Shot: Alcatraz Island

After touring the prison, we walked down the hill and found an art gallery at the bottom. It had a really interesting exhibit on prisoners around the USA and their stories, but, really, I fell in love with the old building it was exhibited in. It had these nice-colored turquoise window frames, old peeling cream paint, huge shattered window panes intact, and a huge old sign at the back - the play of textures was gorgeous! I wanted to move in, which is one of our favorite hobbies while travelling: imagining all the weird and unexpected places we could live.
