A Walk Down The Haunted Hall

I recently took advantage of an opportunity to photograph at the Eastern State Penitentiary when the former prison was opened for evening hours specifically for photographers.  Some photographers brought their studio with them;  lighting, models, etc.  Others, like me brought only tripods and cameras and just photographed the old, dilapidated building.  I did however, happen to be in the right place at the right time and captured the reflection of a model walking down the hallway to meet her photographer.  I loved the combination of the old with the modern.  She was wearing blue and white with red stilettos and caring a red handbag.  As you will see in future posts about this shoot, the red did not compliment colors on the walls and thus I chose to present it in black and white.

  1. Incredible shot! The model, the crumbling walls, the former glory, if you will, of the penitentury. We just do not build like this anymore. Where is this place located?

    • Hi Laurie! It’s in Philly, and it is so cool! The building is so old and as you said they don’t build buildings like that today. It looks like an old fortress on the outside. Blessings, Robyn

  2. This amazing photo was more than just perfect timing, Robyn! Everything was perfect; the set/setting, the black and white mood…your steady hand, of course, and the “walker” in the mirror.
    Stunning!

  3. (Robyn–I posted this 28 min. ago, and nothing happened. If it does come through, finally, please delete this one. But I REALLY liked this picture and wanted to tell you…even though WordPress was acting up again.)
