prison trees…

with 9 comments

“bare”

after 3 miles of hills and wind resistance i find myself riding slowly past a prison.  i saw these incredibly sad-looking trees, i thought, “i’m here, they’re there, my camera’s in my bag… sure i’ll take the picture, why not?”  so how was i supposed to know you’re not allowed to photograph stuff right outside of a prison???  i got off my bike, walked over to the fence, took a few shots, and was done in less than 5 mins.  as i’m walking back to my bike – a mere 6 to 8 ft. away – not one, or two, but three vehicles circled me. all three quite normal looking, but clearly the men inside weren’t your average civilian.  they had bullet proof vests under their “security” t-shirts and gun holsters with guns in their utility belts.  as one all three get out of each of their cars, i realize that i probably shouldn’t have stopped to take pictures.  the chubbiest of the three men asked in a kind-hearted manner “what are you doing?”  i explained that i was only taking a photograph of the sad-looking trees, he asked to see the pictures and after about 10 mins of interrogation to make sure i wasn’t a terrorist or trying to break anyone out, he let me go.  i nearly got arrested for this shot.  as i walked back to my bike i thought “this shot was well worth it.”   anyway, another black and white here.  hope it’s enjoyable.
