The Old Idaho Penitentiary
Boise, Idaho

This is what's left of the 1898 dining hall at the old Idaho Penitentiary just outside Boise. It was set on fire and rendered uninhabitable in the prison riots that took place there in 1973.

The metal beams and cables are what's holding it all together.

Zoom is better.

This is what happens when they run out of ice cream at dinner time. Nice capture. The cables make it look like some sort of art project.

I like the way this turned out very much...this is as close to a Roman ruin we can get here in the USA:-)

I was surprised by the number of thoughts and emotions this conjures in me.

If you pluck those cables, will they make a tune that causes the entire structure to dance? Just wondering. What a shot! What an image! This is a place I'd love to explore. There's so much to see!

Ooooh, this is my kind of place, to wonder about all the different colors and shapes.
A most fantastic recording from this interesting old 'stuff', Tara!

What a great POV here, I love the texture of those old bricks. This is like a viewing window into the past. And LOL @Chip! I'd like to see that dance, it would be most amusing!

Awesome looking
Bet if there ghosts this would be a place for them to be much violence and death occurred here......
Neat looking image...........

a wonder it hasn't been investigated by all these paranormal shows they are doing on t.v now
Great capture
