Above are a couple of pictures I took during a photography workshop at the Mansfield Reformatory in Mansfield Ohio. Erected in the late 1800s, the prison was closed a few decades ago but is maintained as an historic site. In the intervening time its been used as the setting for a number of movies, most notably the Shawshank Redemption. It was a fascinating experience and if you are near Mansfield Ohio I recommend stopping in for a tour.
BTW – my apologizes for the dearth of posts lately, but some recent changes has left me with a serious shortness of free time.
