Mug shot reveals identifying characteristic



Picture of the Moment

Seems law enforcement agencies are posting mug shots to Facebook and agency blogs in today’s world.

Some of them do make for an interesting break from work. Justin Bieber’s comes to mind.

Recently I went for a walk at Lake Murray, a large lake about a half mile from me.

Lots of birds, and this beautiful pigeon decided he wanted his mug shot taken:

White pigeon

It kept walking up and down, back and forth, perhaps used to people feeding food to it.

I, on the other hand, was looking for identifying characteristics, sometimes difficult to find on wildlife that is all white.

A-ha! (not the group)

We found an identifying characteristic:

Identifying characteristic

It will not get away from us now! We’ve got him!

    And once he’s listed, he can’t avoid notice even elsewhere.
    (Interesting note: the artists that draw images described by victims are dwindling in number, but they are excited about a new technology and facial recognition software that scans their drawn images and then scans criminal mug shot/prison images data bases to look for matches. Pretty amazing – the drawn images are so close to the real pictures. So far some have been identified this way.) So pigeons, watch out!

            And not much creative thought/problem solving learned without those. (All to prove some educator’s thesis is credible, no doubt)
            We’ll all pay for such foolishness…wait, we already are.
            Schools about to open? Run kids – run run far far away – it’s the only hope.

    Hi Russel
    Would you like to participate in a blogathon? It would be good for publicising your work.
    This blog tour originated with Kelly Lewis who stated, “The purpose of this tour is to showcase fellow writers with emphasis around the writing process itself to spread great words, get insights, and to show support in this isolating craft we embark on.”

    I’ll be posting my blog on July 28th, answering 4 short questions about my writing process and mentioning whoever is following me a week later. (that’s you and 3 others who’ve agreed)

    Your turn would be on August 4th.All you have to do at the start of your blog post on that day is acknowledge the person who invited you (me!) with a link back to my blog post (I’ll send you a link when I post it) and answer the four questions below. Prior to posting, you’ll tag up to two or three other authors to follow you.

    You’ll assign them a date either one or two weeks after your own post (your choice as it whether it’s one or two weeks later, but all posts should run on the same day.) After your intro and answering these four questions, you’ll list the short bios of the authors who are following you. They provide the bios and photo to you ahead of time along with their web page or blog link.

    The four questions to answer in your blog post of July 28th:

    1) What am I working on?

    2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?

    3) Why do I write what I do?

    4) How does my writing process work?

    I hope you can join!
    There are no strings or tricks & it is not a con!

      Hey, Grace. Thank you for the invitation. I’m going to pass, though, because I consider myself a photographer over an author. I love to write, but since writing is not what I’m dedicated to, I think it would be wrong of me to take a spot in the blogathon that rightly should go to someone else who is an author, considers himself/herself to be an author, wants to be an author, etc.

    Russel, where’s the background height chart? And the little name plate in front saying Stool Pigeon. 🙂
