Photographer's Note

Last in the line of stairs, these ones are a bit moreshall we say, wretched?!! After visiting the prison itself, I casually took my time around The Rock and came upon this view. Alcatraz inmates must have been tortured with not only the beautiful skyline and excitement of San Franciso just out of reach, but also the never-ending thoughts of Freedomso close, and yet so far away!

As you can see, a lot of the islands grounds have been left in a state of disrepair, but I loved all of the texture it presented and thought this would at least make for an interesting photo. I can remember being so intently concerned with getting a steady shot that I forgot to pay attention to the aperture, and regrettably left a lot of the focus unsharpened. Live and learn, right? :)

Thanks for taking a look!
