Look through the bars at Alcatraz

Looking down a closed off corridor or street in Alcatraz Prison, San Francisco. I watched a few minutes of “Escape From Alcatraz” last night and recognised a few locations – the canteen of course, and the ventilation shafts behind the cells are visible to anyone who looks.

I wonder how many feet plodded down this street and who was incarcerated there.

Thanks for the comments on my posts too, it’s encouragement to keep posting so if you feel like adding your two cents don’t be shy!

    Excellent job with the blurred wire – it gives a very effective claustrophobic feel to this.

    Fantastic shot, it makes me wish I had a Sigma 10-20mm to call my own, hah.
