Henryton Hospital Sanitarium
Gosh it's been nine days since I was out shooting. I have been on a home project painting my kitchen and turned down several invites to visit Henryton with Tony, Barb, Kathleen, Don and Arthur. Today I was able to get out and while Barb has been there now five or six times I was just getting started....so here are a few from the place I made today. Barb and I met Arthur, Jeff and Kathleen there to do some shooting. I admit the place is a little creepy. Having grown up in the area, where we used to goof off in Marriotsville and Woodstock as kids, we stayed clear away from the place as it was a sanitarium for the mentally impaired and there were lots of stories about what went on there. Walking into the place for the first time I was a little uneasy, but soon the photo mojo took over and it just became a photo opportunity for High Dynamic Range images. Most of these images are 7 bracketed images processed in Photomatix, then worked again in Photoshop. I'd like to go back to explore more than the first floor in the oldest building.
