I like it, although to me it doesn't fit with your other photos on the subject. It is still about the natural light, and imparts a very moody feel, but doesn't have anything to define it as part of a jail. I'm assuming those are pipes running up the wall, rather than bars. Anyways -nice moody well done shot, just out of place in the series to me.

Thanks Larry!

It's tied to the series by the title of the blog post ("Caldwell County Jail #3)! :-)

I was trying to capture the feel of the whole institution, not just the cells themselves. For example I'll probably post a shot of the outside of the jail at some point.
