A day on The Rock


I've lived near San Francisco most of my life and had never taken the Red & White cruise to Alcatraz, although I had always wanted too, but it never worked out. Alcatraz started out as a Civil War era fort, then military prison and finally a Federal Penitentiary, for the worst of the worst, including Al Capone, the Birdman of Alcatraz, Machine Gun Kelly and more.

When I was around 9 years old 3 convicts had escaped the island while we were visiting the city and were never heard from again. Most thought they were drowned and carried out to sea due to the cold water, powerful currents and rip tides that the bay flushes out to sea daily. But... they are not 100% sure they didn't make it. The man-hunt had always captured my imagination, so I throughly enjoyed my day on The Rock! :D I used NIK filters and OnOne software plus Lightroom on these.
