ghost cats

Halloween in Philadelphia always brings talk of the Eastern State Penitentiary, a creepy old historical prison where they do a haunted house every year.
Right now you can also view an exhibit called Ghost Cats by Linda Brenner. The work consists of a series of white cat sculptures, representing the colony of cats that lived on the prison grounds until the closing in 1971.
The photos are by Freddy Sarabia on JPG

Hi Suzi!
I have been there and it is super spooky. They have a haunted house in the fall…but I find the year round, regular tour to be pretty scary indeed. Its in a pretty interesting location in Philly as well-right in the midst of a residential neighborhood with cute restaurants, coffee shops and salons.

Eastern State Penitentiary is one of my favorite places to photograph. I hope that people enjoy my Ghost Cat pictures. Thanks for the post.
