A disturbing image, very thought provking and powerful. Black and white is perfect for the feel of the photo. F/V

Bob Orsillo replied:

Blair - much appreciated!

Now you have my curiosity..........growing up in southern Maine ...they used to say: if you don't behave you're going to get "sent up!" It always meant to be sent to the jail up North...was this it?? Great photo Bob! Just had to ask.....

Bob Orsillo replied:

Are you saying you did not behave :) ... Nope the place you are thinking about if closer to Bangor or maybe the one near Ft Kent.

Haunting. . f/v

Bob Orsillo replied:

Cori - Thank you! :)

What a powerful image and meaningful statement! It makes me dream that some day, all the prisons in the world will just be ghostly memories of a barbaric past. Outstanding and compelling work!
