    There are constant reminders of the outside world at the California Men’s Colony. The prison, nestled in the seaside mountains outside of San Luis Obispo, is routinely enveloped by a thick fog that rolls in from the ocean at dawn. Seagulls and other birds fly overhead, stop occasionally to perch on the razor wire encircling the yard, and fly away at a whim. The birds are a reminder of the world outside, which many people in this prison will never again experience.

  • Final Salute Photo Gallery

    From The Digital Journalist: A single Marine might be able to fold a flag for the widow of a fallen brother. But it wouldn’t have the perfect feel the job demands.

    The same might be said of the story Final Salute by photographer Todd Heisler and reporter Jim Sheeler of the Rocky Mountain News. Of course, Todd’s photographs stand on their own. As do Jim’s words. Separately, they were recognized by the American Society of Newspaper Editors as the best examples of photojournalism and non-deadline writing in 2005. But together, these two talented journalists created something more complete and more powerful than either could have done alone.
