captured by the fuzz

Here lately I have been slightly obsessing over old mugshot images.
They posses a beauty that no modern mugshot will be able to carry-especially those of women.
Who were these women, and what did they do to get locked up?
I wish there was a way to know the answers to these questions, but for now, i'll continue to make up my own stories about the lives they might have lead.

I have old photographs that i have found & collected over the years scattered throughout my room and in boxes here and there. Now I'm on the search for the next best thing-old mugshots!

Wow! Those are crazy pictures! Funny, first thing I thought when I saw and read your blog was Brandon and his obsession with mugshots and the death penalty. HA!

I don't know what to say yet... I think I'm still trying to believe you posted these, they are just so great. I'm just kinda jaw-dropped-half- smile-"whaaaaat[.]?"
