bg/ish: The Rock

So we went to Alcatraz a couple weeks ago. None of us had ever been. Personally, I had no idea what to expect. I’d heard the tour was informative and interesting, and I suppose it proved to be as much.

As far as taking pictures goes though…

Well it’s weird. They pack you on a boat with a couple hundred other peeps and most are packing cameras and rolling with a pack mentality. Shuffle along slowly. * Snap * The whole experience teetered on the brink of being, for lack of a better word, boring. However!… we overcame, got our minds working by shooting a bunch of mostly inane shapes and forms in the structures. I’ve excluded most of those from the gallery that follows though, and have just focused on our views of the city and perspective of “The Rock”.
