bg/ish: The Rock

So we went to Alcatraz a couple weeks ago. None of us had ever been. Personally, I had no idea what to expect. I'd heard the tour was informative and interesting, and I suppose it proved to be as much.

As far as taking pictures goes though...

Well it's weird. They pack you on a boat with a couple hundred other peeps and most are packing cameras and rolling with a pack mentality. Shuffle along slowly. * Snap * The whole experience teetered on the brink of being, for lack of a better word, boring. However!... we overcame, got our minds working by shooting a bunch of mostly inane shapes and forms in the structures. I've excluded most of those from the gallery that follows though, and have just focused on our views of the city and perspective of "The Rock".

Alcatraz...

Could it be ?
D's striking semblance to a European tourist (2) & apparition of bg in his coffin (9)

And did we have to further exploit the seals? Although i suppose it serves as a nice metaphor for group tourism and how it leaves one to feel..

The seals are a metaphor for nothing!... oh wait...

no, not sexual feelings per se. actually not at all.

the fact that he looks like an apparition is exactly it for the 9th.

the 2nd...i'm going to refrain. i shouldn't have said anything in the first place. but now that it's out there, it can't be brought back. "irregardless".

seals are dangerous. seals claim more lives than psoriasis each year. that's an irrefutable fact!

...and knowing is half the battle.
