Got a new camera recently and got to test it out at Alcatraz! Certainly an inspiring place on many levels. Here's some of the shots I took, I'm going to get these printed on canvas to get a real textured look.
These were rusted storage doors along the harbor where we got onto the ferry. I love the rich and distressed colors!
Below is a wall heating unit, again should look pretty cool on canvas!
Cement wall, with some brick and rock mixed in. I love that pop of red brick showing through!
And some more brick :) Amazing color variety from the aging of these buildings!
How fun to have a photo like this propped in a bookcase!
Curiously-creepy hallway, definately makes you wonder who else has wandered here...
Not sure what it is about this pic, but I just really like it! I actually meant to take it in color, but I haven't yet mastered quickly changing my camera settings yet! One of those accidents you're glad you made :)
So I'm sure you can see I am no way an experienced or techie photographer...I just take pictures of what's interesting! I'm a big fan of textures in home decor, food and clothing, so I was just lookin for some of that variety on my trip to Alcatraz. For all my photos I always use SnapFish (http://www2.snapfish.com/snapfish/welcome) for minor editing and printing. They've got lots of fun ideas for photo-gifts.
