Open Prison

This computer doesn't have photoshop and so this picture is a pretty hard to see recreation of the awesome 'adbuster' kind of thing that I saw on this billboard today.

It says:
HMP London
Open Prison
ID Must be Carried at all Times

(HMP stands for Her Majesty's Prison, what all prisons in the UK are called)

Now that I look at it again it looks like someone off the streets sprayed that on wall. The govt would not place such a black and white image / message on a billboard. It looks like something out of 1984. Still slightly scary.

I absolutely love this photo. This is why I need to get out of Fargo so I can do things like this. I need to take pictures of dirty places with interesting people God damn it!

Many of us would find Fargo an amazing change too!

Perhaps you could arrange a house swap for a month or so???

Hey, I've just come across you on the internet blogg lark, seems like you've got it working for you.

HMP LONDON, Open prison.

Very funny. I escaped back up North. However, every city as soon as it begins to repeat its self is at Her Majesty's plessure.

shame.

There's a good one up by Clapton Pond, I'm going to use it as a starting point in a secondary school lesson tomorrow.

The whole ID card idea is expensive, illogical, disturbing, and certain to be ineffective. Labour has lost the plot.
