Ghosts of Alcatraz

The tour of Alcatraz last night was loaded with tourists. The rock is indeed a eerily beautiful, spooky place.

Inside the main cell block, I wondered how to take a photo with all the people, not to mention other photographers, wandering about. Finally, I decided to take a long time exposure, with the hope that the people would show faintly like ghosts. For surely if ever a place is haunted, this place is.

I took this exposure at thirty seconds, and even managed to get myself in faintly as one of the “ghosts.”
