Mug Shots!!!

These were in another room in the Intuit gallery. Mug shots! Walls and walls of mug shots. I really liked looking at all those faces. I kept wondering what they did to get arrested, if they felt bad, if they were treated poorly, what their childhood was like and who was really worried about them. Some of the mug shots were of women, and some were of very young children. Some people were smiling, and others looked really angry and unfriendly. I can't imagine what the old man above this writing did. He looks like the kind of guy who would give his grand-kids sweet candies from his pocket.

This seems to be a great exhibit! I too wonder sometimes about those old pictures. What did a sweet looking old man do to end up in a place like such as Alcatraz or elsewhere.
