Actually, my wife was the one who composed this picture and released the shutter, so I had to replace my name by her's. -Gerald

Thanks to all for your comments.

Yes, this is really me. How did some of you know this?

After such a long time in Alcatraz where I could reflect about my situation I came to the conclusion that I have to change the author's name of this entry. In fact, the picture was taken by my wife Dagmar (who also had the idea to post this shot in this challenge); I only posed for the shot and did the postprocessing. Neither of the two of us considered that posting under my name would not be in accordance with the facts. So I have to confess: I was found guilty of copyright infringement and confined to jail from 1998 to 2005...

Cat, I have digitized the slide with a slide scanner. The result needed a lot of postprocessing. The strip around my neck is the strip of a portable audio guide (but that p&s had a similar one).

Cute idea, Gerald. Only problem I can see is (*) the guy forgot to put on his prison garbs! :-) Markjay

You couldn't have been "thinking" too hard to find yourself behind bars.... but were definitely thinking when you thought of this. Great shot! - Tom

Gerald! LOL, This IS funny. Did you get caught taking pictures or something? And is that a p&s I see hanging around your neck? I see you have used a slide film, how did you convert to a digital from it? -Cat

Now this is too good, Gerald. Probably one of the only "room" photos I'll like in the challenge. Good job. Now step away from the bars while we let you out for chow.
