San Francisco is one of my favorite American cities, I adore it. We went a few times this past summer and each time we weren’t able to visit Alcatraz island because of the tours being booked months in advance. This is a shot from across the bay at the spot of the aforementioned sold out tickets. I’ve never been to Alcatraz but I think it would be an interesting tour. The thing that surprised me the most about its history when I was doing a little pre-tour research is that people (other than inmates) lived on the island, families. How odd it must of been to grow up on an island that was home to the most reviled criminals of the era.
I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.
