And Old Jail
On a recent visit to the Gold Country of California, I discovered this old jail site. It sat in silence, but it spoke volumes. The rusty jail bars, and metal hooks on the ground to perhaps chain up a prisoner were there, and strong still. Even though the rock building was crumbling around the metal cages. I wondered about the criminals that were held there, and innocent victims of circumstance. I took the opportunity to photograph one of my favorite things, rust!
