PennhurST set 2 - 13

Posted by
Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 14 October 2014 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Not sure why so many tvs were needed on one wall. Perhaps they could view all programs on all channels at once? Happy ST
I thought for the month of October in anticipation of Halloween, I would return to Pennhurst . abandoned asylum. I took all of these images with the HDR setting on my camera.
I value your comments.
Sorry I was out on a photo shoot all weekend. I am catching up.

SONY NEX-C3 1/4 second F/11.0 ISO 400 18 mm

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.
