#776. Records of Misdeeds

Taken this past Saturday at the Austin County Jail Museum in Bellville, Texas. I suspect that if you tried to handle these old record books now the pages would turn to dust in your hands. Probably no one who ever spent a night in the drunk tank in this old jail is still alive but if they are, and if this is the only record of their visit, there secret is surely safe. :-)

Title: "Records of Misdeeds"

Camera / lens: Canon 5D Mark II / Canon 24-105mm L zoom
Post-processing: Photomatix Pro to combine three exposures into one HDR (High Dynamic Range) image > Photoshop CS4 > Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 plugin

Oh how much I enjoy the intensity of the scene - yet I would love to see the whole scene been shifted a bit to the right, for the door feels so heavily cut this way.

Anyway... the mood, the "smell" that comes from the books is really intense.
