The Cell Block

The wind whistled through the empty corridor. Plastic covering the windows flapped as the wind blew. Footsteps echoed the length of the building. One would say it was the consequence of an old building; others would say that it was the sound of ghosts from prisoners gone, walking the hall and whistling to pass the time.



I have to admit that I loved wandering this old prison. Mind you, if you go during the winter, take gloves. The woman inside recommended I grab my coat if I had one. I had a shacket (which I’m pretty sure is just a fancy way of saying flannel shirt) on, which isn’t as heavy as my winter coat but was surprisingly warm so at first I wasn’t worried about it. Yeah, about that. My issue ended up being my hands and the lack of gloves, those I never even thought to grab before making the four hour trip to Ohio. I regretted it within an hour. Thankfully, I had also forgotten to grab a backup battery and ended up having to run back out to my car before finishing my tour. I went ahead and grabbed my heavy coat because the pockets are better.

For those wondering, it was a self-guided tour (masks required) and it took me about two hours. There is the option to add a audio thing to your tour. Like a little wireless speaker that tells you the history, I opted out of it. I liked making up my own stories as I shuffled around.

I hope you enjoy the photograph.

Live, laugh, love, and let it ride.
