My Blog Circle-mates and I are a teensy bit late in posting this month’s challenge, but in October we were assigned to photograph spooky. Early in the month, I returned to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philly, which—as I’ve shared in other posts—is surely one of the coolest but also creepiest places around. In its state of semi-ruin, the prison complex has plenty of atmosphere—and some would say, ghosts.
I didn’t find any when I peeked into this cell, but when I gaze at the rear wall long enough, it almost seems like a few faces emerge.
How silly of me, right? But I dare you to walk down empty, decaying cellblocks like this one without an eerie feeling settling over you.
Even the guard towers appear ominous.
As I made my way to the exit late that afternoon, a stream of ghouls, zombies, and monsters began arriving—actors reporting for that night’s Terror Behind the Walls haunted attraction. I picked up my pace. Not a place I want to be after dark.
This month I’m linking to Michelle’s blog. Can’t wait to see what she’s scared up. (Yes, I went for it. Hey, I’m an English teacher—I have license to use bad puns.)
