A few short years ago my husband and I visited Alcatraz for the first time. We had been to California many times in the past, but never made the trip to the famous prison. I don’t know how to describe the feelings that ran through my body while I was there. The only word that comes to my mind is “haunting”. I imagined it to be “touristy”, but to my surprise I found it to be a very powerful experience. One that stayed with me for a very long time.
This video is a compilation of photos that I took during our tour. The music is composed by a dear friend, David Mihaly, who lives in San Francisco, and shares my feelings about this prison graveyard.
