Irony on Alcatraz
Category: Sense of Place
Photo and caption by Hali Riggleman
Photo taken on my trip to California earlier this month. We visited Alcatraz on a night tour, giving me some perfect light to work with while waiting for the ferry to transport us back to Pier 39. The water tower reads: "PEACE AND FREEDOM HOME OF THE FREE" Which is ironic, because I think the only thing free on Alcatraz Island were the seagulls.
