Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

Australian bushranger, Ned Kelly. Some consider him to be a murderous villain, while others view him as a folk hero and Australia’s equivalent of Robin Hood.
Kelly was born in Victoria to an Irish convict father, and as a young man he clashed with the Victoria Police over mistreatment of his family. His mother was sent to jail on a trivial charge to draw him out of hiding.
Following an incident at his home in 1878, police parties searched for him in the bush. After he and his gang killed three policemen, the colonial government proclaimed Kelly and his gang including two of his brothers, wanted outlaws.
A final violent confrontation with police took place at Glenrowan on 28 June 1880. Kelly, dressed in home-made plate metal armour and a helmet, was injured, captured and sent to gaol. He was convicted of three counts of wilful murder and hanged at Old Melbourne Gaol in November 1880.
His daring and notoriety made him an iconic figure in Australian history, folklore, literature, art and film. Mick Jagger once played his character in a movie.

This photo is a reenactment by a friend of mine.
