Paintball Target - Graffiti Underground, Philadelphia , Pennsylvania

Here is something a bit different from me. Back about six years ago, I signed up for a day of urban exploration (also known as urbex) to the Eastern State Penitentiary, a mecca for urban photographers. The day started at the Philadelphia's Graffiti Underground, located on an abandoned loading pier jutting out into the Delaware River. It is just a few minutes from the center of the city off of Route 95. I had grown up outside of Philadelphia and lived there for almost forty years and had never heard of it before. The underground is pretty big and is covered with graffiti. It also looks like it has been used extensively by paintballers. It looks like this cement "tase can" was a favorite target. The grit and decay associated with urbex can be seen at the underground as well as the great colors of the graffiti.
