The Sky is Free

Yep, I just got Photoshop.
Thousands of inmates lived and died in Eastern State Penitentiary. I wonder how many of them watched the same sky as the people on the outside and felt a connection even a momentary sense of freedom.
You might have guessed that yesterday's picture was taken here too.

  10. Now, that is Picture Perfect James. How much does it cost you to have Photoshop?

    I think we can download it online for a fee? But I don't have the facility!

    Enjoy your photography better because your pictures are coming out the BEST!

  13. I can just hope that today's prisons are a bit more human... even if I wonder if they ever can watch the sky! Maybe a Photoshop version? :-)

  15. I like the second overexposed version too even if the sky is washed out. It has something that makes the prison look so...intriguing.
