I like this one a lot, but the one from yesterday is great also. A very interesting series and the stark black and white treatment really gives these images a mood...Like Larry, it makes me very glad I have never ended up in a place like that (yet).

Without doubt, this is my favorite. I really like the perspective that this one has. The way you move from bottom to top and from dark to light and you have the steps leading you up to the door. The fact that one wall has the bars and the opposite wall has their shadows helps create additional interest in the walls. It has so much going for it.

I would be very proud to have taken this photograph. Outstanding photograph. Keep it up, as I know you will.

Thanks Cindi and Patrick!

I'm glad you guys are enjoying this series of photos as much as I am! I still can't beleive I didn't do anything with these at the time I took them! I guess the good news is that not doing anything with them for a while allowed me the fantastic experience of "finding" them! :-)

The jail series continues to deliver!

In other words the jail series hasn't turned to pots! :-)
