Another Brick in the Wall - Diptych - Alcatraz - 2011
Made by SJL
This morning Doug Kaye and I headed out to Alcatraz – on a daytime tour to help Doug prepare for an upcoming evening photo workshop that he’s taking later this month. It’s been a while since I was on “The Rock” – but it brought back lots of memories as we explored the island. My last time there I wasn’t really doing photography – and, in my experience now, I tend to slow down much more, taking a closer look at the lights and the shadows. On Alcatraz, there’s so many “crusty” shots – it was great fun! We’re still sorting through the images we captured. When I got home late this afternoon, I did a quick import and review and was struck by this particular image shot with my tiny Canon PowerShot S95 – actually, the original out of the camera is the left half of this image. We were exploring an area of the Apartments – which has a grating on the floor above that cast this incredible shadow on to a brick wall below. I tweaked the image a bit to create the right half – and then put the two of the them – original and processed – into this diptych version. I titled it “Another Brick in the Wall” – click on the image to see a large size version. From: sjl.us/main/2011/09/exploring-alcatraz.html

This was used as housing for some of the guards on Alcatraz. The graffiti welcoming Indians to Alcatraz is left over from the 1969-1971 occupation of the island by Native Americans protesting their treatment by the US government, including broken treaties and the loss of Native lands.

There's a lot of outbuildings still standing around the Alcatraz prison. Most of them are very old since this was used first as a fort and military prison, then as a Federal Penitentary.

Nancy, Vonnie, Tristan and Zoe taking a break on the bench before we tackle the hike up The Rock. Its a very steep walk, and a good ways up to get from the dock to the prison.

Being in San Francisco we had to do the Alcatraz tour which turned out to be both interesting and a good opportunity to do some photography. Recommended!
