I recently was taking photos of the State Penitentiary in Anamosa, Iowa. It is massive and
old stone building, built in the 1880s.  Creepy too, of course.  After a bit a uniformed
guard in a pick-up pulls up next.  He says, "Da boss and dem want to know what yur takin'
pictures for."  I wanted to say that I am planning a jail break, but I was dutifully humble
and explained I liked the building and wanted a few photos of it.  I was reprimanded.  I
apologized.  I figured the view from this side was better than the other so I didn't get
wise, as it were.  On the way out of town, I got this shot and nobody challenged me in the
taking of it.
