De Gracy and Dalton

Honestly, I could just as easily picked any other picture from this collection. They're all amazing. My friend Tay said of one, "That's not a mug shot, that's fashion photography." As far as these two, between the eyes and the scar, I want to write a series of novels about their exploits.

This sounds ugly but I'm sort of glad those guys are probably dead now.

Tay is right, I've never seen a mug shot quite like this before... http://collection.hht.net.au/firsthhtpictures/fullRecordPicture.jsp?recnoListAttr=recnoList&recno=31185

If you squint a bit, they look like Tom Waits and an actor who I can't quite remember. He looks a bit like David Morse, but that's not him. Grahhh! Brain. Broke.
