Locked Up.

This beast was constructed in 1906 when it replaced the older building that was originally built in 1853. Old creepy history here. I did some shooting here in 2001 but haven't maneged to return until recently. Very large, old, cold in the summer, dark, almost zero graffiti. The counties last execution took place here. You can see the trap door that let the unfortunate victim drop to die and dangle. The prison stopped serving it's purpose in 1979, sitting silently waiting...

  1. That one through the star into the cell is so bad-ass. The fantastic composition of the shot of the flaking, blue wall with that (tragic) drop ceiling in the background? Nicely done.
