A Brush With Jail

A lucky happenstance! Whilst visiting Lincoln Castle on bank holiday weekend, it turned out there was a tour of the Victorian Jail on offer. A salutary experience, especially listening to descriptions of a number of hangings, delivered by an excellent guide, in costume no less! I waited until she took the party into a side room and then took this shot with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Apart from being impressed with the app, I feel it accentuated the desolate, austere, cruel atmosphere. I only noticed the leaning brush much later, on review - decided not to edit it out. It added a suggestion of human occupation I rather liked. Not somewhere I’d have liked to occupy myself though.
