A Trip Out East

Over fall break I had a great time traveling out east.  I enjoyed time at home in western Pennsylvania, as well as visits in New Jersey and Philadelphia.  It was great to visit family and friends and I loved capturing the beauty of fall in some photos.  When I was in Philadelphia, I was able to visit the Eastern State Penitentiary, a former American prison where separate incarceration was pioneered (and where Al Capone stayed for a while).  We took the last tour before the Halloween haunted tours began, thankfully… it was creepy enough without people jumping out at us.  It was a really intriguing place and had some great light streaming in for photos.  I was so thankful for a two-week fall break!
