Hello from Eastern State Penitentiary

Sorry, but no guest post for this week. Instead, take a look at these photos I took during a recent visit to Eastern State Penitentiary, a former prison in the center of Philadelphia's Fairmount neighborhood.

It's supposedly one of the most haunted places in America, but I didn't see any ghosts (well, except for maybe this cute little guy I found on a wall).

However, it is a very creepy, ruined, looming building that's worth checking out for the atmosphere alone.

Ghost Cats is an art installation in the prison. These cat statues are everywhere, representing the stray cats that resided in the prison after it closed in 1971.

Some writing I found on walls of a cell.

Prison cell where no famous criminal stayed.

Prison cell where Al Capone stayed.
