As is customary Viveca and I visited some nice decayed places over the holidays. This is a partially abandoned prison in Cornwall, UK. It was built in 1779 for prisoners of war and saw 50 public executions, the last of which was in 1909. The prison was closed in 1922 and was left to rot.

It is a tourist attraction and well worth a visit, its supposedly haunted and is quite spooky and I have a couple of images with (possibly) unexplained lines of light that I cannot quite put my finger on, these will be up in the next few days. The great thing about the prison is that it has not been restored or tided up too much for tourists and therefore maintains a foreboding atmosphere.

I’m going to be trying to refine my processing somewhat over the next few weeks so hopefully there will be a marked increase in the quality of images in the future.
