you also need a tripod! Take good care!
