Here is the luxurious cell for Al Capone. Capone spent most of his prison life at Alcatraz, but did spend 8 months at the Eastern State Penitentiary. From 1929-1930. I asked the tour guide this day why he had the only comfortable cell? She replied that is unknown, but just as he arrived an anonymous donator gave some big funds to the prison. They had new baseball uniforms and a cell Martha Stewart would be happy to have! LOL My last post form here for a while. The next shot will be “locked up” for a a month or so!
On a recent visit to the Philadelphia area…I had a chance to stop by the amazing Eastern State Penitentiary. Now I have been to Alcatraz and was not too impressed. This abandoned prison is super cool! 30 foot walls surround the cell blocks. You cant visit every block, but they have enough available to fill your time and enjoyment! If you are in the area and love ghost stories and HDR’s…this is a must visit!!! The whole place is an HDR in waiting…decaying cells, rock walls, rusty pipes, brick…all the ingredients needed for great pics! Even Al Capone’s cell! Look for more soon!
PS..this was my first ever 9 exposure HDR! With so many details in this place…I decided to go with more brackets. =)
