They were talking on the news about something I think is related - it has to do with mug shots?
They say they are putting ALL mug shots up on some website, and if you are innocent, you have to pay them thousands to take them down.
Now I am paranoid about my photo - period. In my case, I think it would be a religious thing, because it has to do with my deep seated personal
beliefs, even if I don't have a bible that says "Thou shalt not put thou photo for strangers and people that hate you to get"
I have never been arrested, but I did have someone take my photo on the street last week - and the first thing I thought was, is that person going to
put MY image IN a mug shot and post it to some ruin your reputation if you don't pay site? The guy swore he wasn't taking a picture of me - he said
some bullcrap about it was muggy one city over and was trying to show his friend the fine weather we were having, but he wouldn't let me SEE it.
OK, then, I noticed him and another woman taking pictures of other people. I stopped the lady and said "HEY! You should ASK him if it is ok to take
his picture. He was like, why do you want to take my picture? And she said we don't have people like you in Florida." He shrugged and didn't fuss.
I'd have wanted to POP her for insulting me and taking my photo like that.
So why are people running around flea markets taking pictures? What's up with that?
I do not like my photo to be taken. I am really quite a magickal thinker, and I do not like people having access to my photo. You won't find it
online - if you do, it's not really me, it's someone else, usually not even the right race or sex. I detest having my driver's license picture taken.
I have to and I try to look as unlike me as I can that day even if it involves blue eye shadow.
My family does not have photos of me. I'll keep the power of my image intact on my body thank you.
Oh and I checked with a relative, and it wasn't muggy at all when he said it was that day. He was lying.
