Didn't know that did you? I didn't either.
Fifteen years ago, I had taught at an area prison that had a dramatic image that I wanted to capture on camera. I wanted the image for a book I'm publishing on Smashwords.com, Renata With Love, in which a prison figures prominently. It would have made a dramatic cover.
So, I thought, why not drive down the way I used to go to teach there, and take a couple of pictures with my new digital camera. Bad idea!
I had forgotten, if I ever knew, that taking pictures of the prison was a no-no. Since I didn't have a digital camera when I taught there, and had had no reason to want to take a picture of it, I probably never paid attention. It's actually a state crime!
I came up towards the visiting room entrance, having taken a panoramic view; I was going to take pictures along the wall, with the bucolic setting in the distance. I snapped one.
One of two guards asked me what I was doing.
